Week at a Glance Jan. 21-25 , 2019

Hello MAS Families! It has been a cold, but great week at MAS. This week we started our Breakfast program and it was wonderful to have 45 students attend. We are really looking forward to this for the remainder of the school year.  We also had a visit today from Mike Richard who made a generous donation of $6000 to our school library and memorial award. It will be exciting time for students in helping purchase books to replenish our current school library.

Reminders:

Safe Arrival New System- We are piloting a new safe arrival program. Students are bringing home an important information notice today that explains the safe arrival program and changes that are being made.  One important change to note, that starting on Monday- If your child will be absent from school the number to call is 1-833-294-4838.  There is also an app that can be downloaded onto a mobile device. If you do not use the new system to call in and report student absence, you will receive a phone call from the automated system.

K-2 Parent Forum- I am still looking for a mixed group of K-2 parents that would be willing to meet the evening (6pm) of January 28th with our Extended day researcher. He is looking to speak to parents and get your input and feedback on the extra hour. Please email or call the school if you are interested.

Breakfast Program-  Tuesday- scrambled eggs and toast. When the students arrive at school, if they wish to come have breakfast, please remind them to come in our grade 3-5 door. We will take off our boots, put our coats and book bags in classroom then head down to the gymnasium to enjoy breakfast together. When the bell rings and once students are finished they will head up to class to start their day with full bellies. If you have any questions or would like to help out, please contact Helga (helgarennke@gmail.com) or Mrs. Burnett at the school.

Ringette Field Trip Grades 3-5- Fredericton is hosting the 2019 Atlantic Ringette Championships from January 25th to 27th at the Willie O’Ree Arena.  As part of this event they have invited our grade 3-5 students to attend the tournament on Friday, January 25.  Students will attend opening ceremonies leaving the school at 11:30am and returning at 1:30pm. We will have lunch before we leave and a snack upon return.

Hello MAS Families! We have had a great first week back to school with lots of snow to play in. Everyone was excited to be back with lots of smiling faces around the building. We ended the week with a great Happy New Year pancake breakfast and oranges. Thank you to our teachers/EAs for coming in early to prepare the pancakes for our students.

This was our last Leo Hayes clubs for a bit as the high school students switch semesters. We will start these back up in mid February.

Hello MAS families! I want to say a BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all our students for putting on two wonderful Christmas concerts this past week. They did such a great job and we are all so proud them. We have one week left before Christmas break with some extra special activities happening throughout the week.

A few reminders:

Christmas Angel Tree- Thank you to our school community for being so kind and generous during the holiday season. Every angel has been taken off the tree. When you return the gift, we ask that it come back wrapped with the angel tree tag attached to the gift. Please have wrapped gifts back to the school no later than December 20th.

Tots and Taters- Reminder there is NO hot lunch orders this week on Tuesday and Friday. Please be sure to send a lunch with your child if they normally order.

Santa's Little Helper- Back orders should be in early next week. We will get them out to you as soon as they arrive.

Milk Forms- Reminder milk forms are due back on Wednesday. This form gives milk buyers the option to change to chocolate milk (no charge) and for those that DO NOT currently get milk to sign up. We will begin ordering chocolate milk in January.

MAS Christmas Caroling- Reminder on Tuesday December 18th we are inviting students and parents back to the school to spread some Christmas cheer around the neighborhood. We will meet here at 6pm and break into groups to go caroling. We will then return to the school around 7pm for hot chocolate and cookies. Feel free to wear a Christmas hat.

MAS Clothing- Our clothing order has arrived. We will be sending orders home on Monday. If the order is a gift, please be sure your child's teacher knows.
