The first of four chairs created by students in Ms. Shoquist’s Drawing and Painting classes has arrived! Designed by Gabby Hoxie and Hannah Kim (class of 2015). How awesome is that?
Come by and check out the exhibit created by Ms. Weintraub’s Global History Class.
As of today, all students and faculty have their own personal Questia School accounts!
Great news! We now have a subscription to Lynda.com. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s an online learning platform for learning a wide-range of subjects, including business, technology, software, and creativity skills. If you’re the type of person who likes to think and learn (hopefully you are), it’s worth checking out!
We’re now subscribing to the archive of The New York Times (1851-2007). Reproduced by ProQuest, it includes full-text, full-image newspapers that date back to the first issue. Every newspaper issue is reproduced, cover-to-cover, in full-page digital images—from news stories and editorials to graphics and advertisements!
On any given school day, students are reading, researching, and writing. We are also actively building projects, shooting video, recording podcasts and music, prototyping with 3D printing, presenting TED-style talks, coding, and inventing in the MVRHS library. We are working alone and in groups of all sizes. We can’t do all of these well in the space that we have. We need up-to-date learning spaces that the whole school can use. This is our vision for a Global Learning Center.
The assignment: if you were going to show a stranger to Martha’s Vineyard something about the island, what would you share? Bhrenda Galdino, Gabriel Silva, Jessica Medeiros, Sayra Fernandes, and Thifane Souza took these photos. A few are below, and the rest are on Instagram. Enjoy!
