MSS Kids in the Halls

Today is National Pasta day! I would recommend having some type of paste for lunch or supper today! A pasta joke for you: What do you call a sick pasta? Mac n’ sneeze!

MSS was full of cheer on Tuesday, October 9! Both the junior and senior girls basketball teams played at MSS. The senior girls played the W.C. Eaket Royals from Blind River.

This year, MSS will be putting on the musical production The Mikado! A meeting for any interested actors, techies, make-up artists, etc. was held on Thursday, October 11. Everyone is very excited for the auditions to begin! Auditions for high school students will be held from October 22-24 after school. The auditions consist of one minute of a song, a monologue, and a short dance (previously choreographed). Auditions for elementary students will be held on Saturday, October 27. Anyone is welcome to come out and audition! There are many different roles that need to be filled, whether you want to sing, speak, dance, etc. If you have any questions, speak with director, Mr. Zegil, Mr. Thejismejier or Ms. Bauer!

Tryouts for both the girls’ and boys’ hockey teams are complete. It is now time for the first puck to drop at their first exhibition games!

Last week’s weekly intention was “live in the moment, be present!”

Thank you to the students who participated in the Magazine Drive. Also, thank you to everyone who bought either a magazine subscription or a tervis tumbler! I hope everyone enjoys reading the magazines they bought or having a warm cup of hot chocolate or coffee in their new tumbler!

Joke of the week: Who was the roundest knight in King Arthur’s court? Sir Cumference
