Weekly Memo Nov. 28-Dec. 2

Good afternoon, families. I hope everyone had a wonderful week! We had a great week here at MAS celebrating Diversity and Respect Week! This week used to be referred to as “Anti-Bullying” week, but we have broadened the learning and discussions beyond just anti-bullying in the past few years. Monday, we played whole-school “Respect” Bingo. Congratulations to Mrs. Belyea’s class for winning and on your prizes! Tuesday, a few of our Student Leaders did read alouds around diversity in each classroom and facilitated discussions about the content in the books. We are very proud of the messages they had for all of our students! Wednesday was Identity Day! Students loved sharing things with their classmates to show how they are unique and special. Thursday, we had our November Star Student assembly. Our school mascot, Star, even made an appearance! Mrs. LeBlanc, school counselor, spoke to the students about using our WITS to solve problems, and 2 star student awards were handed out for each class. Congratulations to all! Today, we will have a read aloud with Mrs. Jordan on Teams and will have a school discussion about diversity.
