MHS International Fest - Wed, March 18

The Milton High School Diversity Committee is preparing for the second annual International Fest to embrace and celebrate our diversity.  There are more than 25 different countries represented by our students and their families in the town of Milton.  The event is just around the corner -- Wednesday March 18, 2015, from 6:00 - 7:30 PM in the Milton High School cafeteria.

We are still looking for a few more people to host a country table.  We invite students, parents/guardians, grandparents, and anyone interested to participate in this event by having a table display of their culture.  Caribbean nations are missing and a few more from European countries would be nice! Ireland anyone?

Students, please come and join the fun!  Five hours of community service will be given to students who host country tables (set-up is from 4:00 PM on).  Hosting a table includes planning and gathering materials for the display.  We also need volunteers for serving food (must arrive at 5:00PM).  We have eight restaurants donating food, so that part should be delicious!  There will be sign in sheets that night - country table or volunteer students will need to sign in and sign out with either Ms. Bernard, Ms. Troy, or Ms. Meunier.

Bridget will race against the nation’s best high school athletes in the Freshman Mile, after having qualified during the season with the MHS Girls Indoor Track team.
Bridget holds three Milton High School records — for the one-mile and the two-mile races, and as part of the record-breaking 4×800 relay team which earned second place at the State Meet last month.
