FROM THE LMC
The MHS Library is excited to bring back a beloved event during the week of March 20-24, Café Read-a-Latte 2023! Café Read-a-Latte is a time for students to visit the LMC and get some down time to relax by visiting different stations with book/ reading themes. The last time it was celebrated was in the middle of the school shut down in March 2020. We are excited to bring it back with an exciting lineup of stations that we know the students will love. This year every student at MHS will get to visit our celebration of books and reading during their English class – and possibly Flex.
In order to make this year successful, we are looking for your help! There are two ways to help if you are interested:
1) We are looking for a few volunteers at the following time slots to help us oversee the stations in the Library. IF you are interested in this, you must have a CORI on file with the Medfield Public Schools (within the last year). It only takes a few minutes if you stop by the front office at MHS or Central Office with your driver's license.
2) Every student will get a free beverage and snack during their visit, so we are looking for the following snack and beverage donations. These can be dropped off any time before the March 20th kick off. You can leave them on a labeled table by the front office at MHS– or have your student deliver directly to the LMC.
Sign up for everything HERE :)
Thank you so much for helping us make this a special experience for every student at MHS! Email Kerry Cowell with any questions!
