MFE Celebration for Education
The MFE supports all six MPS schools in ways big and small, day in and day out, throughout the school year. MFE grants range from $500 worth of books to $25,000 worth of technology and everything in between! The MFE has funded larger projects like the Wildcat Wellness Center and MPS broadband expansion and smaller initiatives that support classrooms or grades. You can see the spring 2022 grant list here. They have been an incredible partner to MPS over the last two decades and we are grateful to the parents and guardians who volunteer their time in support of the MFE and our schools.
How can you support the good work that the MFE does for our schools? Join the fun on May 6 at this year’s Celebration for Education! Celebration is a guaranteed good time and will take place at The Beat, 135 Morrissey Blvd. on May 6 at 5 pm. May 6 is Derby Day, so come for the early start, watch the Kentucky Derby, enjoy good food and drink and the company of hundreds of your MPS neighbors. Tickets and squares will be on sale in the coming weeks, so save the date and mark your calendar for Celebration for Education 2023!

Rock your Socks
Next Tuesday, March 21, we will celebrate World Down Syndrome Day in MPS. All MPS students and staff are encouraged to “Rock Your Socks” to show support and appreciation for people with Down Syndrome. March 21 (3/21) is symbolic because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Wear your brightly colored, mismatched socks (a conversation starter and reminder that while things may be different, they are still wonderful) on 3/21 and celebrate people with Down syndrome and the many contributions they make to society.
In the coming weeks, we are administering our spring round of Intellispark screeners. If you opted your child out in the fall, your child will not participate this spring. You can read the fall Intellispark communication here. The grades 6-12 screener is linked here. We hope all students will participate in the universal SEL screener as part of the SEL curriculum in the district. If any family feels their student would be better served without taking part in it, please contact your child’s principal with your child’s name, grade, and homeroom teacher to opt out.

The Milton Public Schools World Language department is proud to announce that students in Latin classes at Pierce Middle School and Milton High School took the National Latin Exam March 1st and 13th under the tutelage and supervision of World Language teachers Danielle Huebner, Megahan Crowley, Madeline Murphy, and Pat Menard. The National Latin Exam (NLE) is a test given annually to Latin students across the United States and around the world.
