Week at a Glance Oct 29-Nov 2

Hello MAS families! I apologize with the late email for the Week at a Glance, but with the excitement of the Halloween Howl we forgot to push send. 

I want to say a BIG "THANK YOU" to all our amazing parent, staff and teen volunteers for making the Halloween Howl on Friday night a Spooktacular event! It was a wonderful night filled with lots of fun and laughter. Thank you also to the families for coming out and supporting our school community.  We hope you enjoyed the evening. 
 
This week at MAS we start the week with a field trip to the Playhouse to see Robinson Crusoe and Friday. This trip was sponsored by a wonderful grant program the Playhouse offers schools. Last year we applied for this grant and were successful recipients. The grants are donations secured by the playhouse from local businesses. We are very grateful for this opportunity and experience.
 
Thank you to the families that participated in our Santa's Little Helper fundraiser. Monies raised from this will go towards helping to fund our Christmas Dinner trip to Moco and our Christmas shopping spree. Out total funds raised yet has not been confirmed, but when that comes in I will announce.
