Video– A Portrait of Medfield High School

By adminNo Comments

Here is a documentary made by two of our seniors, Ben Bushnell and Nathan Grossman.

The documentary is called “A Portrait of Medfield High School.” The boys shot terrific footage of the campus using a camera mounted to a remote-controlled plane and some creative panning in the auditorium and gymnasium. This was part of their TVP project. This Youtube video cannot be viewed on a mobile device; you have to use a computer.

Enjoy!

By adminNo Comments

On Saturday, March 1, at the American Legion on Peter Kristof Way, the Medfield High School (MHS) Alumni Association will host its third annual Trivia Night, a fundraiser for the scholarships given out every spring to graduating Medfield High seniors.

This year’s scholarships will be given in memory of long time MHS teacher Elaine Pederzini (1929-1971) and long time high school teacher and golf coach, George Callahan, who died this past year. Previous scholarships were given in memory of Estelle Stahl, Susan Pope, and Madeline Greene.

Here is your chance to match wits with Medfield natives, Medfield High Alumni and newcomers alike. The event kicks off at 7 p.m., and the game will begin at 7:30. The last round will end at 10:15 p.m. Cash prizes will be given to tables placing first, second, and third.

If purchased in advance of the day of the event, the cost of each ticket will be $20 or $150 for a table of 10. On the night of the event, the cost of each ticket will be $25 or $200 for a table of 10. You may purchase a table for you and your classmates or friends, or you may purchase a single ticket and sit at a table with other singles.

Tables are encouraged to join in the new tradition of table-gating, where tables bring their own theme foods. Otherwise snacks will be provided and the Legion’s cash bar will be open.

Tickets will be on sale at Park Street Books and Toys on 504 Main Street. You may also purchase advance tickets by contacting Georganne Iverson at georg8069@ aol.com or by mailing a check to MHSAA, 38 Spring Street, Medfield, MA 02052.

Letter from MHS Principal, Robert Parga

By adminNo Comments

November 2013

Dear Medfield High School Alums:

I hope this note finds you well and enjoying the first days of the holiday season. I have always considered it a privilege to work in such a fantastic and supportive community…Medfield is truly a special place. Over the past seven years as Principal at the Blake Middle School and now at Medfield High School, I have had a front row seat to some amazing student accomplishments. Here are a few highlights:

  • Academically, our students continue to score among the highest in the Commonwealth, which includes, SAT, ACT, AP exam, and MCAS scores. Last year, U.S. News and World Report awarded MHS with its Gold Award, the highest award it gives to a public high school.
  • Our music department continues to receive national recognition and last year, our award winning Jazz band spent 10 days in China. The band members performed in concerts in Beijing, Bengbu, and Shanghai and held music clinics for students in various schools.
  • Many of our art students have had their work displayed in galleries across New England.
  • Our Theater Society continues to entertain us with unbelievable student performances.
  • Our Athletic Department has reached unprecedented heights, including an amazing 17 state championships over the past 10 years.

No matter what year you graduated, in some way, each of you has contributed to the above-mentioned successes. I encourage you to not only stay active with your fellow alums, but also keep up with the latest happenings at MHS. You can follow us on Twitter @MedfieldHS and visit our website, www.medfield.net.

On Thursday at 10:00am, we will host Dover-Sherborn High School in the annual Thanksgiving Day football classic. You and your family are always welcome. When you’re in the area, don’t hesitate to stop by…your former teachers would love to see you.

On behalf of the staff at MHS, I want to sincerely wish you and yours a happy and safe holiday season.

Best,

Robert Parga
