ATTENTION: Families of Medfield...I need your help!
My name is Mimi Orio and I’m currently working on a project in partnership with the Social Emotional Learning (SEL) committee. The goal is to construct a short video showcasing the silver lining of this year. We have all been through so much hardship due to this pandemic and I think highlighting some positives, whether it be spending more time with family, or picking up a new hobby would be a much appreciated breath of fresh air. I am currently a high school senior and because of that I know seniors, and not too many other people. That’s why I need your help!
I have some things in the works with schools already but I would love some submissions from families. I want this video to include the whole community, even parents:) If you feel you would like to be a part of this please send in a brief video answering one or two of your favorites of these questions :
What did you watch?
What did you cook?
Where did you walk?
What did you read?
What did you build?
What did you listen to?
What will you miss about quarantine?
(or anything else you would like to share)
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, if you have any questions or video submissions (Fingers crossed you do ;)) my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
