Posted June 5 at 3:51pm

The voices of Minisink Valley's chorus students rose together at the 2nd Annual District Choral Festival, on June 2, at the Intermediate School.

 

Sharing the MVIS stage were the High School Chamber Choir, the 6th Grade Choir, the Otisville 4th and 5th grade Choir, the Intermediate School 5th Grade Choir – and their respective directors: Ms. Cornacchio, Mrs. Hughes, Mr. Bradley, and Mr. Izzo. Each choir performed one selection for all the others, and the event concluded with a combined performance of "Better When I'm Dancin'."

 

This unique experience is especially meaningful for younger students. They can’t wait to hear the high school choir, and are beyond excited to sing along with them.

There is nothing like artifacts and physical places to connect us to history and historic figures.

 

What revealing small objects might a famous president have kept on his desk? What landscape did he look upon from his office window, as he pondered his most consequential decisions?

 

Culminating a social studies unit on the dramatic era of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency – including the Great Depression and World War II – Minisink’s eighth graders enjoyed a visit to the FDR Presidential Library & Museum in Hyde Park.
