STUDENTS VISUALIZE DR. KING'S POWERFUL WORDS AND LEGACY

Posted January 12 at 3:37pm

“Dream” is perhaps the word most associated with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but his message of non-violence and philosophical principles centered around many other powerful words.

 

In honor of Dr. King’ birthday celebration on Monday, Jan. 15, eighth grade students in Nicole Saunders ceramics class sculpted and painted words representing Dr. King’s 6 Principles and 6 Steps of Nonviolence.

 

Before attempting to express Dr. King’s teachings in a visual way, each student, or team of students, focused on one single principle to arrive at a single powerful word that embodies its meaning.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT MONAHAN

Posted January 11 at 9:07pm

Around 5:30 p.m. today, Thursday, Jan. 11, a late-run bus transporting students home was involved in an accident at the intersection of county route 93 and route 284. All 10 students on the bus are safe. The driver of the bus was transported by ambulance to the hospital and has since been released. The district immediately contacted the students’ parents after the accident occurred, and all students aboard the bus were released to their families.

We would like to thank the Slate Hill Fire Department, New York State Police and Mobile Life for their prompt response and assistance. 

STUDENTS PRESENT COLLABORATIVE ART PROJECT TO BOE

Posted January 11 at 1:17pm

Something new and beautiful is shining bright on the walls of our district's Board room, as of last night when MVHS students in Mrs. Tangney's adapted art program presented a gift to the Board of Education.

 

The Collaborative Collage Mural was a project specifically designed to build team-working skills. Using a leaf-shaped cutout, students lifted many a paper leaf off of colorful magazine pages. One by one, following a color progression, they assembled the leaves to create a striking flower-like collage.
