Then and Now: Fashion Flashback

Many things have changed since MSMS was created 25 years ago. From residential life to who’s working all the way to the classroom, things are different. Especially fashion. From high waist pants to short skirts. From guys wearing shorter shorts to longer shorts. Girls dresses go from loose-fitting to tight-fitting. From thick bulky glasses to slick and sassy. From big poofy hair to sleek. Shoes go from plain to loud. Bright colors are bursting through the clothes. And look at those teachers! See how they looked 20 years ago? You know how they look now. They have changed their style to fit in with us kids. Just take a look at these pictures! Slideshow

Members of MSMS Family Donate Instruments to Music Department
By: Simon Schwartz

The orchestra is always in direr need of instruments, luckily this year the orchestra got a donation of a trumpet from MSMS alum Michael Counihan and an alto saxophone from junior Conner Taffe’s family.

The additional trumpet has come in very handy since the number of trumpets has gone up by three since last year and most of them are using a school owned instrument.

The Taffe family had this to say when asked about the saxophone, “Well, we were no longer using it, and I heard MSMS needed some instruments.” According to Miss Taffe, “This instrument has been in our family since Connor's father was in junior high band, in the early 1970s. We had it reconditioned for Connor, who played it for three years, and then Aiden (Connor's sister) played it for a year." Miss Taffe said that the fact that “MSMS provides a great opportunity for academically and musically talented kids to get a better education, and I believe in the cause” helped in the decision to donate the instrument.
