HAVE NO FEAR: RHETORIC IS HERE!

Posted March 19 at 1:37pm

On Friday, February 20th, students in Mr. Bond's and Mrs. Lalor's sophomore Honors English classes concluded their unit on rhetorical devices and sentence structure.  As a culminating project, the students worked in groups to solicit assistance from various superheroes.  Each group delivered an impassioned speech consisting of varied sentence types and persuasive techniques studied in the course including ethos, pathos, logos, anamnesis, anaphora, and antithesis.  The classes had the opportunity to use costumes, props, and of course, posters to campaign for the help of a specific superhero.  It was an engaging way for everyone to participate in an interactive assessment.

JROTC MARCHES IN GOSHEN PARADE

Posted March 19 at 9:36am

The students from the Minisink Valley High School (MVHS) JROTC Program participated in the annual Saint Patrick’s Day Parade held in Goshen on March 15, 2015. 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.”

Previously, on March, 14 2015, the Minisink Valley JROTC Battalion competed in the Newburgh Free Academy Drill Competition. More than 10 other JROTC Programs were there to compete with us. For the cadets, it was a great time to spend with one another, learning from other schools, and even getting to know cadets from other battalions. Lastly, the Warrior Battalion would like to thank all of the parents for their support in the JROTC program and cheering Minisink on at the latest competition.

HIGH SCHOOL BOOK CLUB VISITS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Posted March 13 at 4:12pm

The High School Book Club enjoyed their 2nd annual visit to the elementary school on Monday, March 9th, 2015 to celebrate Read Across America, in celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday.  The MVTV Club was also on hand to film the event and capture all of the excitement! 

The high school students dressed up in their most "Dr. Seuss-like" costumes and read to each of the classes in kindergarten through 2nd grade. They shared their love of reading and their love of the beloved classic children's books  written by Dr. Seuss with students in kindergarten through 2nd grade.  They ended their classroom visits by giving out stickers and bookmarks to the elementary students.

A fun, silly, rhyming time was had by all!  This is a tradition that is enjoyed by both the high school and the elementary students, and they are already looking forward to next year!

Congratulations to Richard Wierzbicki-McMickle, a Minisink Valley HS Senior and Nicholas Maurer of Warwick Valley HS for their first-place win at the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association (GNYADA) statewide competition.

Richie and Nicholas will now compete in the the National Competition to be held at the Javits Convention Center in NYC on April 7 and 8 during their annual car show. For the national competition they were assigned a BMW vehicle and will start practicing at Orange County BMW to prepare for this final competition.

We are proud of these talented young men and wish them good luck as they gear up for the Nationals.
