Newsletter | October 2022
Dear MASSA Families,

Happy Fall! As we look forward to the changing of the season, please remember to label your child’s jacket and sweaters. Our Lost and Found is overflowing. If your child is missing personal items, please stop by the front office on Fridays. We will have our Lost and Found bin available for you to look through.

I was very pleased to see the turnout we had during our parent/teacher conference. Working in partnership with your child’s teacher is essential to maximizing their learning this school year. Please do not hesitate to reach out throughout the school year to stay updated with your child’s progress. If you need administrative support please contact our leadership team: Ms. Shannon- Dean of scholars, Ms. Alicia-Assistant Principal of Academics, Ms. Kim- Assistant Principal of scholars and myself the principal. We are here for you.

Our MASSA family wishes you a very happy Fall Break and we look forward to seeing everyone during our annual Trunk or Treat on October 28th, 5:00-6:30 pm!  

With Kindest Regards,
Norma Derby-Principal 

Breakfast & Lunch

This is mostly for our new families, but as a reminder, Breakfast and Lunch are no longer free for all K-12 students in the state of Arizona. The federal funding to support COVID relief has ended going into this school year. MASSA is offering healthy meals every school day. Breakfast costs $1.70; lunch costs $3.33. Your children may qualify for free meals or for reduced-price meals. The reduced price is $0.30 for breakfast and $0.40 for lunch. Breakfasts are available in the cafeteria from 7:30 am - 7:45 am. If your student is participating in extended care, snacks are provided at no cost.
