Week at a Glance June 3-7

Hello MAS Families! It has been a BUSY week at MAS. We started the week with a great morning of track and field fun for our grades 3-5 students. Our K-2 students took a trip to the downtown public library. They came back very excited to share about their adventure and about the books they brought back.  Our grade 4/5 class participated in their last swimming class then enjoyed a special visit to Nasis Middle school. Our grade 5s got to experience the cafeteria, while the grade 4 students visited the public library there.  Library visits are a wonderful way to foster a love of reading in your child.  We ended the week with a wonderful volunteer breakfast and STAR student assembly.  

We now move into June. It is truly hard to believe we are at the last month of the school year. Time flies when you have fun!!!

We will be leaving MAS at 8:30am and returning at approximately 1:30pm.
