Back at Minisink Valley

Posted July 2 at 2:25pm

Dear Minisink Valley Community:

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how excited I am to be returning to Minisink Valley as your Superintendent of Schools.  Although away from Minisink Valley for the past five years, I remained very active in our school district and community.  My wife Karen and I have enjoyed living and raising a family here for the past sixteen years.  We are proud parents of three boys who are elementary students in our district.  My oldest will now be moving into the middle school.  Each of our boys has thoroughly enjoyed his time in Minisink.  This is a tribute to all of the employees in the district who consistently make every day special for Minisink students.

Over my nineteen years in education, I had the privilege of serving Minisink Valley for fourteen of them as a social studies teacher, assistant principal and director of personnel.  While I enjoyed the past five years working at Monroe-Woodbury, I missed Minisink.  Our district is a very special place with a dedicated faculty, staff, administration and, most importantly, an outstanding student body.

I look forward to spending time over the summer working with our Board of Education and all of the district stakeholders to plan for this coming school year.  I will spend time visiting our buildings and speaking with members of the district and community to hear their thoughts and ideas about the past and the future.  If you see me around the community, please stop and introduce yourself.  I would love to speak with you.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our retiring Superintendent Jack Latini for his sixteen years of dedicated service to Minisink Valley.  I wish him all the best in his well-deserved retirement.

Finally, I want to thank the Board of Education for entrusting me with this position.  I pledge to the Minisink Valley community all of my efforts to attaining success for all of our students.

 

Yours truly,

Brian C. Monahan

The Chamber Choir performed “On My Home” and “Let Her Go” during the luminary ceremony at the American Cancer Society Relay For Life at Goshen High School.  The event is designed to raise funds for cancer research and to support people fighting the battle against cancer. The chorus sponsored a team, Walk With Caitlin, Fly With Juliette, in memory of 2005 graduate Caitlin Hammaren and 2008 graduate Juliette Lia. The team had over 170 participants.  Thanks to the generosity of the school and community, the team raised over $11,000 for this worthy cause. A special thanks goes out to team captains Rhiannon Tierney, Samantha Musial, Devin Sweeney and all of the parents who attended the event.

SOME FRIENDLY COMPETITION FOR A GOOD CAUSE

Posted June 15 at 12:00am

MVTA faculty and staff participated in some good natured competition to raise money for the Juliette Lia Memorial Scholarship and the Anthony Quinn Memorial Scholarship. The Second Annual Cardboard Boat Race required participants to create a boat constructed with only cardboard and duct tape. A crowd of students looked on as participants raced their boats. Awards were given for the fastest boat and the boat that held the most people (before sinking). Faculty also participated in running races on the MVHS track. Top honors were given to the fastest participants in the 50-yard dash. Thank you to all of the participating MVCSD faculty and staff members. And, special thanks to the students who supported this worthy event.

The High School Chamber Choir, AJROTC Color Guard, and Mrs. O'Connor's second grade class collaborated to create an "opening ceremony" as a culminating activity to the study of the War of 1812.  The Color Guard presented the colors, the Chamber Choir sang the Star Spangled Banner, and Mrs. O'Connor's class recited The Pledge of Allegiance.  The second grade students shared interesting facts about the war and composition of the Star Spangled Banner.  These types of collaborations make learning relevant and memorable for all of the participants.
