Updates for April 22
Friday was the conclusion of our 24-hour “Make-It Day” that started at 1 PM on Thursday. Each level got to share their creations with the others as we had a school-wide “Make It Day” tour. Wow, it’s amazing how creative our students are and what fascinating interests they have! One student even chose to do a documentary on “Make It Day”! Some of the photos are below for you to enjoy.
Visiting “Trucks on Main” is a great family outing and serves the added purpose of helping to keep children in Anderson County safe while in cars! The event is organized by Junior League of Anderson County, sponsored by MSA, and supports Seats for Safety which provides car seats for those in need in Anderson County. The fun begins at 10 AM in downtown Anderson!
Please join the MSA board and administration this Tuesday, April 26 at 6 PM for the Annual Meeting as our accountant from Argo and Associates will present the Annual Financial Report. Also, nominations are currently being accepted for open positions for the MSA board beginning this summer. Particular areas of expertise needed are marketing and fundraising. If you have these skills or know a prospective candidate who does, please contact email@example.com.
Monday students will receive information about the “Student Strengths Show” which will be held after lunch on Field Day. It will be an opportunity for students to showcase all types of "strengths". They could include anything from knock-knock jokes, karate moves, magic tricks, jump rope skills, reciting the alphabet backward, demonstrating proper flossing technique, and so much more!
Next week includes Stanford 10 testing for grades 4 - 8, Monday through Thursday, followed by our school-wide Field Day celebration on Friday, April 29. What a great way to end the week and close out the month of April!
A brief “Where are they now?” -We recently received some exciting news about a 2018 MSA graduate. Catherine Hiebel, who attended MSA from primary through high school, will be graduating from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, in May. Catherine was on the swim team all four years at SU and still managed to double major in Political Science and Spanish with a minor in History. She has been inducted into both the Alpha Chi and Phi Beta Kappa national honor societies and was recently selected as a Fulbright scholar. The Fulbright Program is considered the most prestigious educational exchange program, providing recent college graduates and graduate students the opportunity to teach or conduct research in a foreign country. Catherine will spend next year in the Spanish province of the Canary Islands. We are so excited for Catherine and wish her continued success and blessings!
