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
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!
