Mid-Week Sailing Report

This morning Dr. Khalil opened MAST's annual Science Fair in the auditorium. I had the pleasure of spending a short time walking in and among the students' projects.  As I walked through the first two rows there were a number of standouts.  I am looking forward to another opportunity tomorrow afternoon to walk through again and snap some photos and read some more about the experiments.  Dr. Ochatt took time with her classes to visit the fair to allow students to view and share in one another's work.  We will wind up this year's fair on Thursday, March 25, at 6:30 pm.  I invite all MAST family members to come see the work that the students have done and participate in the evening's culmination - the awards ceremony for the best of the projects.

Last night I attended the Community Rally for Education at Miami Northwestern.  Mr. Carvalho and Mr. Woodson presented some daunting figures.  I would encourage those who did not have the opportunity to attend to check the Miami-Dade County Public School's website for a recording of the program.  I wish all of our community members heading off to Tallahassee for the "Rally in Tally" a safe trip and much success. 

From the waterfront, this week is extremely full.  The Lady Makos faced off against Coral Reef this afternoon.  On a perfect water polo afternoon, we lost a tough one 15-11 with many shots just missing the mark.  Tomorrow both the boys and girls take to the pool again to play Miami High at 4:00 pm and 5:30 pm.  Then, again on Thursday, both teams will shoot it out with Miami Springs at 4:00 and 5:30 pm.  We hope to see you there!

Finally, this afternoon MAST's Silver Knight nominees had their interviews with the Silver Knight committes.   Congratulations and good luck to Summiya, Mitchell, David, Andrea, Rhiannon, Tali, Leah, and Charnelle.
