Great Way for Parents to help MSSA

Hey parents we have a great way to support our administration  and school this football season.  Our MSSA  staff works hard all week and then on top of teaching and loving our kids runs a parking lot for big events at the Liberty Bowl.  They could use some help.  All proceeds made go to support MSSA  and Middle College.  If you would like to serve our school in this way you can sign up here   MSSA Parking Volunteer

There will be a few more dates added to this schedule.
Thanks in advance for your help.
