The second grade boarded the bus and headed to the Upper School for The Gathering. The Annual All-School Gathering epitomizes everything that makes MKA special, a community that is as diverse as it is united, and one certainly filled with school spirit and thousands of proud cougars! Student talent was on exhibit with exemplary performances from the Primary School Bellringers playing "America the Beautiful," Middle School Chamber Singers, Middle and Upper School Jazz Ensembles, Middle School Dance Ensemble, and the Cheerleaders and Step Team. The fun continued back at Brookside as the children had a pizza lunch on the back field followed by games and of course the ice cream truck. This special morning and afternoon alike made it a truly perfect ending to a great week.
