On June 20, Mineola learners, teachers, administrators and board of education members gathered to cut a ceremonial ribbon and celebrate the grand opening of Café at Synergy, a student-run coffeehouse that located at the Synergy building.

From the initial business plan to branding, design and training, learners from Mineola High School’s Synergy program have been involved with every aspect of this new venture. During the upcoming school year, the café will be open to students and faculty during each weekday and staffed exclusively by Synergy learners.

As a part of the Business Pathway, learners will gain valuable management and customer service skills, while having fun, making money and providing a service to their school community. This innovative program is a shining example of the Board of Education’s commitment to provide real learning opportunities that truly make our students college and career ready.

8th & 9th Grade Drama Club Wows with Shrek the Musical

Shrek the Musical photo thumbnail259198

Congratulations to the MHS 8th and 9th grade Drama Club who took audiences on a fantastically fun ride to the swamp and back with their performances of Shrek the Musical, Jr.

The young actors sang and danced their hearts out, nailed every joke and found the perfect balance of comedic charm and dramatic emotion that we know and love from the classic films.

As if you needed more, the colorful costumes, whimsical sets and a dramatic backdrop transported you to the forest and made it abundantly clear how much time, effort and talent went into this final Mineola performance on the school year.

From the first notes to the final curtain call, every element of this performance was top notch and received rave reviews from young and old!

We are #MineolaProud of the cast and crew who brought Shrek and his friends to life and reminded us how much joy live theatre can bring.

MMS Hosts Professional Jazz Artist for Master Class and Jam Session

On May 14, professional jazz artist Benny Benack visited Mineola Middle School for a jazz workshop and performance with middle and high school Jazz Band and Big Band ensembles.

Each group participated in a Master Class with Mr. Benack, performing their prepared pieces for him, including classic compositions from Charlie Parker, Charles Trenet and Irving Berlin. Each group received guidance and feedback that will help them move to a higher level of excellence.

Following the workshops, the three groups joined together on-stage with Mr. Benack for a jam session over a blues standard titled "Bag's Groove" by Milt Jackson. This large-scale improvisation allowed students at an individual and group level to be creative and spontaneous in their music making, while Mr. Benack was able to give tips and tricks to taking their improv to new and creative levels.

"Improvisation is an aspect of jazz that demands vulnerability as you create something new and spontaneous,” remarked Mineola Middle School Band Director Zach St. John. “Benny did an incredible job creating a space that allowed for creativity and support so our students were confident in their risk taking. A skill that every musician needs to learn, especially in the genre of jazz!"
