Helpful Information for Families:

Check out the Medfield High School FAQs Center for information regarding our new HS Schedule, School Calendars, Bell Schedules, Technology, and more!

As a reminder: As of October 26, 2021, the following state guidelines are in place: 

● All occupants of school buildings (over the age of four), are required to wear a mask through    January 15, 2022. If the mask mandate is lifted within the district, unvaccinated staff and   students would continue to need to wear masks. PLEASE SEND YOUR STUDENT TO SCHOOL WITH A MASK. We are finding that many students are arriving at school each day without a mask and our supply is running very low.


CLUB NEWS

This annual fee covers membership in all clubs/activities and is used to offset costs associated with these groups/activities.

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.

Performance times - Nov. 19th and 20th at 7:00 pm.  Purchase your tickets here: https://www.ticketsource.us/medfield-high-school-theatre-society

FROM ANGP

The time is approaching for the All Night Grad Party Committee to start planning the Senior Celebration of the Year!! We are really hoping the party can return back to its original all nighter inside the High School, but we need to understand the COVID rules and regulations nearer the time. HOWEVER like the previous two years, there will definitely be a celebration of sorts and we can’t do it without the generous support from all the community, especially the Senior Parents. The average cost of the party per student is over $100. In order for EVERY senior to be included, we make the event ticketless and rely solely on donations and fundraising initiatives.

Please consider making a donation for your Senior to experience what has been described as the best experience of their Senior Year. As a thank you for your donation - your senior will receive a Class of 2022 Car Magnet.

Please donate at www.medfieldangp.com

THANK YOU and here’s to a fantastic Senior Year for our kids!!!




FROM THE MCPE
