Coming into the Last Week!

Congratulations and welcome to our last week of school for the 2008-2009 school year. Don't let the shortness of time fool you for the amount of work yet to be done is large. Monday and Tuesday we have four more final exams! Study hard, be prepared, and remember that summer does not begin until June 5th!

Graduation is upon us also. Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at 8:00 PM at the Gusman Performing Arts Center we will properly recognize the culmination of our seniors' four years and hard work at the MAST Academy. It is a proud night for parents, relatives, teachers, and students alike.

This past week was amazingly busy and enjoyable. Thanks to all the MAST staff and parents who came to celebrate our students' achievements at the evening awards ceremony. No matter how many times our students, you cannot help but be impressed at the quality of their work, passion, and character. We also held an amazing Wine and Cheese greeting for our incoming freshman parents at Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens. Many thanks to our advisory board members, particularly Ms. Kourtesis and Ms. Lewis, for making this happen. It was great to see so many parents in attendance. Thanks also to our PTSA parents for showing up in force to make the night go so well. We capped the week off with the PTSA's MAST Family Barbecue that, despite being a bit soggy, was also an incredible event. Many thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Dubey, Mr. & Mrs. Harrington, Mr. & Mrs. Barkett, and many other PTSA parents who showed up in force to make this a success.

More next week as we move into the summer and begin the final stages of preparation for the MAST Summer Anchor Program and the opening of the 2009-2010 school year!

Study hard and be well prepared!
