Celebrating MasterMinds Success!:
Students at Moravia High School put their brains to the test and came out on top during a November MasterMinds tournament, qualifying them for nationals this spring.
Masterminds advisor Tyler Miller said he was thrilled to see Moravia students qualify for nationals once again and noted that the support from the district and community has been amazing.
“We graduated two-thirds of our team this past year, so I wasn't sure what we would have coming into this year. However, the returning students have really stepped up and our new members have been wonderful additions to the team. I am so excited to see what our great students at Moravia can do when facing the best small schools, the nation has to offer,” said Miller.

SUNY Potsdam A Capella Visits Moravia!:
This morning the female a cappella group from SUNY Potsdam known as A Sharp Arrangement came to perform for many of Moravia's singers. Students in grades 6th-12th chorus got the opportunity to watch their performance which featured many contemporary a cappella songs. Following the performance the High School Choralaires participated in a workshop with the girls from the group. Students divided up into sections to learn the song "Light On" and then came together as a group to perform with the college students. It was an engaging and positive experience for all students involved.

Living on Mars:
Moravia Middle School science teacher Megan Newhouse is hoping to get her seventh-grade students to work, think and act like scientists.
Newhouse’s class is learning about living on Mars, with the goal of the project being to find ways humans could survive on the planet. Several student-groups are focusing on growing food through either hydroponics or aquaponics (hydroponics with fish in the water), while others are focusing on topics such as rovers, energy production, and life support systems.
For example, one group is hoping to show how the carbon and oxygen cycle would work on Mars. The plan is to create an emergency carbon dioxide venting system that will flush excess carbon dioxide from the living spaces if it gets too high. ...
