Week at a Glance May 20-24

Hello MAS Families!! Another exciting week here at MAS.  On Wednesday students enjoyed dancing and singing along with Art Richard at Royal Road to songs in French and in English. Later that evening we had many families come back to our Family Math Night. I want to thank those that were able to attend and hopefully you found the night and resources very informative and helpful for math learning at home.  Also Wednesday night, our Grade 4/5 class and Choir were awarded the "Best Non-Competitive Entry" at music festival this year. We received a nice plaque to display in the school. Congratulations!

Thursday we started our student chosen Creative Clusters. Students are already excited to showcase in June what they will be learning about during this enrichment time.
