IMAGINE, DESIGN, BUILD: THE JOY OF MAKING STUFF

Posted November 13 at 4:01pm

MVHS's Design & Drawing for Production course attracts students for an array of reasons, but they all share one thing in common: they love to make stuff!

 

Currently, in Mr. Mink and Mr. Tuthill’s classes, students are making personalized signs from hardwood. The process involves the application of basic math concepts, learning to practice safe construction as they move through various shop-based operations, and using automation technology (laser engraving).

 

They start with a rough cut of poplar wood and mill it into workable stock using the planer and joiner. Next, they move on to the table saw and compound miter saw to cut the stock to size, according to their design specifications.

MVHS CHORUS STUDENT RECOGNIZED BY NYSSMA

Posted November 13 at 3:04pm

CONGRATULATIONS to senior Matthew Goetz, selected by the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) as an alternate for the organization’s prestigious, state-wide music festival.

 

Matthew, a chorus and band member, was one of many at MVHS – and one of thousands across New York – to audition for the state-level All-State competition last May. On the trombone, he scored an impressive 97, but his voice solo earned him a perfect 100 score and All-State alternate status.

 

“I was very encouraged when I learned I was selected. I put in a lot of work on my own to prepare for that audition, so it felt good! It made me realize my own potential,” Matthew said.
