All Seniors at Mount Alvernia High School are required to complete a Senior
Symposium project. This project is the culmination of their years of preparation
in English and in history. It consists of a research paper for history,
an analytical paper for English, reflective essays, and a formal oral presentation,
all under the direction of Dr. Melissa Lewis Heim, senior history teacher,
and Miss Eileen McLaughlin, senior English teacher. The students' papers
are bound and become part of the permanent collection in the school library.
Site This Web site presents an overview of the
Symposium papers and Art Thesis. It was created by the senior Advanced Technology
classes, under the direction of Mrs. Tatyana Finegold, technology coordinator
and Mrs. Melissa Kinch, technology instructor.
