Due to COVID-19, Medfield High School will NOT be hosting in-person visits this fall. We will be scheduling virtual visits for this fall every weekday after school from 2:00-3:00 PM. Sessions will be 20 minutes. This transition to virtual visits facilitates the opportunity for more college representatives to meet with Medfield students. Please log on to your Naviance account and sign up for the virtual sessions you are interested in. Virtual visits will start the week of September 29th
The following schools are scheduled the week of 11/9-11/13:
Monday: Simmons University, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences,
Tuesday: University of Alabama, University of Toronto, United States Air Force
Thursday: Framingham State University, Ithaca College, Ohio Wesleyan University
Friday: Saint Anselm’s College, Becker College, University of Massachusetts-Amherst
The deadline has passed on senior portraits, senior bios, and senior "Can You Imagine" submissions, but now is a great time for families and friends to order/design recognition ads (AKA baby ads) to honor the graduating seniors. Jostens, in charge of that online process, has set the deadline for January 31. Here is the link: https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/ybAdDesigner/1549546/-/2020070904243269054/CATALOG_SHOP/. If you have any questions, please let Jostens know. Their recognition ad phone line is 800-358-0800.
On a separate note, if you have any photos you can submit to fit certain themes (senior sunsets at Hospital Hill, freshman fun outside of school, grade-by-grade random candids during the past several months, and senior throwbacks), please label them as such and upload them via this private link: https://images.jostens.com/415464605. If you get a screen asking you for a User ID, type in this number: 415464605.
Finally, if you want to order a copy of the yearbook, please use this link: http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A01095588. Thanks in advance for your support!

"Soup is healing; in this age of Covid, all methods of healing and building a strong immune system are vital to your well-being. " - Peg Doyle
The Hannah Adams Woman's Club is the longest continuously-running women's club in America. It was inspired by Medfield resident Hannah Adams (1755-1831) who ran a similar group during her lifetime and who was the first woman in America to earn a living as a professional writer. HAWC is committed to supporting women and the community. For more information about the club, its activities, and/or the scholarship fund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit @hannahadamswomansclub on Facebook.
