Weekly Spotlight On MPHS!

Dr. B's Weekly Update: 12/8/2017

New Staff Spotlight!

Glen Smithberger joined the amazing staff at Manassas Park High School after graduating West Virginia University with a MA in Education and a BA in Mathematics. He’s been pretty lucky this year winning cupcakes for the whole staff compliments of 94.7 Fresh FM and recently assuming a new role as assistant coach for the academic team. He has a twin named Greg who grew up in Ohio and Indiana before moving to “Almost Heaven” West Virginia. Glen is a proud Eagle Scout and spends his free time playing tennis, traveling to see friends, geocaching, running marathons, and playing ultimate Frisbee.


Welcome to MPHS, Mr. Smithberger!

Classroom Spotlight!

What's on the inside? Mr. Cagianelli's students looked on the inside this week, as they dissected worms. Using a project based learning approach, these students worked in groups, formulated questions and sought the answers together. Their hands got a little dirty, but that's what learning is all about!
