MSS Kids in the Halls

Next week is March Break! Monday, March 14 through Friday, March 18 is the designated time off for staff and students. However, this Friday, March 11 is a PD (Professional Development) Day which means students get an early start to their break.

A spring joke for you: The bed store is having a spring sale. Unfortunately, the rest of the beds are still full price.

On Tuesday, March 1, the girls’ hockey team played Macdonald Cartier in Garson. Two goals in the second period resulted in the game’s final score being tied 1-1.

On Wednesday, March 2 and Thursday, March 3, the MSS girls’ curling team participated in the NOSSA (Northern Ontario Secondary School Association) curling tournament in Sudbury. The team included Bella Jefkins, who skipped the team, Katelyn Shank, Autumn Davy and Sadie Bridgeman. They were coached by Dr. Johnston. The girls did wonderful playing against teams from across the north. The boys’ and girls’ teams from Espanola High School were the winners of the tournament. Great job, girls!

Also on Wednesday, the girls’ hockey team was back in action playing the Lively Hawks at the NEMI Rec Centre. The girls skated to a 6-3 win.

On Thursday, March 3, a few MSS students participated in the NOSSA downhill skiing event at the Adanac Ski Hill in Sudbury! The students included Jack Pennie, Alan Wilkin, Patrick McCann, TJ Green and Grace Pennie. Jack Pennie came fourth overall in the boys’ division.

On Friday, March 4, the junior and senior girls’ volleyball teams were back in action. The junior girls hosted other teams at MSS for the day while the senior girls played in Espanola. Both teams did wonderful on Friday and represented MSS well. Espanola High School live streamed all the games on Friday on YouTube, so if you would like to watch the senior girls play, here is the link to the video: Keep up the good work, Mustangs!

MSS is having a spirit wear sale! There are three different hoodies, in three different colours, with two mustang logos available. Orders can be placed by parents and/or students through SchoolCash Online or an order form can be filled out. The deadline for orders to be placed is March 31.

Don’t forget that the time changes this weekend! We sadly lose an hour of sleep, but it means more daylight in the evening.

Joke of the week: What happens when you try to make a clock Spring Forward? It gets ticked off.

Upcoming events include a PD Day and March Break.

Until the next time, “Dream and Believe. Learn and Achieve!”
