Catching Up and Sailing on Strong

As February is drawing to a close, there is much in the wings at MAST.  In a few short days, we will have the FCAT Writing exam for 10th graders, our PTSA will be hosting our 5th gala event (please see prior post for RSVP information), water polo season is about to begin, and student registration for the 2011-2012 school year begins next week.  That's a lot to look forward to!

This afternoon our water polo teams kick off their seasons with their first meets at home against Hialeah Gardens Senior.  The girls play at 4 pm and the boys at 5 pm.  Tomorrow night we celebrate our Teacher and Rookie Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Avendano and Ms. Fernandez are our MAST nominees respectively.  Wednesday evening we will join all the district nominees for see who will be the recipient of this year's award.  We will wind up the week with a second visit from a group of British teachers.  Earlier in the year we had a small group of about six educators come by for the day and experience MAST.  This time around, the group will shadow teachers and spend a day and a half with us.

Good luck to all and I hope you enjoy a shorter but extremely busy week.
