FROM THE GUIDANCE OFFICE
Samaritans, Inc. has launched “Hey Sam”, a dedicated peer-to-peer texting service for people up to 24 years old. This program is designed for young people and staffed by young people. Volunteers ages 15-24 will be responding to the messages that come in through this line, available from 9am-9pm every day. "Hey Sam" gives youth the opportunity to reach peers if they are struggling, need someone to talk to, or need support.
Whatever the reason, reach out.

FROM THE PTO
This year's ANGP takes place on Sunday night, June 5th at 9:00 p.m. and goes until Monday morning, June 6th at 5:00 a.m.
It takes a village to make this night a success. We need almost 200 volunteers throughout the course of the night. As you know, family members of the Medfield Class of 2022 students cannot volunteer. That is why we are reaching out to the entire Medfield community to help. It is a fun experience you won’t want to miss.
Please sign up for shifts below. We will send you an email one week prior to the ANGP with all the details that you will need.
Please post or pass this sign-up along to friends.
