MCS OVA Students Place Again!
On April 6, the MCS middle and high school art teachers, Mrs. Katy DiBenedetto and Ms. Michele Dietz, took a group of 6th-12th Grade students to NYSATA's 35th Annual Olympics of Visual Arts in Saratoga Springs. Students presented their projects that they've been working on all year and competed in on-the-spot challenges; they were judged on both and given a composite score. MCS is proud to announce that MCS teams brought back the following awards:
Elementary Photography 2nd place: Anna Greene, Breanna Miller, Monica Tapia, Ashley Camano, Autumn Korr, and Seanna Paige.
Middle School Fashion Design 3rd place: Olivia Balcom, Hailey Maggio, Angeles Sarabia, and Cynthia Torres
