Week at a Glance May 13-17

Hello MAS Families!! We have had a fun week at MAS from some students mixing up slime and the whole school learning about Heart Health. 

On Monday our Multi-age group went to York Care with their Leo Hayes buddies. They got to experiment in making slime and having a gooey fun mess with the residents. 

On Tuesday Jump Rope for Heart was here to kick off our fundraising for Heart and Stroke foundation. They shared important information with students about staying active and healthy. 

May the Math be With You- Family Math Night will be hosted this Wednesday, May 15th starting at 6:00pm. We will begin the night in the gymnasium with a short introduction from our district Math Leads. We will then have classrooms set up with math take aways. Some rooms will be everyday ideas to incorporate math into your home and another will be math games make and takes per grade level. At the make and take room you will be able to make and play games to take away with you. This will be a great opportunity for parents to gain a better understanding of the math curriculum and ways to help support your child at home. We hope to see you there! 


No School- Reminder there is no school on Monday, May 13. This is teacher NBTA branch meeting day. 

Breakfast Program- Tuesday (May 14, 2019) - Breakfast will be bagels and fruit or fruit smoothies.

Track and Field Gr 3-5- We are still looking for any parents that are interested and willing to help volunteer for track and field day at Nasis Middle school for our grade 3-5s on May 27 (rain day May 28). Please let me know if you can help out. 

Bike Rodeo- We will be hosting another bike rodeo for our students on Wednesday, May 22 at 1:30pm. Students are invited back to school with their bikes. The bike rodeo will take place in the tennis courts. Fredericton City Police will be here to share bike safety and check bikes over. There will be stations set up for students to practice bike safety. This is lots of fun and learning and the event lasts about 45 minutes. 

Drama and Spring Concert- On June 5th at 10:30am we will be having our Drama/Spring Concert. Parents are invited to join us to see our drama students perform "Jillian Jiggs", along with hearing our k-5 classes take the stage to share a song. We look forward to seeing you here! 

Weather- Please be sure your child is coming dressed for the spring weather- warm, cold, and wet! Even on days that it may be sprinkling, we will try and get out and get fresh air.
