MSS Kids in the Halls

We have made it into our fourth month of school! Isn’t that crazy?! Christmas is also less than a month away, meaning it’s time for our first Christmas joke of the season.

What do you get if you eat Christmas decorations? Tinsilitis!

MSS hasn’t let the cooler weather dampen their spirits or spirit days lately. Rock Your Mocs day was held across the Rainbow District School Board (RDSB) on Friday, November 13. Camo day was Friday, November 20, which was just in time for hunting season. 

The RDSB and Public Health Sudbury and Districts have come to an agreement that as of Wednesday, November 18, gators as face coverings and face masks with vents will not be permitted in schools as they do not protect as well as medical grade or fabric masks. Just a reminder that masks are available in the office and at the front door each morning. 

On Friday, November 27, RDSB students and staff across Manitoulin wore blue in honor of PC Marc Hovingh, and to collectively show that we honour, respect and appreciate our police officers. MSS staff and students walked to the intersection of Highway 540 in M’Chigeeng to show our respect as the procession made its way from Little Current to Mindemoya Missionary Church. Deepest condolences from MSS staff and students to PC Hovingh’s family, friends, coworkers and policing family. 

Picture retake day was Monday, November 30. Picture proofs will arrive in the next few weeks so you can decide if you want to order the pictures. If you have any questions, see Mrs. Marshall in the guidance office.

MSS’s winter virtual talent show is coming up soon! If you have a talent you want to show off, record a video of yourself and send it to Mr. T by Monday, December 7. It will be easier if the video is uploaded to your Google Drive before you send it. Don’t be afraid to show off your talent, Mustangs!

This year, due to COVID-19, the MSS annual Awards Night will be held virtually on Thursday, December 17. Bursaries will be mailed out to the graduates. 

Once or twice a week over the last month, members of the SHARE/Go-Green committee have been busy cleaning up the school yard. They hope to continue doing this until the snow flies, and plan to get back out there in the spring. Keep the earth clean, Mustangs!

Speaking of green, the greenhouse at MSS is quite an amazing sight! Many different plants can be seen growing! Let’s hope they continue to grow even as the temperature drops outside. 

The MSS bees have also been super busy lately making honey. MSS has honey for sale at $7/bottle. Call 705-368-7000 if you are interested.

Are you in need of some one-on-one help in one or more of your classes? If so, talk to your teachers or the guidance office to set you up with a peer tutor. Or if you are looking to gain some volunteer hours and help out a fellow MSS student, you can sign up to be a peer tutor!

Joke of the week: What do gingerbread men use when they break their legs? Candy canes.

Upcoming events include the virtual talent show, virtual Awards Night and Christmas!

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