Parent Group Outings A Big Success

MAP outing at Phantom Tollbooth

Posted on February 08, 2019 by Matt Geske

The newly formed parent group, Mason Academy Parents (aka MAP), coordinated two family outings recently to events at Mason’s Center for the Arts: a production of The Phantom Tollbooth on January 27th and a Fairfax Symphony concert on February 2nd. Participants and their family members enjoyed discounted tickets and special pre-performance receptions.

One of the MAP leaders, Jennifer Gibson, played a key role in arranging the logistics of the outings. “I am thrilled with our turnout for the first ever MAP family outings!” she exclaimed. “People were able to connect with each other and enjoy some fabulous productions right here at Mason. This captures the spirit of our group. I look forward to planning more outings in the future!”

“I’m so grateful to MAP for taking the initiative and organizing these great events,” said Academy Executive Director Libby Curtis. “I love seeing the Academy families together enjoying great conversation, food, and performances! This is a great addition for our community and adds so much to the life of the Academy.”

Along with organized family outings, MAP also provides Academy event support such as music recital and theater showcase assistance, and future plans include community-building projects.
