Welcome to William Mason School

Welcome to the William Mason Elementary School! Our building is one of five elementary facilities that service Montville Township. We currently house a student population of just under 300 children, K-5, and approximately 60 faculty and support personnel.

 

Our educational belief embraces the notion that all children can learn and have that right. Here at Mason, we continue to work hard in creating and maintaining an educational environment that is both meaningful and exciting and that addresses the individual and collective needs of all of our students.

 

We are delighted that you have chosen to login to your school’s website. As you begin to navigate through the many options offered, you’ll be afforded access to an array of information, materials, and resources. From time to time, you may click on an area that is under construction. It is our way of updating and expanding the opportunity to better service you.  

 

WILLIAM MASON MISSION STATEMENT

William Mason School aims to provide its students with a learning environment that is safe, fosters learning and encourages respect of one another.  Parents will feel that their children are safe and they are seen as individuals who are provided with the opportunity to thrive in their social, emotional and academic pursuits.  Teachers will value the school community as well as their professional role within the learning environment.  The school community can be seen as an extension of their own family; priding themselves in being an integral part of the lives of children.

A Bright Future - Superintendent's Column, November 2022 The "Superintendent's Column,"  by Dr. Thomas A. Gorman.

A Bright Future - I recently visited a “swearing-in ceremony” of the Woodmont Elementary School 5th grade student safety patrol volunteers by the Morris County Sheriff. Prior to the ceremony, I asked the students what they wanted to be when they grow up. Four young women said they wanted to be scientists, several students expressed interest in working with animals, some of the children told me they would become a doctor, and one young man, with full conviction, shared his desire to interpret satellite images. In this brief moment of interacting with these students, they enthusiastically shot their hands in the air to be picked to share their future endeavors. When called upon, they smiled brightly and proudly shared their dreams. They spoke to me with confidence and joy.

Respect: A Self-Evident Truth - Superintendent's Column October 2022 Dr. Thomas A. Gorman, Superintendent's Column - October 2022

Respect is fragile and not easily come by. As we too often see in the news, respect is rare - The basic human right of respect was penned by Thomas Jefferson 246 years ago in the Declaration of Independence when he wrote, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”  Understanding that we all are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness means that we all have the same equality to these rights as our neighbor or classmate. These rights are further elevated by the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights...

Board of Ed Reviewed Facility Renovations Plans to replace the windows, and enclose the metal work in watertight resurfacing, at Cedar Hill, William Mason and Woodmont are underway.

Cedar Hill, William Mason and Woodmont Elementary Schools all have the same architectural plan. In all cases the gym windows are very energy inefficient, and the external metal work, that encloses the gym, is beginning to deteriorate. Plans to replace the windows, and enclose the metal work in watertight resurfacing, are underway. These renovation projects are three of the many construction initiatives moving forward throughout the district. New entryways are nearly finalized at Lazar and Valley View. Renovated parking lots were installed at Hilldale and Valley View. Valley View’s aging unit ventilators are being replaced. And the MTHS state-of-the-art track and field is complete.

The First 100 Days Dr. Thomas A. Gorman, Superintendent of Montville Township Public Schools.

Superintendent's Column - September 30, 2022 - The First 100 Days - Excitement and pride are at the foundation of our success. With all of us -- BOE Trustees, faculty and staff, students and families, and the community -- working together to build on that foundation, we will help every student reach their fullest potential in a learning environment of the highest quality.
