Week at a Glance - May 29-June 2

Good afternoon and Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. I was writing "June 2" in the subject of this email and thinking to myself, "HOW did that happen?" It is so hard to believe we are into June next week! We had our May Student Voice meeting on Tuesday; please see the students' ideas below! On Wednesday, we hosted our Welcome to Kindergarten event at NMS and got to meet our students who will be starting school next year. It was a wonderful afternoon and we can't wait to welcome our new students in the fall! Also on Wednesday, we held a Cultural Learning Day at MAS! Each class chose a country to learn about and then set up stations, activities, posters and videos to teach the other classes about their country. We hope your child told you some of the things they learned! Please see a few photos below. Yesterday, we held our May Star Student assembly and Mrs. LeBlanc discussed how families are all different and special. Thank you to those of you who sent in pictures of your family - the kids were delighted to see themselves and their friends up on the screen! Students in grades 3-5 did a virtual 'field trip' to Ducks Unlimited due to the weather on Thursday.

Important to note:

-I wanted to let you know that District and EECD reached out this week, and there will be representatives at the Family BBQ at NMS on June 7 to display renderings and answer questions about the new school.

-We are still looking for volunteers for our Family BBQ & Fun night at NMS on June 7 from 5:30-7! Here is the link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C084DA5AF2AABFCC43-year. As well, we are looking for donations for this event! If you would like to donate juice boxes or freezies, please drop them off to our school by May 31. 

-I have reached out to District transportation about busing for next year to Nashwaaksis Memorial. The transportation manager stated that all students that live in the MAS boundary will be bused to NMS next year. The school bus information won’t be visible online until mid-August but they are planning to use the same stops that the French immersion students who currently attend NMS are using.

-Here is the poster for the MAS Open House/Reunion on June 14. Please feel free to share! reunion poster.jpg 

It looks like it is going to be a beautiful weekend and I hope you all enjoy every second of it!
