CNY STEM Fair | MPH will be representing the School at the CNY STEM Fair on Sunday, held at the MOST this year instead of the SRC Arena at OCC.

Quarter Four Starts | The last quarter of the year begins Monday. Let's make it a great one!

Tuesday, March 29
It's Waffle Day! | Quite often we take the time on our internal TV screens to highlight the great work of Chef Christine Lowe and the Brock crew in our cafeteria. Adding "The Week Ahead" to Snapshot gives us a chance to do that here, on occasion, too. And what better day to choose than Belgian Waffle Day! There's also hash browns, corned beef hash, turkey sausage, pork sausage, and, as always, vegan options and the salad and sandwich bars. That's a proper diner meal.

Wednesday, March 30

Future Date of Note
NEW DATE for LS Spring Concert | The Lower School Spring Concert for Grades 1-5 now will be held Friday, June 3, at 8:30 a.m. in the gym. This is a CHANGE IN DATE. Families are welcome to attend.
MPH Photos of the Week
It was a big week last week for MPH visual arts field trips. Elemental Studio went to the Everson and spoke with a curator about how the museum chooses art and artists for shows, and how one becomes a curator. Students also got to see a show being installed. 
Photography 2/3 went to the Metro Wastewater Treatment plant and learned about the water-treatment process. Students were able to shoot in different locations throughout the plant with several different lighting scenarios. 
Grade 8 also went to the Everson to see a show and got a tour through the museum. Students loved the new installation and the architecture designed by I.M. Pei.
Intro to Photo traveled to Clark Reservation in Dewitt twice during the week to work on getting a range of values in their landscape photography. 
The Reenrollment Deadline Has Passed
As you likely are aware, the deadline to reenroll was yesterday, March 24. Enormous thanks to those families (over 90 percent!) who confirmed with us their plans for next school year. If by chance you missed the deadline and still wish to have your child(ren) reenroll for the fall, please make every effort to submit the appropriate forms online by this MONDAY (March 28), as next week the Admissions Office plans to extend a first round of offers of admission to new applicant families. 
Again, please contact Admissions as soon as possible if there are extenuating circumstances that make reenrollment difficult. 
… and a FINAL Reminder about District Busing 
Separately, if you are planning to use public district busing for the 2022-2023 school year, you must submit a request to your home district by next Friday, April 1, unless you reside in the Syracuse City district (the SCSD requires MPH to submit requests on behalf of enrolled families). Please visit the Transportation webpage for additional information.

MPH's "Singing Calculators"
Much to the delight of their teachers and Texas Instruments themselves, a few Grade 6 students at MPH were able to code their calculators linked up with a computer to play "Snake Charmer" by calculating the frequency and duration of notes.
MS Students Take to the Halls with STEM Fair Projects

The Middle School STEM Fair took over the hallways around the gym this week, with a plethora of projects ranging from the audio experiences of dogs to the effects of climate change. This Sunday, a large group of Middle School students and four Upper School students will compete in the Central New York Science and Engineering Fair at the MOST.
