FROM THE YEARBOOK STAFF - We know this is a busy time of year, so we have decided to extend the deadline to design/purchase baby ads for the 2018 yearbook. The new deadline is FRIDAY, January 19. It is a fun tradition for families of MHS seniors to design/purchase baby ads to honor their soon-to-be graduates, and we want to make sure there is ample time to click on the following link and complete the process:
CASH FOR YOUR TRASH! There is a box top collecting box in the main office of the High School. Although high schools are not able to receive the money from box top collections, the middle and elementary schools will be able to benefit. So please send in any box tops you have lying around and perhaps keep a ziplock bag in the kitchen to collect new ones. Then send them in every so often and they will be collected and given to the other schools. Thank you so much for your support.
Medfield High School’s Term 3 begins on Wednesday, January 24th. It is anticipated that Term 2 report cards will be visible on Aspen after school on Tuesday, January 30th..
