MSA Comings & Goings
Friday, September 14, 2018
On Monday, September 17th 2018, parents will receive an invite via email to Edsby, our school's new learning management system. While the software is user-friendly, we anticipate that some parents may need additional support. Therefore, we will be offering an “Introduction to Edsby Parent Help Session” on Thursday, September 20th from 4:30-5:30 pm, in the Media Lab. To reserve your space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
ELEMENTARY MORNING DROP-OFF
The students are settling well into their new classes. Now that the students have established their routines, we would like to ask parents and relatives to encourage greater independence at line up time in the morning. Once the bell rings, we would like to ask family members to encourage the students to independently gather their belongings and go with their class. Prolonged goodbyes are making it difficult for the children to settle. Thank you for your support!

Stall Managers Need!
Plinko (both manager & co-manager)and someone to train alongside the Refreshments Food Manager with the aim to take over in two years. We also still need a Cotton Candy stall manager and Co manager. We are also scouting for co managers/organizers in Kiddyland and Face Painting who may want to learn the ropes this year to help out more next year. Please contact Kimberley Hines on email@example.com if you are interested.
The plant stall is once again asking the MSA family for plant donations for their stall. If anyone has any they are willing to provide or you have any questions, please email Anthony and Pam Amaral at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any and all plants welcomed.
STUDENT TEACHERS FROM ALBERTA
MSA will again be hosting University of Alberta students this Fall term. We have confirmed accommodation for one of the female students at this time. If you are able to assist in hosting the second female teacher from October 7th - December 19th please call the office to discuss in more detail. It would be convenient to have her stay somewhere close to bus or ferry routes, a grocery store or in central parishes.
