We are very proud of you here at MAS and you should be very proud of yourselves.

What a great day we had at the Apple Orchard on Thursday!  It was sunny and cool which made for perfect apple picking. The students had a wonderful time learning about apple history, how to tell when an apple is ready, exploring the orchard, picking and eating apples, getting lost in the corn maze, enjoying a picnic lunch and playing on the playground. We also had a tasty apple treat for snack today made by our great grade 5 students using the apples we picked!

Today we also remembered Terry Fox and shared in learning. Thank you to everyone that contributed to our Terry Fox walk!
