MUFSD Opens with Hybrid and Full-Remote Options: 2020-21 School Year is Off and Running!
Our school doors opened for students for the first time since March, 2020, amid new health and safety guidelines. Despite the challenges, students remain engaged and eager to learn. Teachers have been refining their practices accommodating both in-person and online learners simultaneously.
Creative and Enthusiastic Use of Outdoor Space
If you are around the high school on any given school day, you will come across the MHS drum corps, The Force, practicing outside by Kemper-Memorial Park or the MHS choir rehearsing on the steps of McLain Auditorium. The addition of outdoor music is a plus for anyone passing by. At the elementary schools, teachers are reading to students on the playgrounds, doing art projects in the gardens, and having group conversations in the courtyards. All schools have been taking advantage of the nice weather for outdoor learning.
MHS Art Students Use Open Air Space for Art Foundation, Drawing & Painting Classes
Mamaroneck High School Art Foundation students have spent time on school grounds making rubbings of various textures to create Max Ernst inspired texture collages - a resurrected and retooled lesson with some new additions designed to fit perfectly with the use of open air space and social distancing. Drawing & Painting students are using the outdoors to study atmospheric perspective and draw landscapes.
