Week at a Glance Nov. 25-Nov. 29

Hello MAS 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.

I want to ‘Thank’ all the parents that came to meet with your child’s teacher. Having open communication between school and home is an essential part of your child’s academic performance and progress. Please know that even though we hold parent teacher interviews twice a year, at anytime if you want an update on your child’s progress contact their teacher

A few reminders-

Wellness Survey- Please complete and return the Wellness survey on Monday, November 25th .The data from the survey about the wellness behaviors of students in our school, will help us to establish an improvement plan and implement strategies for student wellness activities. Our grades 4 and 5 students will also be completing a survey here at school.

Christmas Angel Tree Families- Our Christmas tree and angels will be all set and ready this coming week. We will notify families when it is ready. The tree will be in the front entrance of the school. Please stop by and take an angel or two to support our families this Christmas. When you select an angel please stop by the office and let Roxy know. You can also call and ask Roxy to select an angel for you and place in your child’s homework bag. When you return the gift we ask that it come back wrapped with the angel tag attached to the gift.

Finger Printing- Our wonderful friends at the Lions Club have offered to do Finger Printing safety kits with our students. Permission forms are being sent home.
