Week at a Glance May 6-10

Hello MAS Families. It has been a great week at MAS. I would like to Congratulate our grade 4/5 students, choir, and our student pianist Jennifer, for their wonderful performance at Music Festival. The Adjudicators notes were nothing but praises. Great Job! 

'May the Math be With You'- Family Math Night will be hosted on May 15th starting at 6:00pm. The night will consist of a short introduction from our district Math Leads. We will then have classrooms set up with math take aways. Some rooms will be everyday ideas to incorporate math into your home and another will be math games make and takes per grade level. At the make and take room you will be able to make and play games to take away with you. This will be a great opportunity for parents to gain a better understanding of the math curriculum and ways to help support your child at home.
