Good morning, MAS families. I hope everyone has had a great week so far. The
snow this week has certainly upped the excitement here at school!
Molly Brown, our District First Nations teacher, was here on Monday to share
Wolastoquey teachings with each class. We are very grateful that she came to
spend the day with us!
Yesterday, 3 of our classes visited Chapters to help choose books for our
school library! It was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to fill carts
full of books all in one day! We look forward to getting these books sorted and
ready for sign-out in our library. I heard that the classes who stayed at
school did a "Rule the School" and when we returned, they were
playing games in the hallway!
Next week is “Diversity and Respect” Week. Please see the attached outline
of what will be happening daily. Our Student Leaders are excited to help us
with the initiatives for this week. They've helped put up posters and will read
books to each class! We have been discussing diversity a lot this year as it is
one of our School Improvement goals, so we are really looking forward to the
Respect and Diversity Week.docx
