MANY BENEFITS TO INTRAMURAL SOCCER PROGRAM

Posted December 7 at 10:00am

Fifth grade boys and girls are participating in an early morning, intramural soccer program at the Intermediate School with Ms. Uhelsky. Students arrive Tuesday and Thursday, at 7:40 a.m., and exercise the recommended 60 minutes, prior to the start of the school day.

 

“It’s great exercise for the students. They go to class wide awake but settled and focused to learn,” said Coach Theresa Uhelsky, K-5 physical education teacher, who runs the program.

 

One day of the week, students play recreational soccer. On the other, they engage in a round-robin style tournament.

MVIS FIFTH GRADE WING CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THANKSGIVING FEAST

Posted November 21 at 3:56pm

For the 20th consecutive year, MVIS's Wing A (5th grade) celebrated its Thanksgiving Feast with all the traditional main courses, sides, and trimmings.

Twenty-times coordinator Mr. Conklin made many a trip up and down stairs, between the banquet hall and the lower floor kitchen, to keep the food warm. Faculty and parents contributed dishes, set up the long row of tables along Wing A, decorated the hallway, and served the guests. Middletown's DeFilippis Bakery donated a scrumptious pie extravaganza!

Before enjoying their food, students gathered around the long row of plentiful tables to say thank you. Many thanks to all who made possible another spectacular Thanksgiving Feast for our fifth grade students. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  (Additional photos) (Facebook album)
