MSS Kids in the Halls

We are almost a full month into 2022! There are only a handful of classes left in the first semester which makes it even more mind-blowing!

A school joke for you: When I was a kid, my English teacher looked my way and said, “Name two pronouns.” I said, “Who, me?”

The MSS Student Council is looking for students’ input on events and spirit days at school for the second semester. Student Council recognizes that it has been a hard few years in terms of school events and participation. They hope that some events can be held during second semester, but everything will depend on the situation with COVID-19 and restrictions at any point. There is a Google Form that students can individually fill out. The form includes questions about past events, their success and outreach as well as what students would like to see for events in the future. This is the URL link to the form: https://forms.gle/ooajfZep6fbZ2bUa9. 

As part of the Ontario government’s back-to-school plan that was announced a few weeks ago, all students were given two COVID-19 rapid antigen tests last week during their second period classes. Students on spare were to receive them through the main office.

Just a note for all students looking to apply to college this year! College applications are due on Tuesday, February 1. If you haven’t applied yet, make sure you do it before the deadline. If you have any last-minute questions, please see any of the guidance counsellors in the guidance office or you can email them.

Next Wednesday, February 2 is the last day of classes for the first semester. There will be no class on Thursday, February 3, and Friday, February 4 is a Professional Development (PD Day). Yes, this means a four-day weekend for students!

Joke of the week: There’s a fine line between a numerator and a denominator. Only a fraction of people will find this funny.

Upcoming events include the end of first semester, a PD Day, and Grade 9 Information Night on February 10.

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