Week at a Glance- October 23-27, 2017

This week students participated in safe schools week. We planned and practiced ways to be safe at school and prepared ourselves in case of emergencies. Please talk with your child about these practices, so they can share with you what they learned.

The weather has been holding up nicely for us and we have enjoyed some gorgeous afternoons. However, please keep in mind that most mornings are cool and to be sure your child is dressed appropriately.

Reminder PL day- This week we have a Professional Learning day on Tuesday. School will dismiss at 11:00am. Please be sure your child’s afterschool care is aware of the changes.

Picture Retakes- Picture retakes are on Wednesday, October 25th.

Movie Night- Friday will be a pajama day for all followed by a movie, popcorn, and pizza afterschool in the gymnasium if your child chooses to participate. This year our Home and School has purchased a licence to show movies as part of fundraising initiatives. We will have a few more movie events as the year goes on. This movie event is for students, but we will have family movie events also where everyone is invited to join. Funds raised at these events will go towards school initiatives in numeracy, literacy, and enrichment. Cost of this movie event is $10- this includes popcorn, drink, pizza, and a movie. Grades K-2 can stay right here after school from 2-3pm and they will participate in games, activities, in the school library with parent volunteers. When grades 3-5 dismiss we will all meet in the gymnasium for the movie. We are really looking forward to this fun evening!

Parent Volunteers- We are looking for a few parent volunteers from 2-3:15pm on Friday, October 27th to help with our K-2s for afterschool before the movie. If you are available and willing, please contact the school.

Chapters Fundraiser- We will be asking for a few parent and student volunteers to greet customers at Chapters on November 1st and ask them to mention McAdam Avenue upon check out. A link will be sent home for you to sign up to help out. Chapters will then donate a portion of their sales that evening to MAS. So please invite friends and families to do their shopping at Chapters on November 1st from 6-9pm.

We had a great short week here at MAS! Our cross country runners did a great job this season and had great runs on Wednesday at the district meet. Very proud of their hard work and participation. They were great representatives of MAS. Mrs. Coes’ Grade ¾ class walked to York Care to kick off our partnership with the home. We plan this year to involve all grade levels and share in many new activities with the residents. We are very excited!

This coming week is ‘Safe Schools Week’. This is our opportunity to teach your child what to do in emergency situations, so that in the event of an emergency we are prepared. Your child will participate in emergency practice events throughout the week, such as fire drills, lock down, site evacuation, and bus evacuation.  We will also have the fire department here to give a presentation to the whole school. Please throughout the week talk to your child about school safety and its importance.

Student Hunger Program- The Fredericton Community kitchen Student Hunger program this year is sponsoring students at our school for lunch. This year they received a new building and will be having their Grand Opening on Saturday, October 14th at 9:30am. We invite any of our families to join in the opening ceremony to show our appreciation for their support. Hope to see you there!

Home and School Meeting- Our home and school will be meeting on Monday October 16th at 6:00pm. Anyone is welcome to join and attend.

Hot Lunch- This week we will have hot lunch on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Cold Weather- Brrrr….the mornings are getting colder. Many students are still arriving in flip flops, shorts, no jackets, etc. Please be sure your child comes dressed appropriately for the morning temperatures. It’s a good idea to dress them in layers, that way as it warms up throughout the day they can take the layers off.

It was a beautiful day with lots of fun!  On Friday, we met up with our learning buddies and together made yummy apple crisp using our apples from the Orchard. We got to share our treat during lunch time. There are some great photos taken of our students and shown on our twitter feed. If you are not already following, please do so- @AveMcadam.
