Good afternoon MHS families,
As we head into November, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank those who have reached out over the course of the first few months to provide feedback. Feedback will always be welcomed as we continue to find ways to make MHS great for all students.
Mansfield High is a great place and we strive to support students and staff each day in simple ways to ensure an environment centered on the motto of RSVC (respected, supported, valued, celebrated/cared for). We will continue to support our students and set expectations centered on respect for all. In an effort to support our school, please take the opportunity to talk with your student about how things are going at MHS and reinforce the values we have discussed over the first two months. In the coming weeks, we will be holding class meetings at the start of quarter 2 in order to remind students of the values we expect of every student at MHS and ask for ideas on how to make MHS a great place for all.
Please take a look at the updates below. We have a lot of great things happening at MHS, and we want to continue to celebrate these things each week!

AFL-CIO Scholarship Opportunity Class of 2023
The Annual AFL-CIO Scholarship Program is in its 65th year. Through the scholarship program, the Massachusetts AFL-CIO is honored to continue a long tradition of helping students continue their education as they work toward creating bright futures.
The Massachusetts AFL-CIO scholarship program awardees receive between $500 and $16,000 towards their education. Over 40 unions, central labor councils, area businesses and charitable trusts from across Massachusetts participate in awarding scholarships that total nearly half a million dollars. Unions in Massachusetts have given close to $10 million in scholarships since 2000. About 1,500 students take the exam annually to compete for a scholarship. Students with a union affiliation are eligible for both the Massachusetts AFL-CIO awards and those awards listed under their specific local union/central labor council. Massachusetts students that do not have union affiliation are eligible for the Massachusetts AFL-CIO scholarships only.
The scholarship application is available online at www.massaflcio.org/scholarships All applications must be submitted online; you do not register for the exam at MHS.
Scholarship Applications are due Friday, December 16, 2022; late applications will not be accepted.
The study guide is available online and is updated annually with new information. They have updated their website to make it more interactive for students to review material. The study guide can be found at Scholarship Study Guide
