Weekly Memo November 7-11

Happy Friday, MAS families! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween week! We want to send a HUGE thank you to the volunteers who made our Halloween Howl a success last Friday, as well as those who sent in donations (money or otherwise). We truly are the best school community. We met with our Student Leaders in grades 3-5 this week and are so impressed with the initiative and excitement they are showing about making MAS a better place! Some initiatives are beginning next week such as filling food baskets in classrooms, delivering milk & hot lunch and helping out on the playground. We will discuss student clubs and a few other activities when we get settled with these first few ‘jobs’. Please see the attached picture of two eager students with their new Peer Leader vests on!
