All Ahead Full - A MAST Update

What a busy two week period!  MAST has definitely been all ahead full since we started almost eight weeks ago.  The first quarter is about to end and we have a lot to look forward to as we sail on!

The boys' and girls' swimming teams did a great job at GMAC's at the end of last week and we are looking forward to moving on to districts next week.  The Makos head off on a long journey to the Keys to compete and see who will turn in performances that earn trips to the next level!  Good luck, Makos!

Tonight is Homecoming at La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach.  Our theme this year is Haunted Homecoming!  It promises to be evening full of frights and delights!  I hope everyone has bought their ticket and will be there for the fun!

Last week we inducted 41 new members to the MAST chapter of the National Honor Society.  The inductees are an impressive group of students who model scholarship, attention to detail, and commitment to community service.  Congratulations to the inductees and their families.

This week we also had two seconds - the MAST PTSA's 2nd Annual College Night and the MAST Expedition Day.  Both were amazingly successful.  Thank you so much to all the parents who worked tirelessly to make the College Night such a tremendous success.  Fifty-five schools and over 220 students came out to MAST on Monday evening.  The MAST Expedition Day had as variety of activities for each of the classes.  Freshman and sophomores had three guest presenters from the larger MAST community speak to them about goal attainment, dressing for success, and planning for financial success.  The juniors had internship and an Experiment in International Living presentations and mock interviews with community business representatives.

On a final note, MAST is in the running for a $50,000.00 grant from Clorox.  We need your support to win the grant.  Please show your support by going to, register, and vote daily until November 1st, 2010.
