About the MVHS Tech Knight Internship A student-led technology help desk will be open during lunch periods. Tech Knights will be provided a space to sit during lunch and provide support to students. This may include basic troubleshooting (like restarting a device, checking wi-fi issues, or helping students put in tech support tickets if no resolution can be reached.) This internship is open to grade 10-12 scholars. THE IMPORTANCE OF AN INTERNSHIP The importance of an internship cannot be over emphasized. For a high school student, an internship can make you stand out in the college admissions process and enable you to make more informed decisions about your future.

Two eighth graders at the Grimes School will have their artworks published nationally by Celebrating Art, a contest “devoted to the promotion and appreciation of student-created art.”
For Chelsea Phaire, art was a way to ease sorrow at a difficult time. When her grandfather passed away, she was encouraged to create a drawing of him, which was inserted in the elder relative’s pocket when he was buried. Since then, she has drawn enormous benefits from practicing art, and they are gifts she shares with everyone she can. A former Mount Vernon resident who is now in the seventh grade, she visited Cecil H. Parker School bringing bags of art supplies for second and third graders, and then led 20 students in an art class.
