MHS YEARBOOK 

Happy New Year! The yearbook staff has been hard at work for months, creating and submitting pages in batches to Jostens. This process will continue until everything is ready in mid May. If you haven't yet pre-ordered your copy of the yearbook, please do so! It is available at a discounted rate of $95 until the end of January, at which point the cost will go up to $100. Here is the link: http://www.jostensyearbooks.com/. If you haven't yet designed/purchased a recognition ad (otherwise known as a baby ad) for a graduating senior, please do so! It has become a special tradition for families to acknowledge their soon-to-be graduates via baby ads. That deadline is February 13. Here is the link: https://www.jostens.com/apps/shop/yrbk_ra_flash.asp?CID=270741&PFID=20190619041521990169.  We really appreciate your interest and support!

Clay Club presents Empty Bowls, a collaborative community dinner of soup and bread to raise money for Medfield Food Cupboard. A $25 ticket bought in advance gets you dinner along with two pottery classes to create a bowl to eat dinner out of and bring home with you. No time to make your own bowl? Choose a bowl, handmade by local artisans, fill it with delicious soup donated by local restaurants, and take your bowl home with you! All ages welcome!


BOX TOPS for Education

Please keep sending in your box tops.  Although the program is changing over to individuals scanning receipts there are still some box tops on products that can be clipped and sent in. You can drop them off at the HS front office box, Blake front office box,  the window sill box at Shaws or the magazine room box at the library. 

All the money collected from these collection boxes benefits Blake Middle School as high schools are not able to receive the money. Thank you very much.

Any questions contact LizSandeman@gmail.com
