MVMS SPRING CHORUS CONCERT: TUESDAY, MAY 29, 7PM

Posted May 25 at 8:00am

The Middle School Chorus Program is proud to present its spring concert on Tuesday, May 29, at 7 p.m. 
You can expect a lively song selection, three choruses, two select choirs, many soloists--and a splash of color!

“Student engagement in chorus is largely about self-expression,” Band Director Pasqua Ventre said. “In that spirit, band students will be wearing black and personalize it with a splash of a color of their own choice.”

Join us for an exciting and colorful evening of song, and applaud our students’ talent and hard work. (Additional Photos)

VAPING 101: WHAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD KNOW

Posted May 23 at 2:15pm

There are hundreds of e-cigarette brands on the market, and they are now the most commonly used tobacco products among youth. Middle and high school students are increasingly using these battery-operated devices, often marketed as a healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes, to inhale nicotine, THC and various synthetic chemicals.

 

And that has health officials – and school officials – worried.

 

Inhaling liquid nicotine is concerning on its own, but vaping unknown and potentially more dangerous and damaging substances is even more so, they say – and parents need to be on the alert. To help families communicate with their students about this concerning health risk, we are sharing information researched and compiled by Capital Region BOCES School Communications Portfolio. The information that follows is also available as a printable flyer.
