Good afternoon MHS families,
This past Friday was an exciting night for our school community as our boy's basketball team competed for a state championship. While the result was not what we wanted, it was great to see the amount of support from our students, families, and community members. A new season begins this week with spring sports tryouts set to start tomorrow. It will be great to get back outside and watch our teams compete with the return of the nice weather.
We have had a lot of great activities to celebrate the past few weeks, so be sure to check out some information below and see some of the pictures from these events.
Graduation is set for Sunday, June 4th at the Xfinity Center. We have also confirmed the time of the ceremony to begin at 1:00pm. There are no restrictions on the number of guests that can attend graduation.

METG One-Act Play Festival
The MHS cast and crew of the student-directed one-act play, Do Not Go Gentle by Suzan Zeder had a great time at the preliminary round of the METG One-Act Play Festival at Sharon High School on March 4th.
Three students won awards:
Outstanding acting awards went to MHS senior Emersen Pierce and MHS freshman Tyler Lovino Outstanding light design went to MHS junior Ryan Smith.
Do not Go Gentle directed by MHS seniors Elisa Romero and Zachary Schreiber, was the only student-directed play presented on Saturday. We are incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication of our students, and to be the only student-direct play at the festival is impressive. Well done!

Support without Spending
Mansfield Choir is raising funds to lower field trip costs. HundredX Causes is a way for people to give without spending to a cause they care about - just by sharing their opinions. Members of the choir have attended the Tri-County Choral Festival, sang at the Providence Bruins and have organized a number of opportunities for singers in grades 4-12! As we grow we hope to offer more but we need your help!
Here’s how it works: This month, each time you share a quality brand opinion with HundredX, up to $2 goes towards fundraising for choir programming. You can personally create up to $150 of value (75 opinions).
Please click HERE or text “VOICE” to 90412 to sign up and learn more about the program.
We are so grateful for your support!
