Fall sports brought acclaim in many areas this year.

Miami Christian School Junior Alex Yaniz competed as a member of the Miami Christian School Varsity Bowling Team in Orlando for the State Finals and won a medal for Fourth Place in the State Individual Bowling Category. The Boys’ Bowling Team took the 2013 District Championship while the Girls Varsity Volleyball Team finished the season as 2013 District 2A- Runner-up.

MCS students, family, friends and surrounding community residents gathered at the school on Nov.9 for the 2013 Fall Festival/Community Vendor event. Visitors participated in a number of booth events and got their exercise in the Bounce House. Students and participants won goldfish, stuffed animals, and special prizes for skilled performances at the booths. A hay ride plus a wide selection of grilled foods and baked goods made the day complete.

Thanksgiving is a special time at MCS, especially for the pre-school and elementary school students who present a program commemorating the First Thanksgiving.

Families contribute the food items for a big feast that is shared and celebrated by all after enjoying always-entertaining shows by children’s’ musical numbers, readings, and re-enactments. All in all, this year’s show and feast were enjoyed by all.

In the Fine Arts Department, students are gearing up for holiday performances. Band students recently competed in Solo and Ensemble competition during which Junior Sonali Khiyani garnered an “Excellent” rating for her flute performance.

In the Engineering Department, the Robotic class held a robot wrestling competition under tutelage of Margot Youssef, instructor. Programmed robots fought each other as faculty members served as judges. The team winning first place included Justin Marono, Anthony Febre and Danny Galarza.
