The Intermediate School Music Department invites all community members to the Spring Chorus Concert featuring the fourth and fifth grade choirs, under the direction of Danielle Cornacchio.
This lively choral event is sure to have you dancing in your seat to such popular tunes as "Best Day of My Life," "Better When I'm Dancin'," and "Happy."
The Middle School seventh and eighth grade Select Choir, will add their voices to our musical celebration with a special guest performance.
We look forward to having everyone come out and join us in the school auditorium for this joyous evening!
It’s been a very industrious spring season for student members of MVIS K-Kids Club.
During the month of April, the club’s second Soup on Saturday campaign collected 113 food items for the food pantry at Holy Cross Catholic Church. A fundraiser for Deerpark’s Humane Society collected 135 pet care items and a donation of $173. Students and parents delivered the goods on May 6 and were treated to a guided tour.
Club members have also put on their creative hats to enter a K-Kids Best Song contest. They invite the Minisink school community to view a video of their original song and vote for them.
Well done, K-Kids!

Since 1984, the first week of May has been designated National Teacher Appreciation Week – a time to acknowledge the unique role teachers play in shaping the future of our children and our communities.
As reported this morning, New York State Police (NYSP), in close collaboration with school officials, has been conducting a thorough investigation since last night to assess the credibility of rumors circulated among high school students.
NYSP has investigated every aspect of this alleged threat, and the district has been informed that there is no credible information or evidence to substantiate the circulated rumors.
Out of an abundance of caution, we will retain a police presence on campus throughout the day tomorrow.
We want to recognize NYS Troopers for their tireless efforts and assistance to ensure the safety of our entire school community.
Late last night, Wed., May 3, Minisink Valley Central School District officials were made aware of a rumor circulating among students of a potential threat to the high school on Friday, May 5.
District officials immediately contacted New York State Police and a complete investigation is ongoing. Out of an abundance of caution, there is a police presence on the district’s main campus and Otisville campus today. The instructional day for students will not be disrupted by police presence or their investigation.
As always, we take any threat to the safety of our students and staff very seriously, and we are fully invested in coordinating efforts with law enforcement to investigate and remove any potential danger.
We will continue to provide updates on this situation as they become available.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the district office at 355-5115.
Congratulations to Minisink Valley students who participated in the All County Music Festival at the Newburgh Free Academy on Saturday, April 29.
The spring 2017 testing schedule for students in grades 3-8 is as follows:
Tests will be administered immediately after morning announcements. It is extremely important that your child arrive at school on time. Children who arrive late will be held in the office and will complete the testing on the makeup day. Once testing begins, it cannot be restarted to accommodate late students.
If you know that your child will be absent on one or more of the testing days, please notify the school so alternate arrangements may be made for him/her to make up the test. A healthy breakfast, a full night's sleep, and a word of encouragement will help your child perform his/her best.
