Big Saturday Turnout for Panther Sports and Welcome Back Picnic!

The ASM panthers debuted their varsity soccer season with their first home game against TASIS. It was a great day - sunny and cool - for the matches.  The girls tried hard but lost as TASIS proved stronger, while the ASM boys team started and finished strongly with a 4-0 win.

While the games were being played, preparations were underway for the PTO’s Welcome Back Picnic, a staple on ASM’s calendar of welcome back events, which kicked off at noon.  This year, food and fun were  plentiful and our panther was on hand to greet the little ones.  There were Irish and modern dance, golf, kung fu and sticks & stones demonstrations and more from our after-school vendors, while sponsor Cavallino Bianco provided picnic blankets, baby dance opportunities with mascot Lino and more.  The Mondo di MeG team entertained with face painting and balloons that were a huge hit.  It was a fun end of summer Saturday for all at ASM!
