Thank you MAS parents for your support of our New Year’s Fiesta!

We had a full house of new and old friends and made about $3500 to support the PTA programs that benefit our students, teachers and community.  Thank you for a wonderful night!

Something for everyone — STEM enrichment programs, Technology, Art, Magic, Cooking, and more! Children will be supervised by an after-school aide to have a nut-free snack from home and free time from 3:00 to 3:40. Clubs will run from 3:40 to 4:40.  Children can be picked up at 4:40 or be supervised by an after-school aide until 5pm.  More information about dismissal procedures will be available with registration confirmation papers.
