Did you know there is a Presidential election on November 3?
Goodness, with everything going on around here, we almost forgot that November 3 is Election Day. Okay, not really, but it was an eventful Fall Fling Week! Here are just a few of the things we did -
Spirit Days which included Pajama Day, Inside Out Day, Superhero Day, Sports Team Day, and MSA Blue and White Day
All sorts of pumpkin activities which included rolling pumpkins, carving pumpkins, hammering nails into pumpkins, toasting pumpkin seeds, and more.
STEAM projects that used pumpkins, like “Will it float?”, pumpkin planters, the pumpkin cart challenge, and the pumpkin flame test.
P.E. challenges incorporating pumpkins which included pumpkin ring toss, pumpkin horseshoes, pumpkin limbo, and pumpkin balance beam.
Classes shared photos from some of these activities as we went through the week, but there are more below for you to enjoy!
There are also pictures below of our October community service project for Breast Cancer Awareness and of the kick-off to our November MSA Tigers and Gamecocks for People Bowl that will benefit AIM. Students of all ages have the opportunity to participate and we are pleased to announce that our “pre-game warm-up” suggests that we are in store for an exciting MSA People Bowl! We will publish the FIRST QUARTER SCORE next Friday. ($50= touchdown; $30= field goal.) Continue to show your support and stay tuned…
In the meantime, be sure to mark your calendar to vote on Tuesday, November 3. MSA will be a polling site so all programs will be closed that day. NO SCHOOL OR EXTENDED CARE ON 11/3/20.
Have a great last week of October!
