Miami Christian Students Enjoy Fall Activities

Flagpole ceremony draws staff, students.

Fall is in the air and October was hopping with numerous student activities at Miami Christian School from the Hispanic Heritage Month parade, and a big luncheon with parents visit to the Miami Springs Pumpkin Patch for elementary school students.

Meantime, middle schoolers who had earned a merit trip enjoyed a day of ice skating and several high school students participated in a school-wide trip to Teen Valley Ranch in North Carolina – enjoying cooler mountain air for hiking, horseback riding and zip lining, as well as time for spiritual refreshment and daily chapel services. Campfires, day trips and on-camp athletic activities rounded out the annual high school retreat.

For spiritual and character growth, MCS staff and students participated in the “National See You at the Pole Day,” gathering around the flag pole at their respective schools to pray for the country, its leaders, and their respective schools. Metro Life Church Youth Pastor Chris Alessi served as Spiritual Emphasis Speaker for a week of daily chapel services. He and musical members of his team motivated and inspired both middle and high school students.

On the athletic front Alex Yaniz won a gold medal in the Broward/Dade Bowling Tournament with MCS seeded first as the tournament began. The individual gold medal was won by Alex for bowling 727, the highest combined score. In addition, MCS Senior Arnaldo Lopez was named “Player to Watch” in high school basketball by “RMF Magazine”.

The Girls’ Varsity Volleyball Team gave it a shot at the District Championship but lost its final match to come in second in the district but still earning them a spot in regional brackets. For those final games, MCS showed everyone what school spirit is all about with the nearly all members of boys’ athletic teams cheering the girls on and putting on a show before sell-out crowds with standing room only during the District semifinals against Riviera Preparatory and final against Divine Savior.

Next up for MCS, a big community garage sale with carnival-type games and activities in the works for Nov. 9 on the school campus from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Look for lots of good food, bargains and games galore — promising to be a great family event.

Finally, those interested in attending Miami Christian School and setting up a school tour to learn about its academic programs may call Chris Cuadra at 305-221- 7754 ext. 771. MCS is located at 200 NW 109 Ave.
