Dear Parents and Seniors of the MHS Graduating Class of 2013,
Please accept our sincere congratulations as you approach graduation day. We know that your years at Medfield High School will serve the Class of 2013 well in their future endeavors, and we offer our best wishes as you embark on this important part of your life’s journey.
Since our founding in 2008, the MHS Alumni Association has been able to raise funds to support $6,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors. This year, we are pleased to be able to provide (2) $1,000 scholarships in memory of Madelyn Greene.
Our mission statement is as follows: Embodying a sense of pride and appreciation of traditions, Medfield High School empowers teachers to teach and students to learn. Founded in 2008, the Medfield High School Alumni Association preserves a shared spirit and culture among future and present alumni. The wide-ranging and diverse network of communication insures the unique ideas, long-lasting loyalty, and perpetual camaraderie of Medfield High School.
To support our mission, besides our scholarship program, the MHSAA has been successful with the following goals:
- Developed a website with an online newsletter regarding significant events in the lives of alumni and the present MHS community.
- Assist with planning and organization of reunions.
- Facebook group – 912 members
- Multi-Year Reunion in August 2012
- Organize and sponsor local and regional social events.
- Alumni Tailgating – Homecoming Football Game 2011
- Trivia Night 2012 and 2013
- Senior Parents’ Night Out 2011, 2012, and 2013
- Donation to help the Jazz Band go to China
- Bob Hersee Concert
- Provide an online network for career placement and internships for MHS alumni.
- LinkedIn group created in 2011
To fund the MHSAA scholarships and activities, we produce a number of fundraising events each year. These include the annual Senior Giving Program, which is a one-time commitment to support the MHSAA and its continued goals. We ask that each graduating senior’s family donate the amount of the graduation year – this year being $20.13.
Please download our Senior_Giving_2013 form. Your tax-deductible contribution will be greatly appreciated. Plus, if you mail it in by May 1st, you will be eligible to win a $50 gift card to Bed Bath & Beyond!
Thank you very much and, again, congratulations!
