Weekly News Update - May 7, 2018

Friday, May 11th is a Teacher Professional Day with an EARLY DISMISSAL time for MHS students of 11:10 am.

Term 4 GRADE BOOKS will OPEN for underclassmen Wednesday, May 9th - Friday, May 11th through the Aspen portal.

FROM THE LIBRARY MEDIA CENTER - The LMC has seen a lot of traffic these past few weeks with senior LARPs and Grade 9 research papers. In addition, the high school makerspace is taking shape. We currently have two button makers, a vinyl cutter, duct tape, puzzles, origami paper, mancala, and hot glue guns. The students are catching on little by little as a makerspace is a new concept for many of our current students. The button maker is definitely a hit! The incoming ninth graders will be familiar with a makerspace as there is already one established in the middle school. 

Don't forget to check out the LMC webpage to read my blog, check out the faculty Pinterest page, and view new titles as well as accessing online books and magazines. http://medfieldhslmc.weebly.com/
