Families! It has been a great week at MAS. On Wednesday we celebrated
World Read Aloud Day. Teachers switched classrooms and read their favorite read
aloud to a different class. It was a great opportunity to share the love of
reading at the school.
Appreciation Week- This
coming week I would like to recognize our hard working staff- Admin Assistant,
Teachers, Custodian, Educational Assistants, EAL teacher, and Librarian. This
week is staff appreciation week, but we appreciate all they do each and every
day. Our staff plays a critical role in shaping your child. They are kind,
patient, dedicated, hard-working, fun, and love what they do. Being a small
staff our team steps up in many ways to be sure your child’s learning experience
here at MAS is memorable and fun. If you see a staff member this week, or want
to send them a note and let them know what you appreciate about them.
Shirt Day- Thank
you to all the families that purchased Pink shirts. The order goes in Monday
morning and we will send tshirts home as soon as they arrive.
Every Friday! Students in grades k-5 are invited to be dropped off
between 7:20-7:30am (Students will NOT be allowed to attend if arriving
after 7:30am). Students will enter front doors and go directly to classroom and
put on indoor sneakers, then head down to gymnasium.
