Athletics Update

The following post is from Larry Rooney, Athletic Director and first appeared in Superintendent Gormley's February 14th E-blast:
MHS Ski Team
The Milton HS Ski team performed well at the recent slalom races. The girl’s team welcomed back Sophie Chase from injury and Shea Rulon continued her dominance with top 10 finishes.  Georgia Bell, Sophie Chase, Alanna Loria and Kristen Ingraham added solid performances. Lucas Campbell excelled in his two runs with top 10 finishes.  Owen Walsh & Marc Plageman were rock-solid as they provided valuable points for the boy’s team. Following Monday evening’s race results, Shea Rulon & Lucas Campbell will be representing the MBSLE at this year’s MIAA State Ski Meet. Owen Walsh will be 1st Alternate and Alanna Loria will be 4th Alternate. The States will be held on Tues. Feb. 25th at Mt. Wachusetts. Shea Rulon placed 6th overall in the entire league and will be selected as a “MA Bay Ski League East All Star”. Other notable Divisional results: Alanna Loria-16th, Sophie Chase-17, Georgia Bell-19th. Both Boy & Girl Ski Teams finished in 4th place in the Small School Division. The team and coaches wish Captain Tori Zimmer a speedy recovery following her recent knee operation. Representing the Small School Division from Milton HS: Shea Rulon: 4th Seed, Alanna Loria: 4th Alternate, Lucas Campbell: 6th Seed, Owen Walsh: 1st Alternate. Shea also placed 4th overall in league standings and will likely be named to the MBSLE All Star Team.
Boys Varsity Hockey
Team Record 13-3-1. After a torrid start, the Boys’ Hockey Team cooled off this past week. With two straight losses at home, our record is now, 13-3-1. Getting great support from underclassmen Lloyd Hill (9 goals, 8 assists, 17 points), Jason turner (5-8-13), Owen Bligh (6-6-12), Shane Kelley (3-7-10), Jack Halloran (7-2-9) and Elliot Chauvet (1-7-8), the team should rebound in our last five games. Tomorrow night is “Senior Night” vs. Wellesley HS at Ulin Rink – 7pm game time. We hope the seniors can get a victory in their last home game.

Colette O’Leary finished 4th in the 1mile and Mairead Dambruch finished 4th in the 2 mile. Up next is the Div IV state Chamionships!

Save the Date! Internet Safety Night for Parents on March 24th

The following post is from Superintendent Gormley and originally appeared in her February 14th E-blast:
Save the Date!  On Monday, March 24th at 7pm, the Milton Public Schools will be hosting an Internet Safety Night presentation in the Charles C. Winchester Auditorium at Milton High School.
The speaker will be Katie LeClerc Greer, an expert who has provided Internet/technology safety training to schools, law enforcement agencies, national conferences, and community organizations throughout the country.
This evening event is for parents and guardians only and we encourage every parent in our district to attend. We have heard that this could be one of the most informative 90 minute presentations you may attend this year.
Ms. Greer will be speaking to both middle and high school students during assemblies earlier in the day on March 24th, so her evening presentation will be tailored towards parents and guardians. Please do not bring anyone under 18 to this event.
Ms. Greer’s unique educational and professional background has resulted in dynamic programs that appeal to all age groups:
  • Former Intelligence Analyst, Massachusetts State Police
  • Former Director of Internet Safety, Massachusetts Attorney Generals’ Office
  • Advisory Board Member, Internet Keep Safe Coalition
  • Recognized, national expert in Internet/digital safety and technology, advising various governmental and private agencies
  • Featured on CNN, Huffington Post, Vanity Fair, and USA Today
  • Presented to thousands of students, parents, educators and administrators across the country
Ms. Greer recently spoke to a group at Wellesley Middle School and their assistant principal, Kathy Gordon, said, “This speaker commanded the audience’s full attention. The kids could relate to her, since her background is relative, and very compelling.” Ms. Gordon said this was one of the presentations that she has seen.
This program has been strongly recommended to me by MPS parent and Wellesley Public School teacher JJ Kelleher, who called it one of the most compelling events of the year. Please make every effort to attend this important presentation on March 24th.

United States History I Guest Speaker

This post is from Superintendent Gormley and appeared in her February 14th E-blast:

I would like to thank Attorney Leigh Mills, a strong supporter of Milton Public Schools, who came to Milton High School recently to speak to Mr. Borde’s United States History I classes about the Bill of Rights as part of their unit on the Constitution.  Her focus was on the historical precedence behind of the Bill of Rights, and its impact on us today. Using the fifth and sixth Amendments specifically, students were able to explore the intent and meaning of each, as well as its application to current events.  Recently Ms. Mills also helped students in our Law and Government class prepare for the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Mock Trial Competition. Many thanks to Ms. Mills.

Run for Red Nation 5k Run/Walk

Below is a guest post from Milton High School Senior, Brendan Hunt:

MHS Community,

Milton High is not hosting its annual Walk-a-Thon this year. In its absence, a senior student, Brendan Hunt, has created the Run for Red Nation.  This 5k fun run/walk holds the same purpose of the Walk-a-Thon -- to raise money to benefit Milton High School's sports, clubs, and activities. The proceeds of this race will go directly towards protecting these student organizations from possible cuts in the budget and will aid in keeping participation fees low. The race will be held on April 13, 2014 at 9 a.m. at Cunningham Elementary School.  The entire Milton High community is encouraged to participate in this event through registering for the race or through donations. Further information about the event, registration and donation links, and sponsorship information can be found at www.runforrednation.webs.com.

I look forward to seeing you all at the start line!
