And the winner is... A.I.M. Food Pantry!
Both teams gave it their all with the support of their loyal fans in the second half of the MSA People Bowl. Clemson entered the second half with the eye of the tiger! Less than two minutes in and the Tigers had already scored two touchdowns. The shell-shocked Gamecocks seemed out of sync and struggled to make plays, but they had one successful passing drive to score a TD. Determined to stay in the game, they went for and made a two-point conversion. The Tigers continued to dominate though and scored two more back-to-back touchdowns before the end of the third. Going into the final quarter, the Gamecocks managed to get into the red zone early but had to settle for putting one between the uprights because the Clemson defense became an impenetrable wall. Despite a significant lead, the Tiger offense didn’t let up, scoring touchdowns on each of their next three possessions. At this point, the Gamecocks had no hope of making a comeback, but the Tigers weren’t ready to call it quits before taking it to the house one last time with less than a minute left on the clock.
1H: Tigers 13, Gamecocks 5
2H: Tigers 56, Gamecocks 11
Final Score: Tigers 69, Gamecocks 16
The MSA People Bowl has been a huge success! In total, we raised $850 for the AIM Food Pantry!!! A BIG THANK YOU to all of the Tiger and Gamecock fans who helped support their team and the mission of AIM to feed the hungry this holiday season and year-round! #MSATigersAndGamecocksTogether
In addition to the monetary donations, we are grateful for the donations of food items that will be part of the AIM Food Pantry Thanksgiving distribution next week. We will still be accepting “bags of blessings” through Tuesday morning. #MSABagsOfBlessings #MSACommitmentToService #MSAThankful
Have a fan-tastic Sunday!

Operation: Share the Warmth Tree
As the holiday season approaches, we look to the spirit of giving and service to others. Once again, MSA will be sponsoring the “Operation: Share the Warmth” Tree. This long-standing MSA holiday tradition, will serve as a school-wide community service project for December. This service project ties in with one of the school's "Four Pillar's"--a commitment to service--and fulfills a great need for the children in Anderson County.
Here’s how the service project works. A Christmas tree will be placed in the lobby of the MSA Administration building during the Thanksgiving break. The Christmas tree will only have a ribbon on the top of the tree and lights. Our students, families, and MSA classrooms are asked to provide the “decorations.” The decorations should consist of new mittens, gloves, socks and scarves. If you have gently used jackets, coats, and shoes they will gladly be accepted. Some of you may remember how beautiful the tree looked in past years, all decked out in warm clothing finery!!!
The tree will remain on campus until Friday, December 17th when the school closes for the Winter Holiday. The items will then be donated to a local charity organization, Anderson Interfaith Ministries. This project allows our Montessori students and families to provide the basic need of warmth to those who may not have the ability to stay warm during the cold winter months.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!!!
With blessings and wishes for continued good health,
Susanna Merriman, RN
