May 27th was the last day for Mrs. Santos. Although Mason wanted her to teach choir for years and years to come, she chose to retire and move onto other things. One of her students, Rachel Snow, said, “I really miss her positive energy. She was like a second mom to me; she made us feel like we were part of her family.” Mason really appreciates Mrs. Santos’ hard work and dedication towards the musical program. New choir instructor, Jason Mckee, has big aspirations and goals for this years choirs.
