AtoZ Online Directory is LIVE!
The MAS PTA makes this online directory available to families free of charge as a resource to support and promote communication and community among families. The App is now available in the App Store and Google Play! To access the app from your smart phone: iPhones or iPads – Click here to find the school directory app in the App Store. Android devices – click here to find the school directory app in Google Play. Enter your username and password
The AtoZ information verification tool is now closed. However, if something in your family’s information needs to be changed, you can still go in and correct/update your info for the rest of the year! If you have any questions on how to change your information in the online directory, please contact AtoZ support or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, a hard copy directory will be made available for purchase soon. Please doublecheck your information if you have not already done so. Unlike the app, once it’s printed, we can’t change it!
Families as Reading Partners (FRP), with Share a Book!
FRP kicks off on Monday, October 17! Get ready to read together at home and grow the Reading Link Chain – if the chain reaches the Treasure Chest at our Fall Pirate Book Fair, our Principal and Assistant Principal will dress up as PIRATES for Family Book Fair Day on Wednesday, October 26 (and maybe your teacher will too)! Look for materials with more information to come home in backpacks the week of October 11.
Also back this year as part of FRP – Share a Book! Students, take a photo of you sharing a book with a parent or caregiver and send it to email@example.com. We’ll hang the photos in the hallways below our Reading Links Chain as we celebrate reading together. Sharing a book can be a parent or caregiver reading to a child (or vice versa!), or children and parents reading their own books but sitting together. Please include the names of the student and the family member they are reading with in the email sent with the photo. Hard copy photos can also be dropped in the PTA drawers in the office.
Join the PTA!
Help support all the activities and events that the PTA offers: online family director, after school clubs, STEM family nights, book fairs, Crunchy Carnival, Bike Rally, Cultural Arts programs for all grades and much, much more!

- Free Babysitting at Back to School Nights 9/19 & 9/26
