MHS Theatre Society Presents: The Curious Savage by John Patrick with performances FRIDAY-SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15 - 17. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE NOW! You may Purchase Tickets Here.

Here is a brief synopsis of the story:
Following her husband’s death, Ethel Savage inherited $10 million. Ethel’s goal is to use the family fortune to fulfill strangers’ ill-advised dreams. Her stepchildren’s goal is to reclaim the Savage legacy. In their efforts to bring Ethel to her senses, the Savage children have her committed to a sanitorium: The Cloisters. Among the Cloisters’ residents, Mrs. Savage discovers a level of authenticity she found lacking in the outside world.

MHS PTO UPDATE
FALL APPEAL - Thank you to all that have already donated. We appreciate it! There is still time to donate on-line with our NEW website www.medfieldhspto.com or write a check made payable to MHS PTO and return to the main office with the yellow Fall Appeal form you received on the first day of school. Your donation helps enrich academic, athletic and extracurricular activities for all MHS students. Unlike grades K-8, we do not participate in fundraisers to obtain our funding, we only ask once a school year, during the Fall Appeal, for your donation.
SNACK SHACK COORDINATORS NEEDED (2020-2021 Volunteer Opportunity)
We are looking for two or more people to manage the concession stand at the MHS turf. You can split the duties making it a fun and easy volunteer experience. This is great to do with a friend or group of friends. This is a volunteer opportunity.
Opening the concession in the Fall & Spring
Closing the concession at the end of each season
Coordinating volunteers for games, shopping for food and supplies at BJ’s
Meeting volunteers at the concession before each game and showing them what to do. Stay and support the volunteers if necessary.
Count money after each game and make a deposit into the PTO account within a day or two.
The total time commitment depends on how many people work together, but you can expect to spend between 2-5 hours for each game which includes shopping and running the concession. Fall games are typically every other week with a total of 6-7 in the season. Spring playoff games are in late May, early June, and require 2-4 hours each. One person coordinating everything alone can expect to spend about 30 hours in the Fall and about 12 hours in the spring total. With a friend or friends you can divide and conquer reducing commitment times in half or more. Please contact Sue Finn email@example.com with any questions.
DESIGN CONTEST: PEP RALLY T-SHIRT - Students have the opportunity to design the PEP RALLY t-shirt this year. Submissions are due to Mrs. Drew (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 7th.
