Weekly Memo - Feb. 6-10

Good afternoon MAS families!  

It’s been a very cold week here at MAS!  We snuck outside briefly this morning during the drop off recess, however the temp has fallen, and we are back indoors.  I know that it’s supposed to get SUPER COLD overnight tonight and into tomorrow, so I hope that you all get a chance to hunker down and stay warm!  

This week, we welcomed Ms. Boone to our team! As well, our school enjoyed whole school bingo, the 4/5 class switched to their English block and enjoyed a bilingual learning outing to Cora’s and the Sports Hall of Fame. All classes began learning about kindness, and we celebrated students during our Star Student assembly. There has been so much quality learning taking place!

1.    PSSC has kindly purchased some books that families can sign out. Some are specifically for parents/guardians, and some are books parents can share with their children to learn about all kinds of diversity, SEL topics and/or differences.

6.      February is Black History Month and we will be celebrating this by discussing citizens of the black community, and historical events surrounding black history, every day during morning announcements, and by placing information points on our school bulletin boards. We will also be visiting NMS for a presentation, on February 17th  

7.      In conjunction with NMS, we have changed when we will be delivering popcorn to our students.  Moving forward, it will be delivered to students on the last Thursday of the month. 

8.      You may be aware that EECD is looking to make changes to the French Immersion program beginning this September.  They shared some information with parents in an email sent out to you on Dec. 15th and they held public consultation sessions.  You may provide feedback through an EECD survey which you can access here: https://www.narrativeresearchsurveys.ca/S2/87/1187849/ 

Thank you for your continued support!
