News & Reminders


What an exciting first week of school - though different, it was nice to 'see' teachers and friends again!  A special thank you to all the MAS teachers, staff and administrators for all they did leading up to these first days of school. 

First PTA Meeting - Tuesday - with Ms. McGuire and Mr. Janowitz
Our first PTA Meeting will be held this Tuesday, September 15th, via Zoom.  Ms. McGuire and Mr. Janowitz will be joining us, to answer questions.  Zoom link for the meeting will be sent prior to Tuesday evening.  All MAS families are invited to join our meetings, as all families are members of the MAS PTA.

Learn More about the PTA
To learn about us, please visit our PTA webpage. Though events and happenings will look a little different this year, we will of course look to our parents and guardians for their involvement in many ways throughout the year.  Having paid members is what allows PTA to operate as a non-profit child advocacy organization. We remain committed to our purpose as the MAS PTA, and believe, as always, that all of our MAS families are an essential part of what makes MAS so special, and that we will come together with the teachers and administration this year to create this fun, inclusive, safe, welcoming and supportive community that is MAS. 

Virtual Dads / Special Adult Take Your Child to School - Thursday 6:00 pm
All dads and special adults are invited! Guest speakers will include MAS dad Miguel Sanchez, as well as Thabiti Boone, an inspirational public figure, speaker, college basketball Hall of Famer, author, leader, minister and humanitarian. He is a strong supporter for President Obama White House Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative.  See flyer for Zoom information
