Week at a Glance Feb 24-28

Hello MAS Families!  Hard to believe we are already in the last week of February! I want to ‘Thank’ all the families that attended our Family Literacy Night on Wednesday. There was lots of great information and ideas shared to support a love of reading at home. This coming week is our winter fun “Bunch of Munsch” week. Be sure to check each day the fun planned.


Pink Shirt Day- Thank you to all the families that purchased Pink shirts. They will be arriving here at school on Monday, February 24th.

Sunshine Program-  Every Friday! Students in grades k-5 are invited to be dropped off between 7:20-7:30am (Students will NOT be allowed to attend if arriving after 7:30am). Students will enter front doors and go directly to classroom and put on indoor sneakers, then head down to gymnasium.
