We Celebrate You!

Our school has many celebrations and traditions that we honor throughout the year. We have the Walk Around the Sun in Primary, we do a beautiful gratitude birthday celebration in Lower Elementary, we have Piping Up in Upper Elementary and we have the Flag Ceremony in Upper School. It definitely does not stop there and we find ways to honor all of our students across campus. These celebrations and traditions are some of the rites of passages our students look forward to as they progress through the grades. We welcome you to join our community in these celebrations and traditions and hope you see the value in honoring the spirit of our students.


In this picture, you will see a lower elementary student being honored with a wish of gratitude by Ms. Molly at his birthday celebration.

Captain Louie Jr.

Please join us along with Upper Elementary as they present Captain Louie Jr. The productions will be Thursday, October 26- Saturday October 28. Stay tuned for further details.


Louie has just moved to a new town and is nervous to make new friends. Alone in his room, he takes flight in his imagination back to his old neighborhood, where he spends Halloween with his colorful crew of chums. Over the course of trick-or-treating and being introduced to the new kid in that neighborhood, Louie discovers that making new friends is nothing to be afraid of.

MSA Eagles Athletics

Volleyball

The volleyball girls placed 2nd at the Temple Christian Academy tournament this past Saturday after going 2-2 for the day. Emma Rogers was named to the all tournament team (picture included) for her great performance throughout the day.


On Tuesday, they celebrated Senior Night, with a send-off for the three seniors. They fought hard to earn the win over Cambridge Academy after going back and forth during the 4 sets. Mary Claire, Morgan & Emma were three of the seven girls who were willing to take the leap from playing in the local Rec league to really competing in the SCISA league. It has been great to see that their hard work the past few years is paying off, as the head into their last three regional matches with a 5-3 conference record.


Cross Country

Carter & Mitchell Wolken competed at the GTC Tiger Classic in Greenville on Saturday along with 600 other upstate runners. They raced one another to the finish (picture)!

On Tuesday, the team traveled to Boiling Springs to participate in the Spartanburg Christian Academy Invitational. The boys enjoyed only running 2 miles since it was a middle school meet.

Parent Education Series

Please join us for our new Parent Education Series this year. It is our hope to help educate families on the Montessori Philosophy and what makes it so unique. Teachers across campus are working hard to create informative sessions that will be beneficial to our families. We hope that you join us for these events. Please let us know if there are topics you wish to hear about.


Thank you to the families who joined Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, Middle School and High School this past week in our Parent Education Series. If you did not make it, please make sure to touch base with your children's teachers in order to receive any information you may have missed.

Hope for Hurricane Families

We are continuing our school-wide effort to help victims of the recent hurricanes by collecting donations in classrooms across campus. To help, students may bring any amount of money to add to the "Help for Hurricane Families" jars in their classroom. We will continue working to fill our jars until the end of the month. Thanks for helping!
