Week at a Glance Feb 11-15

Hello MAS Families! We have had an exciting week of learning at MAS. On Tuesday we were joined by David Wang who shared the meaning of the Chinese New Year with our students. We then all shared in a Chinese lunch together in the gymnasium. The smiles, the conversations, eating with friends, and new learning made for a wonderful celebration at our school. 

On Thursday Coach Mac and four UNB players came to visit. Coach Mac shared and encouraged students to always try their best, and to work hard. Students have been invited to watch the UNB game this coming Saturday. It is Northside schools night. Staff and family will be there and we look forward to seeing many of you! 


Staff Appreciation Week- This coming week I would like to recognize our Staff. This week is staff appreciation week, but we appreciate all they do each and every day. Our staff play a critical role in shaping your child. They are kind, patient, dedicated, hard-working, fun, and love what they do. Being a small staff our team steps up in many ways to be sure your child's learning experience at MAS is memorable and fun. If you see a staff member this week, feel free to let them know what you appreciate about them. 

Northside School Hockey Night- Our Northside school night with UNB hockey is Saturday, Feb. 9th. A notice was sent home with information in regards to purchasing tickets at the box office. Hope you can make it!

Breakfast Program- Tuesday - This Tuesday will be bagels and fruit.  When the students arrive at school, if they wish to come have breakfast, please remind them to come in our grade 3-5 door. We will take off our boots, put our coats and book bags in classroom then head down to the gymnasium to enjoy breakfast together. When the bell rings and once students are finished they will head up to class to start their day with full bellies.

Skating- We will be doing a whole school skating trip to Willie O'Ree on March 1st. Permission slips were due on February 8th. If you have not done so please return the forms as soon as possible. This will help us be sure all students have skates and helmets as needed. 

Valentine's Day- Each class will be treated to fruit and vegetable trays for snack time.
