JROTC FTX AT STOKES FOREST

Posted April 1 at 10:19am

The MVHS JROTC students conducted the second Field Training Exercise (FTX) of the school year from 21 – 23 March in the snow covered Stokes Forest. 25 Students took part in the chilly FTX that was led by the Raider Commander, Cadet Sergeant Christopher Seymour and his Executive Officer (XO) Cadet Sergeant First Class (SFC) Justin Pauley. Cadet 1st Sergeant (1SG) Tyler Beahan was responsible for administering the morning physical fitness training that consisted of a short jog and various calisthenics. Cadet 2nd Lieutenant (2 Lt) Justin Arndt established a tough land navigation course that all the students had to negotiate and complete. Everyone had a great time learning or refreshing their wilderness survival skills, negotiating a rope bridge over a river of rapid water, and playing “Capture the Flag” and “Cat and Mouse.” We look forward to next year’s Fall FTX and building on the skills acquired this year. Good job to students that participated and thanks to everyone who provided support.

JROTC PARTICIPATES IN GOSHEN PARADE AND NFA DRILL COMPETITION

Posted March 17 at 11:14am

The students from the Minisink Valley High School (MVHS) JROTC Program participated in the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade held in Goshen on 16 March 2014. Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrating the death of the patron saint of Ireland. The MVHS students looked and conducted themselves in a professional manner and were recognized and praised for their conduct and spirit. Everyone had a great time and we are looking forward to participating again in the “warmer” years to come. Here is a famous toast in honor of St. Patrick’s Day:

“May the roof above us never fall in, and may we friends beneath it never fall out.”

On 15 March 2014, students from the Minisink Valley High School JROTC participated in the Drill Competition hosted by the Newburgh Free Academy. Over 250 students from 10 schools were present. The competition was tough and had some fierce competitors. The trick drill that took place was very impressive. To truly appreciate the time and commitment involved with these drill competitions we would encourage you to type “JROTC Armed / Unarmed Trick Drill” into the YouTube search to view videos of the precision that is involved with the movements executed by the Cadets. Josh Rivera and Tyler Vanburen showed their Minisink Warrior’s competitive spirit and experience with a 3rd place win in the “Armed Duel” competition. Matthew Russell brought home a 3rd place medal in the knockout competition after beating out over 200 other Cadets. Congratulations to everyone on the Drill Team. They once again showed that the MVHS JROTC Program is a force to be reckoned with. Jen Francois and Angela Sierra competed in the unarmed duel exhibition for the first time and gain the experience and confidence to bring on a trophy in the upcoming Drill Competition in Union City on 05 April 2014.

Minisink Valley High School is proud to present the Broadway classic, GREASE. The setting is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding "Burger Palace Boys" and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking "Pink Ladies" in bobby socks and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950's in this rollicking musical. Head "Greaser" Danny Zuko and new girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'", “Hand Jive”, "We Go Together" and more.  The show is Directed by Mr. Gary Passamonte with musical direction by Mr. Victor Izzo III. It promises to be a crowd pleaser. You may find yourself singing along and dancing in the aisles. Tickets are going fast so order yours now at www.seatyourself.biz/minisink.
