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.
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.
