M.S.S. Kids in the Halls

The school year is quickly coming to a close with final projects and exams starting.

On Friday at lunch, Students’ Council held a End of Year Pep Rally in the gym. Students could have their faces painted on their way in then join in a friendly game of dodgeball. The bleachers were full of spectators cheering on the students playing. School spirit is uplifting in this stressful time of year.  

On May 30-31, Bryce Mastelko, Mackenzie Turner and Jackie Cooper travelled to the University of Toronto for OFSAA Tennis.
