HOLIDAY CARDS FOR SOLDIERS

For the third year, MVCSD schools have participated in the Cards and Letters for Soldiers campaign.  Students from Otisville Elementary and Minisink Elementary created more than 300 unique handwritten cards and letters for our soldiers.  These efforts were led by Art teacher Mrs. Welsh and Music teacher Mr. Loretto.  The Intermediate School, Middle School, and High School have plans to continue this initial effort.  

Thank you to all of the teachers and students who participated in this worthy project.  Mrs. Becky Olah and the American Legion Kids’ Club labeled and packaged the cards.  The American Legion Auxiliary of George Smith Post 1607 from Unionville, NY provided the postage. Thank you.

The Minisink Valley school community offers sincere gratitude and warm holiday wishes to the men and women who are serving in the Armed Forces.

HOUR OF CODE

Many Minisink Valley students participated in Hour of Code, a world-wide event.  The Hour of Code was launched to raise awareness for computer science and provide opportunities for children and adults to learn the fundamentals of coding.  Students used a variety of apps and websites which began with simple tasks and scaffolded to more advanced activities.  All of the tasks required ordering, analysis, and logical thinking which are important problem solving skills.
