A word from Mrs. Koperno
I would like to wish you and your families a very Happy Thanksgiving and a terrific holiday season. Over the next weeks, I am sure many of you will be busy preparing for family and friends to visit. As this holiday season progresses, it is important to keep in mind how the interruptions of the holidays impact the students. We would ask that you take an extra moment to help your child focus and stay on task with schoolwork while enjoying this time of year.
We have supportive parents and community, with a giving and engaged MAAPO at the forefront, to which we all say thank you for everything you do to make MAA the highly rated school it is today. And finally, we have incredible students, who challenge themselves every day to learn and be engaged as well as challenging us to become better people. They are why we are here every day!
We are always looking to keep our students safe and healthy in school. Please note that children must remain home until they are fever-free for a full 24 hours without medication for any illness. Please check your children before they leave for school in the morning and keep them home if they are ill, especially with fever. Please be reminded not give them medication for fever and then send them to school, as fever can indicate a contagious stage, potentially affecting others. We will continue to require masks for all students, visitors, and staff indoors (regardless of vaccination status).
Winter showcases are coming up; check the calendar in this newsletter for dates and times. I am looking forward to seeing all of our talented students.
