Week in Summary - Nearing Shore Leave

It was an another great week for the Makos.  We have finished FCAT completely and I am proud to say that a full 100% of ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders sat the exam.  Now our sights are realigning towards the waters between now and AP exams.  It is difficult to imagine that we are just a week away from the completion of the third quarter.

Last night was the Treasure Island dinner and auction sponsored by the MAST PTSA at the Links at Key Biscayne.  I want to give a huge thank you to the committee for making this such a particularly enjoyable and successful event.  Last night's event truly highlights what a committed group of parents is capable of doing for a school.  Amazing!

Congratulations to Cindy & Chico Goldsmith as our honorees for last night's event.  It is so wonderfully appropriate to be able to recognize such long standing and committed community members for their passion and dedication to a unique school and community in MAST Academy.  We appreciate all you do and have done with and for us much more than we could ever express.  Thank you for everything!

Finally, and not to be left out, the Makos water polo teams dove back into the deep water this week with the completion of FCAT.  The girls' and boys' squads both played tough Hialeah High teams and swan to victory.  The boys' played an excellent match against Belen being edged out at the final buzzer in a tightly fought contest.

This week we are preparing to reach port and our spring break shore leave.  I am looking forward to a great week to include MAST annual science fair and parent night on Thursday, March 22!  Please don't forget the Community Rally for Education on Monday at Miami Northwestern beginning at 6:30 pm.  TIghtlines and fair winds!
