Week at a Glance June 17-21

Hello MAS Families! Here we are heading into our last week of school. This past week we had an amazing whole school field trip to Green Hill Lake Camp. Students went kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, made s'mores, tried archery, go carting, and climbing. It was a great day and the weather was amazing. This week we also held a special evening for our grade 5 students.  It was a great night with staff and students. We sure will miss this group as they head off to middle school! 


MAS Color Splash Dash- Thank you to all of our Color Dash participants for supporting our fundraising event. It was very successful event raising approximately $2430. This money will be used to cover the cost of our Green Hill Lake trip and our year end family picnic and also 10% of our funds raised goes to the Feed the Lions program. I would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to our home and school for supporting this event and to Amanda and Helga who spent many many hours planning and organizing the event. Our little school couldn't offer the wonderful enrichment activities we do for our students without this support. Thank you!

Breakfast Program- Tuesday (June 18, 2019) - Breakfast will be cereal and fruit smoothies. 

Creative Cluster Showcase and Family BBQ- Reminder our showcase and Family BBQ is on Wednesday, June 19th.  Families are invited to school for 11:15am to visit your child's Creative Cluster to share in their celebration and learning. After the showcase we invite you to join us on the back playground for a BBQ that will be kindly provided by our MAS Home and School. Everyone is invited and it is free of charge! If you plan on attending, please complete the MonkeySurvey to indicate your attendance and required amount of hot dogs and drinks for your family by Monday, June 17th.  We hope you are able to join! 


Grade 5 Celebration- We will be celebrating our Grade 5 students on Thursday, June 20th at 10:30am. Parents and family of the grade 5 students are invited to the event. Students will receive certificates, hear from a previous student about middle school, share a song, and there will be academic awards in literacy (Jackie Clark Memorial award), Numeracy, Physical Education, and Music. There will be cake and drinks for all following the celebration. 

Community Garden- Our community garden is almost done and we are still looking for families that would be willing to volunteer a night or two over the summer to help tend to the garden. If you are willing to help out or would like more info please call Roxy in the office 453-5422.
