Week at a Glance April 12-16

Hello MAS Families! It has been a great week at MAS and it looks like the snow is all gone from the playground- YAY sunshine!

Thank you to all that were able to join our virtual Family Bedtime Story. After reading the book, families were challenged to create a piece of art to host our very own “Family Art Show”. We ask that you create a piece of art to be displayed in our main hallway. Students can bring the art to school starting on Monday and we will fill our hallway with art from the heart.

Reminders-

No School- There is no school on Wednesday, April 14th.  This is parent teacher interview day and PL for teachers. Our teachers will be participating in professional learning with Neill Squires association. We will be learning about accessing technology apps/programs for inclusive learning for all students. They will share with us technology that can help enhance student learning and provide support to meet various learning needs.

Parent Teacher interviews- If you have not done so, please book your parent teacher interview through the link provided. It is important that at this time of year we continue to stay informed about your child’s academic progress. If you are unable to make any of the scheduled times, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher to make arrangements for an alternate time. We really look forward to being able to meet and share your child’s academic progress with you.

Parent Virtual Presentation- We have invited our District Child and Youth team to talk with our parents about children’s fears and anxiety that have developed this year due to covid. They will share ideas of how to talk with your child and strategies and ways for you to support. Please stay tuned for a date.

Week at a Glance April 6-9

Hello MAS Families. No April fools joke- today is the last day of the school week!  We have had a great week at MAS!  The students all got to meet my youngest puppy- Dahlia. She is an 11 week old Red Pine Golden Retriever. She has already exceeded her expectations of being in the school and interacting with students already. She has been so good with the children, that we all have been amazed.  She greeted a few as they entered through the front door and as soon as they saw her you could see the biggest smiles under those masks!

Reminders-

Fundraiser- Thank you again to all that supported our ‘Bath Shack’ Fundraiser. All orders went home this week. The school raised close to $500 to support student learning.

Report Cards and Parent Teacher interviews- Report Cards went home on Wednesday, March 31st. I am very proud of all the hard work students and staff have done this term. Please book your parent teacher interview through the link provided if you have not done so. If you are unable to make any of the scheduled times, please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher to make arrangements for an alternate time. We really look forward to being able to meet and share your child’s academic progress with you.

Hello MAS Families. We have had a wonderful week back to school. I can’t tell you how great it truly was to walk into classrooms and see those smiling faces again!

Spring Weather- As the weather begins to warm up (YAY!) our playground becomes quite wet. Please be sure to be sending in extra clothing with your child in case they are wet from outdoor play. It is also a good idea to send in extra mittens. With snow still on the ground we encourage students to still wear snow pants and winter coats. We do allow as they are out running and playing to unzip their coat if they get hot, but not to take coats off.

Information Items-

Spring Fundraiser- Our Spring fundraiser is underway. Forms were sent home Monday, March 8th. This fundraiser is again a local business- The Bath Shack. We appreciate all your support in raising funds to support student learning initiatives.
