MSS Kids in the Halls

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and Family Day weekend!

On Wednesday, February 12, both the senior and junior girls’ volleyball teams were in action in the North Shore Secondary Schools Association (NSSSA) finals. The junior girls hosted the finals at MSS and the senior girls played at Espanola High School. The junior girls played Central Algoma Secondary School at 10 am and won, securing their spot in the finals later that afternoon. Espanola High School and Elliot Lake played for the final position in the finals. Espanola secured the victory to play the Mustangs. MSS and Espanola played a very close and exciting final game but MSS came out on top winning all three sets. The Mustangs were all smiles as Grade 10 student Chloe Peltier strongly spiked the ball for the final point to win the championship. Way to go, girls! Good luck at NOSSA next week! 

The senior girls’ volleyball team played well during the finals, but did not move on to NOSSA. Great season, girls!

Also on Wednesday, February 12, the MSS boys’ hockey team played their first game of the semi-finals against St. Benedict. Good luck in the rest of the playoffs, boys!

Thank you to everyone that came out to see the MSS musical production of ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ last Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. Also, a big thank you to all the people who were a major part of the production that were not showcased on the stage: stage manager Allie Carrick; everyone that made up the sound, light, and stage crew; head technical director Ms. Theijsmeijer; artistic director Mr. Zegil; musical director Mr. Theijsmeijer; the talented members of the pit band; choreographer Ms. Boisvert; head of costumes Miss Ferguson and producer Ms. Bauer. We hope everyone enjoyed the show! A musical joke for you:

Why do they tell actors to break a leg? Because every play has a cast.

Today, Wednesday, February 19 the MSS girls’ hockey team will be playing against L’horizon at Ray Plourde arena at 3:30 pm. The girls also play a home game in M’Chigeeng against Notre-Dame on Thursday, February 20 at 5 pm. Please come out to cheer on the Mustangs as they get ready to head into the playoffs! 

Students do not have school this Friday, February 21 due to a withdrawal of services by teaching staff.

Grade 8 information night for students and parents will be held at MSS tomorrow, February 20 at 6 pm. We hope to see you there!

Joke of the week: What happens when an ice cube gets angry? It boils with anger, then lets off some steam.

Upcoming events include the MSS girls’ hockey home game, volleyball, Grade 8 information night and much more!

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