Week at a Glance Feb 25 -March 1

Hello MAS Families! We have had lots of fun learning take place this week. Grades K-4 had a visit to the superstore to learn about healthy foods, the star program on labels, about lobsters, and then returned to school to make a snack for our entire school. Our k-2s made us delicious muffins and our grade 3/4s made us yummy smoothies. Next week our grade 4/5 class will be going to the Superstore. 

We are also excited for a 'Seusstastic' week this coming week! And we will also be celebrating the 100th day of school, and Pink Shirt day in support of Anti-bullying. 


Pink Shirt day- Wednesday, February 27th is Pink Shirt day. Students are encouraged to wear pink shirts to show their support to anti-bullying. This day was inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia and is now intended to raise awareness and support for anti-bullying programs.

Breakfast Program- Tuesday - This Tuesday will be cereal with fruit smoothies.  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- On March 1st we will be going skating. The location has changed- we will now be at York Arena. K-2s skate 9-10am and 3-5s skate 10-11am. Parents are welcome to join us at the arena.
