Biomedical Research & Process Partnership between MVCDS & UT
Maumee Valley Country Day School and the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences have created a unique partnership that allows high school students to participate in authentic, on-going research within the HOSS program (Health Outcomes and Socioeconomic Sciences) of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. Headed by Dr. Sharrel Pinto, division head of HOSS and director of the Pharmaceutical Care and Outcomes Research (PCOR) laboratory and Brandon Slotterbeck, Maumee Valley Upper School science faculty and former research analyst within the UT College of Pharmacy, the goal of this program is to allow students to experience current, 21st century research methods inside actual working research laboratories and higher educational facilities.

Maumee Valley is happy to announce auditions for our fall production of The Lost Boy. This performance opportunity is open to students grades seven through twelve. The play, which opened off Broadway in 2005, is a fictionalized retelling of the origin story of Peter Pan. In the show, playwright JM Barrie returns to his childhood home and mother to confront the loss of his older brother as a youth. By recognizing his deceased brother as "the boy who would never grow up" Barrie begins to weave the tale of Neverland. Ten actors will take on twenty-three roles and travel from the Scottish Highlands, passed the second star on the right, and straight on to Neverland.
