MMCSD eighth grade students Shawntez Brown, Ben Canary, Addison DiPasquale, Damien Michaels, Bella Oddo and Ethan VanAernam participated in the New York State YMCA Youth and Government Conference in Albany. Following three months of preparation, students from across the state attend this 3-day experiential learning program in which they serve as part of a model state government debating bills they and their peers have written. “This conference is a scaffold for leadership. Students defend their ideas with the assistance from past high school attendees on the first day, then travel to the capital and formally debate throughout the morning and into the early evening. This is done in the state assembly, senate and committee chambers. It’s a very rewarding experience for the members who attend!” said Mr. Gardner, who accompanied the students on the trip. These photos were taken at the Senate Chambers and during the presentation of the bill.
Congratulations to our first quarter High Honor and Honor Roll students!
Our fifth grade classes celebrated a very special “friendsgiving” today! Students enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner prepared by their teachers. The fifth grade teachers also made each student a decorative plate with their name and a reason they are thankful for them!
Enjoy these pictures from our Fall Play, “Appropriate Audience Behavior”. From texting (or as the performers called it, “talksting”), crinkling chip bags, spilling food, sword fighting, arguing and more, this comedy certainly was not an example of appropriate audience behavior! The play was a lot of fun to watch and our Drama Club students wish to thank everyone who came out to support them!
This year's Thanksgiving Dinner Program was a success! We were able to provide 68 Thanksgiving baskets for Mount Morris families in need. Thank you to all who donated to make this possible. A special thanks to Wegmans, the Mount Morris Central School Wellness Program, Kiwanis, Mount Morris students, staff and community members!
Our Fall Play, “Appropriate Audience Behavior”, will premiere tomorrow, November 18th! There will also be a performance on Saturday, November 19th. Showtime is 7:00 pm for both days and the admission is $5.00. Our Drama Club students performed a pre-show for their classmates and teachers and judging by the crowd participation and laughter, you will not want to miss out on seeing this comedy act!
