families! We have had a great week at MAS! Friday ended with a visit from
Constable Bamford sharing with students about the finger print kits, then they
got to visit with the Lions Club members to get their finger prints done.
Students have the information pamphlets with them to bring home. We also
participated today in the Ring a Bell Campaign to raise awareness of youth
mental health. We talked about being connected, feeling good about ourselves,
and then rang a bell for one minute.
