Congratulations to the M.V.M.S. students who participated in raising brown trout this year. The fingerling trout were released into a nearby stream on Wednesday, June 4th and seem to be very happy in their new environment.  Approximately 100 brown trout eggs were collected in September and cared for throughout the school year.

STUDENTS MAKE PILLOWS USING ANCIENT FORM OF ART

Posted May 11 at 10:16pm

Batik is both an art and a craft, which is becoming more popular and well known as a wonderfully creative medium. The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practiced for centuries. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot.  Mrs. Morais’ 8th Grade Art class designed, dyed, and assembled the pillows seen in the accompanying picture.  These students did a wonderful job and were proud of their work, as was Mrs. Morais.
