Sullivan’s Message

Sullivan’s Message: Milton High School and the entire Milton Community is incredibly fortunate to be welcoming Chris and Kathi Sullivan to the MHS Auditorium on Wednesday, April 27 at 6pm. The Sullivans will share the separate stories of their personal struggles with the impact of alcohol and drug abuse, underage/binge drinking, loss and recovery. Kathi lost her beloved daughter as the result of a tragic underage binge-drinking incident. She later met Chris, a former Patriots Super Bowl champion, who after battling anxiety and depression succumbed to substance abuse that ended his NFL career. Together they hope to enlist the community to embrace creating increased awareness of drug and alcohol abuse, the importance of developing coping skills and seeking help when needed and sharing that making good choices is life changing. All MHS students will have the opportunity to hear the Sullivans speak during the school day, but we would like to invite all parents and other high school aged community members to attend. You can find more information about the Sullivans at

Project Linus

Thank you to MHS student Casie Peterson for sending in information about Project Linus.

Project Linus is a program that was made to create and donate handmade blankets for children in hospitals who are sick and in need. The goal is for all children in Boston hospitals who are going through difficult times to be comforted and warmed by one of the blankets.

The MHS fashion program collaborated with Nancy Kearns, a retired MPS teacher and one of our students’ grandmothers, to help provide blankets to the Project Linus charity. The class was involved in everything from cutting fabric, creating the blankets, packaging them, and dropping them off. Our most recent project is to make “handmade hugs” for the families affected by the unbelievable tragedies in Ukraine. Project Linus has already donated over 500 blankets to charities in Ukraine and we plan to add our blankets to their next delivery. The charity delivers blankets year-round and if students want to continue donating blankets, please email Ms.White at

The April 7 School Committee Candidate Forum very much fulfilled SEPAC’s mission to advocate, educate, and participate. By way of introduction, each of the five candidates was asked to answer the following questions: Please tell us a little about your life experience and philosophy regarding special needs and special education? AND How do you define inclusion?

A final question that went to all candidates: What would you say to voters who believe special education services come at the expense of general education programs or extracurricular offerings?

If you missed the forum, you can watch the recorded version on Milton SEPAC. We hope you will participate and educate yourself by reviewing candidates’ views and advocate by VOTING APRIL 26.

In honor of Ramadan, the Milton Muslim Neighbors are again partnering with Beth Shalom and First Parish to run a community food drive from April 8-29. There are bins at each of the six Milton Public Schools as well as various locations throughout town. All details can be found here.
