These festivals are sponsored by the Massachusetts Music Educators Association and serve to enrich school music programs by offering students additional opportunities to perform challenging literature with guest conductors. Congratulations to these outstanding musicians!

Milton High School has been hosting these auditions since 2008, and each year a tremendous number of people come together to move over 1000 musicians through the audition process. A huge thank-you to the our student volunteers who assisted judges and directed musicians, to FAME parent volunteers who provided concession items and services, to our Custodial Staff and Technology Department for their helpful assistance, and to members of the Milton Music Department who organized and managed the event: Rebecca Damiani, Gary Good, Debra Miller, Julia Hanna, Kaitlyn Laprise, Colleen Martin and Rachel Azrak.
Another successful year with more to come— the junior festival is up next in January!

FBLA returns from National Leadership Conference

Submitted by Future Business Leaders of America Advisor AJ Melanson: 

Future Business Leaders of America had an amazing trip to the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim!   The students networked with 13,000 FBLA students from all over the world (every state was represented, along with China, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Haiti), attended three days of workshops, went to Disneyland and California Adventure, and most importantly made memories that will last a lifetime!

Domenic Jancaterino won 8th place in the country in Economics!  It was the first time in my four years we have had a student earn a spot in the top ten.

Below is a link to the video created for the parents & students:

The 40th annual Milton Road Race will be run Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 starting and finishing at Cunningham Hall. The race is hosted and organized by the Milton Junior Woman’s Club. The first 500 registered runners receive a swag bag with fun goodies in it including a 40th anniversary t-shirt!  The last 3 years we have had more than 800 runners participate in the race between the 5K and 10K runs. All the proceeds for the race go back into our community in the form of grants to local non profits and scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are Milton residents. 

We are sponsored by many local organizations including these GOLD sponsors: Reebok, Symmons Industries, LLM Design, ProForma Printing and Promotion, the Cunningham Foundation and Fallon Ambulance along with the Milton Police Department, Milton Fire Department and the Milton Department of Public Works. We could not put on this event with out all their help. We are also grateful to have an amazing community turn out every year with lots of families running. Many of the schools create teams as well. Check in with your principal to see who the school captain is-- or start a team for your school! 
           
We have big plans for this year’s race including live entertainment and kids activities!! I hope you will join us and make the event a huge success!!
