They arrived early, with a spring in their step, and they knew where they were going.

Principal Hauck welcomed the Class of 2021 to the high school family with Minisink pride in its staff and student body, and promising a great place to learn and grow. His first call to action was, “Get involved!” 

Students were reassured that everyone at the high school—administrators, teachers, counselors, secretaries, nurses, custodial and security staff—will be working together to make sure each student is given every opportunity to meet his/her goals in the four years ahead. He also acknowledged the important and fully supportive role of Superintendent of Schools Mr. Monahan, who was present, and the Board of Education.

“You want to learn as much as you can before you leave Minisink Valley. The more opportunities you seize, the more chances you’ll have out in the ‘real world,” Mr. Hauck said. “You are the key to your own success.”

Exciting changes coming their way…

Starting this school year, students will have access to new college electives through Syracuse University. Extra-curricular activities will be enhanced with new opportunities in athletics, and made more accessible with the reinstatement of late bus runs.

The incoming Class of 2021 will yet benefit from the capital project approved by voters in February. Slated to begin in 2018, construction projects at the high school will include a larger, multi-function cafeteria, and repurposed instructional space to accommodate new programs in media production, the culinary arts and computer technology, among others. 

All hands on deck…

With the participation of the assistant principals, orientation covered a wide range of topics, from graduation requirements, to rules and expectations, and lots of helpful advice. Following the assembly, students picked up their locker combinations and enjoyed a tour of their new building—guided by members of the National Honor Society. They had the opportunity to look at their schedules, meet their guidance counselors, and the all-important school secretaries.

A great school year to all!
