Forget trying to get your teacher to go down in the dunk tank. MVHS students practically paid for the thrill of dumping a bucket of ice water on their English teachers during Field Day on Tue., March 15. Standing icy-wet in brisk, gusty winds, English teachers proved fierce!
Every year, Mrs. Hooper’s English classes are challenged to raise money for the high school chorus Relay for Life team. The effort is made in honor of Caitlin Hammaren, a Minisink Valley alumnus who was a victim of the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting.
