 Your MHS Writing Center remains available for tutoring appointments during Flex periods. 

 For Seniors: 
Are you a procrastinator and still need to start and finish your college essay? Or maybe you will feel better if you review your common app college application essay one more time? Just make a Writing Center appointment, and we'll help get you to the next step. Regular admission deadlines for fall 2023 admission are generally the first week of January. (This year January 3, 4, or 5.)

In addition, between Thanksgiving and the beginning of January, many seniors choose to apply to additional colleges, and that can mean more supplements to write. Make appointments in the Writing Center so we can help you start, write, and polish these challenging prompt responses. 

Or perhaps you would like some help in creating and/or polishing your resume? Again, the Writing Center is here to help you! 

For All MHS Students: 
In Term 2 there are often important writing assignments in a variety of classes. So remember: it always helps to use the Writing Center! 

Some areas the Writing Center can help: 

  • getting started on writing assignments
  • help when students are stuck in the midst of writing assignments
  • review of finished writing assignments

Perhaps you are applying to summer programs and/or internships? They often have writing prompts as part of their applications. Or do you need to write a cover letter? (Tip: you do!) Again, the MHS Writing Center can assist you with all kinds of writing, at any stage of the process.  

If anyone is having a hard time scheduling a Writing Center appointment, please reach out via your school email to Bonnie Wren-Burgess (bwren-burgess@email.medfield.net) and we can often help you now that we have an excellent Student Peer LinK program tutor along with Honors Writing Seminar peer tutors.

The MHS Writing Center is a judgement free zone. In the Writing Center we all just want to help you with any of your writing!


Your MHS Writing Center wanted to share the news with you that this year’s 
John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Essay Contest ™ is now open!

Sponsored annually by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, this contest is a way for high school students across the country to share inspiring stories of brave leaders from years past, while also uplifting President Kennedy’s lessons of political courage. Participants can win up to $10,000 for college by submitting an essay. 

Please Note: deadline for submissions is January 13, 2023!

Contest Topic and Information: The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation invites U.S. high school students to describe and analyze an act of political courage by a U.S. elected official who served during or after 1917, the year John F. Kennedy was born. The official may have addressed an issue at the local, state, or national level.

Resources, links to some past winning essays, as well as all the specifics on preparing and submitting your entry are available here:

I can also be your sponsoring teacher, or will be happy to work with your Social Studies and/or English teachers to help them sponsor your submission.

Students and staff had the best time at @ICAinBOSTON with Ceramics 2, AP Art History, and AP Studio. It's always such a treat to see such stunning work in person!


Now is a great time to pre-order the 2023 yearbook! Please act fast to ensure you get a copy before the price goes up to $100 in the spring...if there are even any left at that point, as they sold out last year. Just click on this LINK.

Also, please review this DOC for answers to frequently asked questions, especially if you are a parent of a Senior wondering how and when to order a recognition ad (AKA baby ad). Jostens recently set that deadline as January 31...if you are interested, as it is a fun but optional tradition. Thanks!
