Around 5:30 p.m. today, Thursday, Jan. 11, a late-run bus transporting students home was involved in an accident at the intersection of county route 93 and route 284. All 10 students on the bus are safe. The driver of the bus was transported by ambulance to the hospital and has since been released. The district immediately contacted the students’ parents after the accident occurred, and all students aboard the bus were released to their families.

Something new and beautiful is shining bright on the walls of our district's Board room, as of last night when MVHS students in Mrs. Tangney's adapted art program presented a gift to the Board of Education.

 

The Collaborative Collage Mural was a project specifically designed to build team-working skills. Using a leaf-shaped cutout, students lifted many a paper leaf off of colorful magazine pages. One by one, following a color progression, they assembled the leaves to create a striking flower-like collage.
