Run for Red Nation - this Sunday!

The following is a message from MHS Senior, Brendan Hunt:

The Run for Red Nation is this weekend! This event is being held to raise money for Milton High School's sports and clubs. The 5k fun run/walk is taking place on Sunday, April 13th at the Cunningham Elementary. The start of the race is 9am, so be sure to get to Cunningham with enough time to register, get your race bib, and stretch out. Bib pick up and same day registration will be held from 7:30 to 8:50. It is bound to be a great event and I hope to see Milton High well represented! Please check out runforrednation.webs.com for more information about the event.

If you are unable to make the event, I encourage you to gather donations from friends and family to help support our student organizations. These donations can be given online, or by cash/check given to Mr. Fitzgerald. Again, please check out runforrednation.webs.com for more information on how to donate.

If there are any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you, 

Brendan Hunt

After the Acceptance Seminar - for MHS Seniors

We know that the spring of senior year can be an exciting but also an overwhelming time for families, as students and their parents begin the decision-making process of where to attend college and how to pay for it.  The MEFA “After the Acceptance Seminars” provides valuable guidance to families on financial aid awards, calculating the balance due and how to pay the college bill. 

On Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 7:00 pm at Milton High School, MEFA Representative Stephanie Wells will conduct an “After the Acceptance Seminar”.  After the presentation Ms. Wells will be available to answer specific questions.  Bring your child’s award letters from the colleges and get your questions answered.  

See you there!

Stand Up to Bullying Presentation at MHS - Thursday, April 3rd

The Milton High School Student Government representatives (with support from the Student Leaders) have been hard at work preparing for the student government sponsored anti-bullying rally on Thursday, April 3rd.  The guest speaker for the event will be Dr. Malcolm Smith, Dean and Director of the Courage to Care Institute, University of New Hampshire.  The MHS Student Government first saw Dr. Smith at Stand Up 2013; they were so moved by his presentation that they wanted him to invite him to speak to the entire MHS student body.  Following Dr. Smith's presentation on Thursday will be break-out sessions facilitated by the Student Government with the help of the Student Leaders.  The Student Government hopes that the presentation will make a positive impact with all MHS students.  

Don't forget to wear ORANGE on Thursday, to show your support for bullying prevention!
