Waste-Free Lunch Day on 22 April

MSA would like to move toward becoming a waste-free school. One of the biggest generators of waste at the school occurs over the snack and lunch breaks.

On Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, we will be awarding house points and merit points for every student who participates in our school-wide Waste-Free Lunch Day. Please see the C&G attachments online for more information about this initiative.

Supplies Needed for Kindergarten/Early Learning

The MSA Kindergarten and the Early Learning Program classes would like to stock our creative resource bank with many interesting items. These are outlined in the attached C&G document. Many thanks for your help!
