FROM MHS THEATRE
The MHS Theatre Society is hard at work preparing to perform A Wrinkle in Time on November 19th & 20th. The play follows the story of a teenage girl named Meg Murry. In this staged retelling of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved young adult novel, A Wrinkle in Time, Meg embarks on an extraordinary adventure through time and space. Along with her younger brother Charles Wallace, their friend Calvin, and the guidance of various mysterious celestial beings, Meg attempts to locate her father and, perhaps, to save the world from a force of darkness beyond recognition.
The MHS PTO Fall Annual Appeal continues! We did not run our appeal last year, so we are hoping for a successful campaign this year so we can fund grants that help enrich academic, athletic and extracurricular activities for all MHS Students. A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.
There are two ways to donate:
1. Go to our website https://www.medfieldhspto.com/ and click on the DONATE button.
2. Send in a check made payable to MHS PTO with your student and drop off at the Main Office.
Thank you in advance for your generous donations!
We are still looking for 2-4 volunteers to run the hospitality group that includes organizing luncheons for the teachers and staff throughout the year. If interested, please reach out to email@example.com.

There is a menstrual product fundraiser going on at the high school until October 20th. Menstrual product items are considered a luxury and therefore many shelters do not carry them. Possible donation items include tampons, pads, panti liners and diva cups. Donations can be dropped off in the “Dignity Matters” bin in the main foyer below the front staircase. For any questions, please contact Maddie Curmi at email@example.com
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Box Tops are still being collected and the money raised will benefit Blake Middle School. If you have any box tops that you cut out, NOT the new scanning type, please have your student drop them off in the box in the main office of the High School. There is also a collection box at Shaws on the window sill at the self check out end.
