Posted on 08/19/2018
This is the image for the news article titled What a BUSY Summer at STMHS!Summer vacation at STMHS has been filled with programs, learning and activities. These have included:
  • HOSA - Three STMHS students: Annette Park, Ella Cook and Zach Skrabacz competed in the International Conference that was held in Dallas. All fifty states and the countries of Canada, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, China and more were present. There were over 10,000 students at the conference. They had an excellent experience and we look forward to their continued success in HOSA competitions.
  • Our incoming Class of 2022 attended classes at the school along with team building activities. By the end of the 10 days our freshman were at home in their new surroundings and are eager for September classes to begin.
  • Our CT-ECO program continued their learning for three weeks with Three Rivers courses for credit.
  • Our LIFT Academy took on a new role this year as a mentor development training that will be connected to our new STEMentorMe program that starts in the fall.
  • We welcomed students from China as a part of the Integrated American Diploma Program. This program is a 4 week summer program and will earn our fellow Chinese students credits from not only STMHS but also area colleges.
  • Tim Allen conducted a music program including for STMHS students as well as our Chinese visitors.
  • Our SPIRAL camp continued with an additional group of Chinese students staying with New London host families for 10 days. They were immersed in Connecticut culture and activities.
  • STMHS student Essoha Kadambaya traveled to Texas and attended the Black Pilots of America Summer Flight Academy. 
  • STMHS student Alexandria DeGundia a rising sophomore, attended Senior Leadership school in Camp Rilea Oregon this summer, doing land navigation through the Oregon woods, obstacle courses and motivational runs to the Pacific Ocean. Upon her return she then went to Washington DC and Virginia on the Great American History Adventure which included the changing of the guard, holocaust museum, all of the monuments, the Marine Corp Museum, the DEA Museum and much more!!
  • STMHS student Sara Beth Bouchard atended the Natural Resources Conservation Academy at Storrs. The Natural Resources Conservation Academy (NRCA) is an innovative program in conservation and land use planning that engages Connecticut high school students, adult conservation volunteers and teachers with conservation efforts at the community level. NRCA’s three interconnected efforts (below) benefit students and adults by conducting education on natural resource management and geospatial technology, and facilitating the use of these new skills in the implementation of local conservation projects that benefit the community.
  • Many STMHS students have begun their college explorations and applications. Our very own Noah Lucien has already received early admission acceptance to Roanke College in Virginia. We know that many more accolades will be coming in for our students.

We hope that as you look through these photo albums the smiles and enthusiasm demonstrated in the pictures will convey the success of our students and these worthwhile summer activities.
