THE FISHBOWL PROJECT is swimming onto the scene at MHS!

Her Girl Scout Gold Award, the Fishbowl Project, is looking for students in grades 8-12 to contribute and edit anonymous profiles about what it’s like to live and go to school in Medfield. The goal of the project is to publish a full book of these profiles, but the deadline to get involved is January 17th! Questions can be emailed directly to project staff at thefishbowlprojectGA@gmail.com, or students can talk to Anna in person or contact her directly via her school email (email@example.com).
