Mason High School recently welcomed the Class of 2016 with a Freshmen Spirit Party.
More than 600 incoming freshmen attended the event, where upperclassmen, known as “Sibs,”, lead students on tours of the building and helped them learn their schedules and locker combinations.
Motivational speaker Chris Bowers of Bowers Success Development spoke to students, who also participated in ice-breaker games and informational sessions. The event ended with a spirited pep rally.
