Teacher Appreciation Week

Thank you to the MHS PTO for hosting breakfast for our staff this week in recognition of Teacher Appreciation Week! I am very fortunate to work with such an amazing staff who have worked tirelessly with students and families to keep things moving forward despite such an unpredictable year.


Thank you to our Senior Class Advisor, Patty Pauris, our Junior Class Advisors, Rebecca and Paul Damiani, our amazing staff, and our amazing students for such a fun night at prom!

MHS Internship Program

The MHS Internship Program is in full swing and our students are beginning their placements this week.

We have seven students at BID-Milton scheduled for rotations throughout the hospital. They will be familiarizing themselves with Radiology, Emergency, Human Resources, Rehab/EHS, Medical Records, Dietary, Pharmacy and Surgical Services. Tuesday evening they participated in a three hour orientation where they were advised of expectations and received their lab coats and badges.

Starting this week two of our interns will be working remotely with the Milton Times attending brainstorming meetings, researching and editing procedures and the entire operational overview of running a journalistic paper.

One intern is working at the Eustis Estate, assisting in the operation of a historic house museum, including planning and running public programs, installing a special exhibition in the galleries, and working on updates to their interactive tour technology.

We also have two interns working within the town’s Consolidated Facilities department where they will rotate buildings and see what it takes to keep our many buildings operational and in good condition.

Thank you to the many supporters of this exciting program including the Milton Chamber of Commerce, Milton School Committee, MPS administration and staff and the community at large. We will be showcasing our student interns’ success at the end of May with a thank you celebration.
