Weekly Memo Sept. 19-23

Happy Friday, MAS families!  It was a busy but great week here at McAdam Avenue with lots happening already!  We started Cross Country practices with any interested students in grades 3-5, library classes began, we had school pictures taken, we got a start on our Diversity library which supports one of our School Improvement goals and participated in an amazing Becca Schofield Day assembly!  I have attached some pictures for you to see.





Items to note for this week:

  1. Our Indigo Adopt-A-School fundraiser started on Sunday, Sept. 11.  This means that September 11th-October 1st all the money raised for the book love program at the Indigo store that we have been partnered with in Oakville, Ontario will be donated to McAdam Avenue to help update the school library. Here’s the link to donate and to share with family and friends: https://indigoloveofreadingfoundation.givecloud.co/fundraisers/mcadam-avenue-school-fredericton-new-brunswick
