FROM THE ANGP

ATTENTION ALL SENIOR PARENTS!

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!!!


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.

Any questions? Email lizsandeman@gmail.com  Thank you!
