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.
