FROM THE THEATRE SOCIETY
The MHS Theatre Society invites you to join us this weekend, November 18th and 19th at 7pm at the MHS Auditorium for our upcoming production of Radium Girls. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls tells the story of a group of female workers in a 1920's factory. The women spend their days innocently painting the faces of watches with luminous radium paint while unwittingly exposing themselves to the dangerous effects of radium poisoning. Will the girls be able to expose the Radium Corporation's negligence and bring them to trial before they succumb to radium's deadly effects? Join us to find out.
Radium Girls is an educational drama appropriate for all ages, but best suited for grades 4 and above. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased ONLINE or at the door. Radium Girls is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

FROM THE MCPE
THANK YOU to those of you who attended the 2022 MCPE Fall Ball. What a party!
At the Fall Ball, MCPE announced its 35th Anniversary Appeal - a special campaign that happens every five years to raise additional funds for Medfield Public Schools. This year, we’re asking the Medfield community to come together in raising $100,000 to support each school’s “Reach for the Stars” projects. Check out this video that features the administrators of all five Medfield schools discussing these special projects. MCPE, through the generosity of the Medfield community, has spent the past 35 years supporting the Medfield Schools - we cannot wait to make the five ideas in this video a reality with your help! We hope that we'll have your support as we work toward our goal of funding all five of these important and much-needed improvements to our schools. Please consider donating today.
Please visit our district website for community notices and announcements.
