GUIDANCE OFFICE NEWS & NOTES
ATTENTION JUNIORS & SENIORS!
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.
The following schools are scheduled the week of 11/16 - 11/20
Monday: Assumption University, University of New England, Thomas College
Tuesday: Johnson & Wales University Providence, Stony Brook University, Worcester
Wednesday: University of California Irvine, Colgate University, IE University Madrid
Thursday: University of Rhode Island, Maine College of Art, University of Maine Machias,
Friday: Franklin Pierce University, Rhode Island College
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!

MHS SITE COUNCIL MEMBERS NEEDED!
Each school building has a Site Council that serves as an advisory board to the principal. The Council consists of parents, school personnel, and sometimes a community member for the purposes of advising the building principal on various issues such as school practices and procedures. The Council also assists with the development of the annual School Improvement Plan. Principal Robert Parga is currently seeking parent members for the 2020-2021 MHS Site Council. Please email him at firstname.lastname@example.org, for further information or if you're interested in running for a position on the MHS Site Council.
