We had the pink out pep rally for breast cancer awareness last month. The cheerleaders had pink tutus, socks, pom poms, bows, and pink shirts that said “MMS Cheer.” In my opinion, I think that the whole student body did a great job of “pinking out” MMS. Even the football players had pink gloves, towels, and etc. to support the pink out movement. I personally am very glad that the MMS school district is raising awareness for breast cancer and shows spirit in many different ways.

Student Council President

Sarah Arcand

Today I interviewed the president of Student Council, which is Sarah Arcand. I asked Sarah what made her want to be president for Student Council and she said that she likes to be in charge and likes to make people feel good about themselves. The thing she wants to change for our school is that we should have enough time to eat lunch, because the lines are long. People at the end of the line don’t have time to eat.

Leading people in the right direction is what Student Council means to Sarah. I asked her what does Student Council do and she told me that they make decisions of what to do at the school and they also do fundraisers.

Sarah has three siblings two brothers 14 and 3 and a little sister that is 8. Her favorite subjects are math and science. She is also apart of Builders Club, participates in Model UN, and outside of school she does Girl Scouts.

Cross Country Results

In the District Cross Country meet the girls got 2nd place overall! That is one of the best results for them ever. For some people cross country is their favorite sport. For some people cross country is their life. Training to get better, to keep pushing and driving their heart, soul, and lungs to do their very best. Then when they are done they feel like they are on top of the world, because of their hard work, dedication, determination, self discipline, effort, and love for what they do.
