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.
