It has been another great week at MAS. This week we received
a cheque from the Nashwaaksis Y’s Men club for funding towards our Gaga Pit and
Breakfast program. This was greatly appreciated. We would like to say
“Congratulations” to our Cross Country Runners! They have worked very hard
this season and did a wonderful job at the final race. We are very proud of you
here at MAS and you should be very proud of yourselves.
A few reminders:
Thanksgiving- No School on Monday.
School Pictures- Orders were due on Thursday,
October 10th. Retakes will be held Wednesday, October 16th. Order forms for Retakes are asked to be
