MSS Kids in the Halls

The leaves are starting to fall rapidly, and the rooms and halls of MSS are decorated for Halloween! A Halloween joke for you: 

What smiles on the outside, but is hollow on the inside?

A jack-o-lantern

The senior girls basketball team has been off to a great start this year. They played their first game of the year at MSS on Tuesday, October 12th, and they won 37-20. They played again on Thursday, October 14th against the Espanola Spartans and also won! The girls are back in action on Tuesday, October 26th. Go, girls!

On Friday, October 15th, the MSS cross country team was away competing in pre-NSSSA. The Mustangs did very well, ending the day with first place runners in the novice and junior divisions. 

Yesterday, Tuesday, October 19th, there was a Cambrian College presentation in Ms. Becks’ SES4U Earth and Space Science class. Students were able to ask questions related to college and see what Cambrian College offers.

Today, Wednesday, October 20th is the last day of the ‘Zinc Saves Lives’ battery drive put on by SHARE/Go Green. Over the last week, the members of the committee have been standing in the front foyer as students get off the buses in the mornings collecting household batteries. The drive has been very successful thus far, so thank you to all students, staff, and families that have donated! 

Parent teacher interviews are being held virtually tomorrow night, Thursday, October 21st from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. It is not too late to sign up for an appointment slot with your child’s teacher(s). Please email each teacher individually to set up a time. 

Monday, October 25th is a professional development day (PD Day!). That calls for some celebration from students by sleeping in. 

Next week is the week before Halloween, so students and staff can expect some spooky fun coming their way. A Halloween joke for you: 

Did you hear about how the zombie died?

It choked on a lifesaver.

The MSS Robotics team has been meeting after school weekly preparing for in-person competitions in North Bay and York in March of 2022. The team has been getting ready for the game reveal, working on skill development (java programming, coding, welding, etc.), and they are also working on building the business side of the team by working on their social media pages and planning initiatives to fit their green vision. Additionally, the team is looking for sponsors. They are also having a little fun on the side by making Tik Toks with the robot. Check out their Tik Tok account, mssrobotics6858 to see what the team and their robot have been up to lately. 

Joke of the week: A family of fall leaves were trying to change a light bulb. A squirrel walked by and asked why the bulb had not been changed yet. The red leaf said, “because we keep falling.”

Upcoming events include parent teacher interviews, a professional development day, sports games, and Halloween!

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