Hello MSA Friends,
It’s so fun and satisfying to see creative kids across campus proudly finishing and showing off what they’ve made and reflecting on what they’ve learned. Often our artists can’t decide whether to share their creations or keep them, but a little coaxing brings out a generosity of spirit we associate with the holidays and end of the year.
As we look back at the first semester and the last year, we are so grateful for all the ways our families and friends have showed up and supported our efforts to infuse creativity and community into our high schoolers daily lives. As artists ourselves, we embrace the ongoing challenge and love of becoming MSA, responding to our students’ interests and needs and striving to CREATE with sensitivity, a blend of humility and pride, and a pursuit of beauty and joy. And we love sharing (and coaxing) with YOU.
On behalf of the entire MSA staff, happy holidays and joyful new year.
-Michelle Cortez and the MSA Staff
P.S. There’s still a little more joy and creativity to be shared before we wrap up 2023. Soiree is tomorrow night! Come on down and check it out!
