Students Asked and the MFE Responded!

Students arrived at the MHS library the first weeks of school eager to read and check out new books. Many were hoping for graphic novels only to find that the collection was smaller than expected. Students continued to ask for manga and graphic novels in the weeks to follow. In collaboration with students and librarians across the state we curated a list of titles and were fortunate to receive a grant from the Milton Foundation for Education to make this a possibility. Due to supply chain issues the books have taken longer than expected to arrive, however, the anticipation has only increased the enthusiasm for reading the newest titles. Thank you to the MFE for supporting the library and our students’ love of reading. We are grateful for all the work you do in the district. Happy reading!

Sullivan’s Message

I would like to thank Kathi and Chris Sullivan for the time they spent at Milton High on Wednesday delivering Sullivan’s Message. All MHS students had the opportunity to hear the Sullivans speak and the feedback was extremely positive! Students said it was powerful, impactful, and relatable. Thank you to our SEL Advisory Committee for providing us this opportunity.

MHS Athletics

Please see below from MPS Athletic Director Ryan Madden. It’s been another great week for Milton High School Athletics!

First off, Jason Snow of the Patriot Ledger wrote an amazing article about our Crew Team, specifically the impact of Bradan O’Loughlin and Guled Adam. Both students “were voted the crew team’s two co-captains – the first two African American captains in the history of the program”. Check out the article on our Twitter Page, pinned at the top or at this link.

Boys and Girls Tennis beat Braintree to start the week, and the Girls followed up with another win on Tuesday v Rockland! Catalina Abboud has been a rockstar at first singles, winning both her matches in the victories. She also won her matches 6-1 and 6-0 in the team’s 4-1 loss to Natick last night.

The Softball Team is now 4-1 after back-to-back wins over Braintree and Natick since the break. Alona Lynch pitched against Natick, and then hit a grand slam in the 3rd inning to give the Cats a lead they would never surrender!

Boys and Girls Lax both beat Braintree on Tuesday! Lucie Lloyd-Farber has been fantastic in net for the Girls’ Lacrosse Team while Ian Wick put on a shooting display against Braintree on the road, scoring 4 goals to help them to victory.

The MHS Boys Lacrosse team will be hosting a car wash on Saturday, May 7th from 9 am to noon at Cunningham School.

The MHS Girls Basketball team will be hosting a “Cans for Cats” can and bottle drive on Saturday, May 7th from 9 am to noon at Milton High School.

This keeps our scatterplots accurate for the class of 2023. If you don't do it now, you will have to update Naviance before you are cleared to graduate.

MHS Student Handbook 2021-2022

All MHS students and families are required to read our MHS Student and Family Handbook and required to digitally sign a verification form acknowledging reading and understanding the rules and policies for Milton High School. If you have not signed and submitted the verification form that was sent to you by, please do so as soon as possible. Feel free to reach out to the Main Office with any questions.

Anonymous Bullying & Incident Reporting

As discussed at a recent School Committee meeting, the Milton Public Schools has updated our school incident reporting forms so people can specify incidents on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion and more. The Milton High School incident form can be found here and each school has a form linked on the front of their school’s website and they are also linked on the front of the MPS website, the MPS Education Equity page and MPS Anti-Bullying page.

Community Supports

We want to make families aware that the Milton Coalition, along with their partners MPS, MPD and BID have decided to not renew their contract with Interface Referral Service. This service provided free mental health referral services for all Milton residents. While this was a difficult decision, after considering the use data and the dramatic rise in the fee they were going to charge, it was decided that this was the best way to move forward.
