Happy Summer!

Hello MAS Families! What a great week at MAS and what a year it has been. WE MADE IT! This week we shared with each other on Teams our class enrichment projects. We got to see our top fundraisers pie Mme McCabe, Ms Bush and Mrs. Burnett in the face. We had a fun filled day of outdoor stations of wet, bouncy, and color. We ended the week with a team meeting and sharing of a slide show of pictures of the year in review- It has been pretty amazing!

It is hard to believe that this is my last email of the school year, but also my last family email at MAS. I want to say ‘THANK YOU’ to all the MAS families for all your support these last four years. Your support for me, for our staff, and for your children in learning has always been appreciated. We took a year like no other, and had one of the best yet!

I have had an amazing experience as Principal here. The students, families, and staff have given me lots of memories to take with me as I move forward. I will never forget this ‘small, but mighty school!’ MAS, the students, and families will always have a place in my heart! Please feel free to stay in touch.  

I want to wish you a safe, healthy, and happy summer!

Important Dates-

August 23- Administrative Assistant back in office

Hello MAS families! It is beyond hard to believe that we are starting the final week of the school year.

But it’s not over yet- we have lots of excitement planned this week!

Hello MAS families. We have had a wonderful week here at MAS! On Wednesday we celebrated student appreciation day. From the mouths of students- IT WAS THE BEST DAY EVER! We started the morning with music playing, greeted by all teachers, and our unicorn. They came in to bagels and yogurt parfaits for breakfast followed by fun active stations outside. You may have noticed your child brought home a stuffed Benny Bear from Kiwanis. They were thrilled to receive these. The morning was perfect and what a special day dedicated to our students. I hope this initiative continues for years to come.

News to Share- I would like to share with you that I have been offered and accepted the Principal position at Forest Hill Elementary School which will begin in the 2021 -2022 school year.

Hello MAS families. Here comes June! The last month of the school year. We have lots of excitement planned to keep students engaged in learning and having fun throughout the month. This week we had some new arrivals to the school. Our grade 1/2s butterflies have emerged! This is very exciting. We will have a release day outside where the students will get to watch them join their natural habitat. Our kindergarten class has been keeping a close eye on the chicken eggs in their room. I think soon we will be adding a few chickens to our school population.

Intergenerational Day in Canada June 1st- Intergenerational Day Canada was initiated in 2010 across Canada as a day to recognize and celebrate the importance of respectful intergenerational relationships across our country.

On June 1st we will walk to York Care and parade around the outside of the building waving to our friends. We will also be making cards to be given to York Care residents.

Kindergarten Orientation- This will continue again this week on Wednesday, June 2nd. Our pre-Ks will be visiting one at a time to see the classroom, take a tour of the school, and moms/dads/guardians will get to meet with Mrs Burnett to answer any questions they may have.
