A Great Day to Celebrate MKA’s Cougar Pride

Located on Van Brunt Field under sunny skies, PAMKA was thrilled to host Cougar Pride Day on Saturday, April 27. Around 500 current and new students attended the festivities along with parents, alumni, faculty, and staff and enjoyed a wonderful day of fun, food, and friends.

Students decked out in their Cougar Pride Day t-shirts enjoyed inflatable rides, carnival games, arts & crafts, and an obstacle course.  Several groups, including the Pep Band, Upper School Cheerleading Team, and the Middle School Step Team put on great performances. Families were encouraged to donate food and personal care items as part of a community engagement initiative to benefit Toni’s Kitchen. Thanks to our generous community, PAMKA was able to donate over 150 items!

Cougar Pride Day is one of the few occasions during the year that allows all three campuses to come together and celebrate our school spirit. Many thanks to Co-Chairs Julia Mortimore and EJ Park, along with the many volunteers, who made this special day for our community a success. To view more photos of the event, please visit
