Happy Summer!

Happy first day of summer! We ended our school year with a week of excitement. We hope you enjoyed Wednesday's showcase and family BBQ. On Thursday we enjoyed our grade 5 promotion ceremony. They are all set for middle school and we wish them all the best. We also celebrated our kindergarten class on Thursday afternoon.  Friday the last day of school ended with a day of FUN- we held a MAS talent show where our talented students entertained their peers, Ms Davis and myself took some whip cream pies to the face from our top three jump rope for heart fundraisers, we had multi age stations set up where students had choice of many fun activities like coding, art, music, PE, lego, fort building and more. We ended the day with a whole school glow bracelet dance party. 

I want to take this opportunity to THANK YOU the families of MAS, Home & School, and PSSC for your ongoing and continuous support. MAS is a small, but mighty school and that is because of our wonderful families that contribute to it daily and work closely with our staff to help your child grow. 

A few reminders for fall-

School Supplies- Supply lists were sent home in report cards. To pay student fees online schoolcash will open on August 1, 2019. 

Transfer of Schools- If your child will be changing elementary schools in the fall, it is important that you come visit us in the next two days to fill out a transfer form so we can be sure your child's information is at the receiving school for September. 

First day of School- Our first day of school will be Tuesday, September 3rd. 

Administration return to work- Mrs. Yerxa and myself will be back in office on August 19th if you have any questions. 

Community Garden- to those that offered to help over the summer, I will be in touch to set up a schedule. 

Have a fun and safe summer. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Week at a Glance June 17-21

Hello MAS Families! Here we are heading into our last week of school. This past week we had an amazing whole school field trip to Green Hill Lake Camp. Students went kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, made s'mores, tried archery, go carting, and climbing. It was a great day and the weather was amazing. This week we also held a special evening for our grade 5 students.  It was a great night with staff and students. We sure will miss this group as they head off to middle school! 

Reminders:

MAS Color Splash Dash- Thank you to all of our Color Dash participants for supporting our fundraising event. It was very successful event raising approximately $2430. This money will be used to cover the cost of our Green Hill Lake trip and our year end family picnic and also 10% of our funds raised goes to the Feed the Lions program. I would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to our home and school for supporting this event and to Amanda and Helga who spent many many hours planning and organizing the event. Our little school couldn't offer the wonderful enrichment activities we do for our students without this support. Thank you!

Breakfast Program- Tuesday (June 18, 2019) - Breakfast will be cereal and fruit smoothies. 

Creative Cluster Showcase and Family BBQ- Reminder our showcase and Family BBQ is on Wednesday, June 19th.  Families are invited to school for 11:15am to visit your child's Creative Cluster to share in their celebration and learning. After the showcase we invite you to join us on the back playground for a BBQ that will be kindly provided by our MAS Home and School. Everyone is invited and it is free of charge! If you plan on attending, please complete the MonkeySurvey to indicate your attendance and required amount of hot dogs and drinks for your family by Monday, June 17th.  We hope you are able to join!

Our grade 5s got to experience the cafeteria, while the grade 4 students visited the public library there.  Library visits are a wonderful way to foster a love of reading in your child.  We ended the week with a wonderful volunteer breakfast and STAR student assembly.
