M.S.S. Kids in the Hall

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! It may have been a little rainy, but I hope you found the bright side of it. It rained so much that the animals started to pair up…

Students are counting down the days until the end of the school year. The spring sun is giving the students extra motivation to get their homework done so they can get outside.

On Saturday, May 11, the MSS “Walk for Water” took place. After 12-and-a-half long hours and 60+ kilometers, the two teams, who began walking at 6 am, met in M’Chigeeng for a special concluding ceremony. A fundraising goal of $1,000 was set, but once everything was tallied up, over $2,176 was raised. The money will go to water projects all over the world. MSS is so proud of the students, staff and community members who spent their day participating in this event. Thank you to everyone for your support.

On Tuesday, May 14, the MSS tennis team participated in their first competition of the season. Despite a rough start to the day, the Mustangs came back strong and finished the day with first place finishes in girls doubles and mixed doubles. A second place finish was captured in girls singles. MSS placed first for overall points bringing home the NSSSA banner. Congratulations, Mustangs!

At noon on May 16, participating students headed to Stratford. They returned early in the morning on Sunday, May 19. On their trip, students had the opportunity to participate in various workshops and tours as well as see productions such as Henry VIII, Orthello, Billy Elliot, and Little Shop of Horrors. The students had so much fun! A Shakespeare joke for you:

Knock, Knock.

Who’s there? 

Julius Caesar.

Julius Caesar who? 

Julius, seize her! She’s the one who stole my wallet!

The Prom Project is back at MSS! Students looking for their perfect attire for prom can stop by Mrs. McCann’s room until Friday, May 24. Students can select their perfect dress or suit for this special occasion. There is something for everyone!
