families! This has been an exciting week at MAS. On Wednesday we had an arcade
in the gymnasium with tickets and prizes. Our grades 4 and 5 students created
some wonderful and innovative arcade games for other students to play. Also
this week we were provided with a wonderful recess snack from our friends at
York Care Centre. They will continue to do this every third Wednesday
throughout the year. Our grades K-3 had a visit from our local Fire department
to discuss fire safety.
