The 2013 Middle School Dance pics are here. The evening started off at 7 pm and ended at 9 pm. The students had a whole lot of fun dancing along to songs from tried and tested ones like Gangnam Style to the trendy viral hit, “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)”. Apparently, it says: “Ring-ding-ding-ding-dingeringeding!” 😉
Music by Soundworks DJs, Alvin and Chuck.
Thank you Ms. Filios for organizing the evening! It was nice to have Dr. Ryan drop by. Thanks to the PTO parent chaperones: Sanjeev Gautam, Tiffany Anderson, Jaya Gautam, Shilpa Patel and to Renata Pang who kept the children energized with food and drinks 🙂
Game Night on Friday, September 27 was a fun activity. Ms. Filios came up with some grand trivia questions. 5- 6 teams of children enjoyed shouting jubilantly when they knew an answer, hm..mimg less loudly when they didn’t and overall having a rollicking time. Rounds included Sports, TV and Movies, General among others. In between rounds, Ms. Filios raffled away popular items like Free Dress Passes, a Magnolia themed alarm clock, DVDs, movie tickets etc.
PTO volunteers were on hand providing snacks & water. And everyone learned something new!
A couple of questions (Answers below):
‘What is the unit of measurement of racehorses’ height?
Which reality show won at the recent Emmys?’
All in all, a fun Friday night end to school 🙂
As new and returning parents and students settle into their daily routine, commuting to and from school can become a juggling act with work schedules, commute traffic/ distance, multiple children at different schools etc. MSA-SC parents come from a larger geographical area than most public schools. Over the last month, many parents have reached out to the PTO and the school to get help with carpool. They are looking to coordinate with other MSA-SC Parents in their geographic area to help ease the commute pain.
For all the carpool requests, here is a site which allows you to post a Ride Ad under an Event Listing (the Event Listing for the school is already created: Carpool to and from MSA-SC).
Please use ‘Lookup Code’: MSASC2013 to find listings or to post your own Ride Ads (carpool descriptions and needs).
Click here and register for a free account. You can then post your requirements.
Please include the following details when creating a Ride Ad:
- Major landmark
- Child’s grade
- Drop-off or pick-up
- Day/s of the week carpool is required
- For pick-up, please mention if your child is to be picked up when school ends or when his/ her After-school program ends etc.

Please note that, as a safety and a courtesy measure, we recommend there is never to be smoking or use of cell phones while driving and that the only people who will drive are the mutually agreed upon parents/caregivers. The PTO is only facilitating communication between parents for carpooling and as such the PTO or the school can assume no responsibility for safety or for any other service involved in carpooling. Parents are responsible for checking drivers’ licenses, insurance and any other details. Neither the school nor the PTO is affiliated with Rideshare.
Leave a comment to let us know how it works out 🙂
