SENIOR RECOGNITION VIRTUAL AWARDS PROGRAM
Medfield High School will be having a Virtual Awards Program this year, combining our Senior Recognition Night and our Class Day events. During this program, all scholarships and outside awards will be presented along with recognitions for students' outstanding academic achievements and contributions to Medfield High School. We have collaborated again this year with Medfield TV and are tentatively planning on airing the presentation on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. The presentation will air on the Medfield TV Education Channel, as well as the Medfield TV website. The YouTube link will be available and shared after the event is presented. We will be forwarding the specifics regarding the exact date and time as soon as it is confirmed.
The Rolling Rally and Party in the Park is almost here and there are a few things we need you to do.
REGISTRATION: Parent and Student Registration must be completed to attend the Party in the Park. We can’t accept registration at the door. Please make sure both are completed ASAP. Your senior must complete the form through their school email address.
We still need help with set-up, clean-up and trucks for the Party in the Park. As a senior parent/guardian, you can’t chaperone, but we can use your help before and after if you are available. It takes many volunteers to make the event successful.
If you haven’t had a chance to donate, you can do so HERE. Your donation helps us pay for the food, entertainment, decorations, gifts and more for the Rolling Rally and Party in the Park.
ROLLING RALLY INFO:
Please review the Rolling Rally Information and Planning guide for detailed information about the event like arrival times, safety, decorating and the route.
Please visit our website medfieldangp.com to find all the information about the Rolling Rally and Party in the Park. We can’t wait to celebrate your seniors!
