From Foods teacher, Ms. Lovett: In an effort to bring the Farm-to-Table movement to the Milton High School Foods classes, the students recently planted seed potatoes, carrots and container corn in the courtyard using a variety of planters and grow bags. This year's harvest will hopefully include the addition of corn to the produce that has been grown and harvested in past years. Lettuce will be planted in August for harvest in September as well. We have not had a shortage of rain since the containers were planted in early June, but hopefully we will have a successful harvest in the fall. This year's project received funding through a generous grant from the Milton Garden Club. Look for our harvesting article and photos in September!
An athletic update from Superintendent Gormley's June 20th Eblast: Madelyn Driscoll, a sophomore at Milton High School, passed the United States Figure Skating Senior Free Skating test at the end of May. This is the highest possible testing achievement in United States Figure Skating. Passing the Gold test means that Madelyn has achieved the most elite accomplishment in testing, and she has now earned the title “U.S. Figure Skating Gold Medalist.” Approximately 300 members of U.S. Figure Skating pass the Senior Free Skating test each year, representing less than 1% of full membership. Congratulations to Madelyn for her impressive accomplishment!
Job Skills Workshop Last week over twenty students attended a job skills workshop led by Mr. Melanson, Ms. Bernard, and Ms. Troy. Students learned the importance of networking; how to effectively search for jobs and create a resume; as well as tips for making a good impression during an interview. Handouts, PowerPoint slides, and resume templates from the workshop are available on the Library Media Center’s Edline page for future reference. If students are interested in having their resume or job applications reviewed or wish to schedule a practice interview they should contact their guidance counselor or the librarian, Ms. Troy.
