MHS Senior "ClapOut"

Today, the MHS faculty took part in what has become an annual tradition, where they "clapout" the graduating seniors on their last day of classes. After the students finish watching the senior video in the auditorium, they walk out through a tunnel of faculty and staff who cheer them on and congratulate them on their big day.

It is a tremendous event and exemplifies the feeling of unity that students and staff share at MHS.  Here's a few pictures from the fun event.

Just a reminder that there will be an Adaptive & Wheelchair Tennis Clinic tomorrow at the Peter Igo Park. The event will take place from Noon- 2 PM.  The folks at Peter Igo Park have worked hard to create programs that impact all of our community members and we hope you can take part in this wonderful program.

Here's a link to the Peter Igo Park and all of the wonderful programs that they offer.

Welcome Brigid Boyd to the Marshfield School Committee

At last weekend's town vote, Brigid Boyd was voted in to replace Carol Shrand, who stepped down this spring, after serving on the School Committee for the previous 12 years.

We cannot thank Carol enough for all that she did for our school district, but we are excited to have someone with Brigid's talents on the School Committee.  Good luck Brigid and thank you once again Carol for all that you did for our students and staff.

Thank You!!

I want to thank the voters of Marshfield for supporting the initiative to replace the roof at the Furnace Brook Middle School.  With last week's vote, the town will be able to move forward with the project and will receive just over $3 million in assistance from the the Massachusetts School Building Authority to defray the cost of the project.

Bids will be going out soon to contractors and the goal is to begin work on the roof in early July.  If all goes according to plan, the work will be completed in November.

Thank you again.  This project would not have been possible without the support of the residents of Marshfield.
