Photos of the Week: Prom Pics!
First things first: HERE is the link to all of the pics taken by MPH alum and MPH photographer of record, Chuck Wainwright. Chuck says he is happy to share with the MPH community, so download away.

The prom took place this year at Springside Farms in Fabius, home to a gorgeous barn, pedal karts, a giant zip line, a cool corn maze in the fall, giant Akbash dogs to guard the sheep and alpaca flocks, and this year some sweet dance moves.

The MPH Gala: A Successful Return
After two years without a gala, the 2022 edition was a fantastic success, with the weather cooperating perfectly for an evening at Owera Vineyards in Cazenovia that raised more than $135,000 to support educational opportunities at MPH! Linked above is a video produced for the gala celebrating our wonderful teachers and teaching culture. And below, LS teachers joined the fun for the evening. Look for a full complement of pics from our photographer and alum, Chuck Wainwright, in the coming weeks.

Got an Old Fridge? The Science Department Would Love it
The Science Department is in need of a fridge/freezer. They do not want or need water, ice, etc. Gently used is fine. The current fridge is more than 20 years old, so what's needed is a basic update. It would be used to keep samples and biological materials cold. It does not need to be very big, either. 
Two Boys Golfers Headed to State Qualifier
The boys golf team competed in the sectional qualifier at the Pompey Club this week, with Tommy and James Wildhack moving on to Wednesday’s state qualifier at the Skenandoa Club in Clinton. Pictured from left to right are Nick Trivelpiece, James Wildhack, Tommy Wildhack, Andy Wladis, Owen Sacks, and Dash Goode.
MPH's Own Wishtree
This month in Life Science, Ms. Bonacorsi's Grade 7 students read Katherine Applegate's Wishtree. Ms. Berry, Ms. Salomon, and Ms. Keser were kind enough to also do a read aloud of the book with their Grade 3 and Grade 4 students so the Grade 7 students could use the book to design and deliver lessons in ecology to their students. 
Wishtree is a book with an unusual narrator: Red, a 216-year-old Red Oak Tree. Red is the neighborhood Wishtree; every May, people hang their wishes for things big and small on Red's branches. At the end of our unit, our students made their own Wishtree for MPH a tree right next to the playground out front. 
Wishtree is a book about community, inclusivity, and the relationship between humans and the environment; it is available in our library if you'd like to check it out! 
Just Add Wind
Students in Ms. LaPointe's Geometry class took advantage of some breezy conditions this week to test out kites they'd been designing using principles they'd studied in class.
Physics Students Share Knowledge and Hands-On Learning with Grade 6
Ms. Magagnoli’s physics students selected, as their culminating project, a topic from their studies and prepared an interactive workshop for Ms. Foster’s sixth-grade scientists this week. Across two days, sixth graders rotated through five student-created workshops during which they learned about angular momentum, pendulum wave forms, and sound wave interactions. The event was rich with hands-on experiences, deep conversation, and simple scientific awe. The concept grew from a brainstorming conversation weeks ago between Ms. Magagnoli and Ms. Foster regarding a meaningful culminating event for the physics students.
