It has been another great week at MAS! I would like to send a big
THANK YOU to our parent volunteers- Amy, Helga, Phil, Jeremy, Terry, and Matt
for taking time last Saturday to build our school a ‘GAGA’ pit and for also
cleaning up our front flower beds and garden. The students have had a blast all
week enjoying the gaga pit and playing with friends. We are a small school, but
mighty and support from our parent community is one of the reasons.
A few reminders:
Reminder that we are still looking for student fees. The cost this year is $45.
This can be paid online or at school. Please contact the school to make
Apple Picking Field Trip- Apple
picking field trip is on Thursday, September 26th. Students are
asked to dress for the weather and to be sure to bring a picnic lunch. We will
be travelling by bus to Riverview Orchard. Reminder the cost of the trip is $4
per student. I would like to thank our home and school for covering the
remainder of the fee.
School Pictures- As you are aware this year we
are doing school photos with LifeTouch. The
individual student proofs will arrive in the next 5-7 days. You are then able
to purchase online or with the paper order form.
Breakfast program is on Tuesday, September 24th. This week students will be
having bagels and fruit. All students are welcome. When they arrive on the
playground they come right inside the grade 2-5 door and come downstairs to the
gymnasium to enjoy breakfast with friends. If arriving close to bell
students will take the breakfast back to classroom.
Terry Fox Walk/Run- On Friday
afternoon we will be holding our Terry Fox walk/run on the school field.
Students are encouraged to donate $2 towards the cause. All students will
receive a terry fox tattoo.
Home and School and PSSC
Meetings- We will be holding our first meetings of the school year. Home
and School is at 6pm and PSSC follows at 7pm. We encourage all parents to come
