The Congressional Art Competition is an annual competition open to high school students and held each spring as an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation as well as in each congressional district. This year, several of our students submitted pieces, but Cadet Captain Tingjia Tao was awarded a runner-up position and her art will be displayed in the Congressional Offices in Harrisonburg.
Massanutten Military Academy has a robust STEM curriculum which allows the cadets to gain hands-on experience with tasks and experiments. As part of the Middle School Life Science Class this year, the cadets (comprised of 6th - 8th graders) began a garden.
The Faculty/Staff vs. Cadet games continued yesterday with a game of volleyball in Memorial Gymnasium. The Faculty Team was small but worked together in harmony to clinch yet another win in the series.
Every year after sports is finished, the cadets take on the faculty and staff in a series of intramural games. This year, we kicked off this tradition with a game of basketball which resulted in an 89-61 victory for the Faculty/Staff Team.
Tuesday afternoon, twenty of our cadets were inducted into the National Art Honor Society. NAHS is an organization that recognizes students in good academic standing who show talent in an art. Many of our students displayed their artwork during our Founder's Day Weekend Academic Fair and received high praise from the parents and alumni present.
