Mastery Club

What is Mastery Club?

Mastery Club is something new for our classroom this year. This is for students who are interested in reaching "Above and Beyond" the normal classroom expectations. All you have to do is learn about the topic you choose, then come and see Miss Mallatt during recess, lunch, breakfast, or after school and tell her your answers. You can become a one star member, all the way up to an 84 star member!

See who is in the mastery club in our class, 2008 - 2009
