MSS Kids in the Hall

MSS has had a great week! There has been lots of opportunities for new activities!

There were a few theme days in recent weeks. The school honoured OKLAHOMA! by dressing up in cowboy costumes. Thursday was opening night of the show and it was a wonderful show. On Friday, February 13 the whole school wore something pink in celebration of Valentine’s Day.

The school musical OKLAHOMA! was extremely successful with a house of 250 guests on opening night. Bad weather didn’t keep people away on Friday and Saturday with 200 and 350 on these nights. Everyone who saw the show was impressed with the set, choreography, timing, costumes, singing, and band. The actors had a blast on stage, and even the tech crew was singing along with the catchy songs. Director Mr. Scott said how proud he was of everybody and that he thought the show was extremely done well.

There is an upcoming workshop at Cambrian College for Grade 9 and 10 girls interested in the trades. It is a series of hands on workshops to introduce students to opportunities in automotive, millwright, machining, heavy duty equipment, welding, plumbing and power engineering. Interested students can see Mrs. Whynott in the Co-op Ed office.

The senior boys’ basketball team played a great season this year despite the scores. They had a good attitude on and off the court and are proud of themselves. Athletes can now turn their attention to badminton, which is being coached by Ms. Boisvert.

On February 20, the school held a half-day movie-day for all the students who sold magazine subscriptions. The students watched Guardians of the Galaxy and enjoyed popcorn supplied by the students’ council as they watched the film.

With speeches coming up fast, the intermediate and senior competitors are practicing for their competitions. Both of the schools representatives are excited and determined to represent their school well.

Our school is buzzing with the excitement of the opportunities coming up. ‘Til next time, stay golden Mustangs.
