Digital Citizenship Day/Day of Service
Wednesday was a super busy busy day at MHS! While Seniors took the SATs, and Juniors and Sophomores took the PSATs, our Freshmen were able to choose to participate in either the Digital Citizenship Day Workshop or to volunteer in the community for a Day of Service. Many Freshmen chose to visit their former elementary schools to assist with recess, lunches, and some were even able to help out in the classrooms. Thank you to all the students who volunteered their time on the Day of Service and to all the schools for hosting them! The Digital Citizenship workshop sessions were run by MHS teachers and staff and included the following informative topics: Digital Footprints, Staying Organized in Google, Stress Management & Mindfulness, Cyberbullying, Fake News, Digital Privacy & Security, and Social Responsibility,
THANK YOU to all who participated and led the sessions!
I wanted to share this message I received from a community member about 4 of our students who participated in a Day of Service:
Dear Principal Cahill,
I participated in a volunteer event today at community servings in Jamaica Plain. In attendance were four of your students. I have to say, these four young men are the perfect example of who you would want representing your school. I do not know their last names but Evan, Liam, Anthony and Abe worked extremely hard, were engaged, attentive and respectful. So often people take the time to only point out the negative. I thought it was important to recognize just the opposite. If there is some way to let them know you received this feedback it would be appreciated.
Thank you to all of our students making Milton Public Schools proud!!

MHS SEPAC-We are currently seeking a new high school rep for the 22-23 school year. The high school rep meets with Principal Karen Cahill virtually once a month and reports monthly to the board. This commitment should take approximately five hours a month and is a wonderful way to make a real impact as a special education advocate!
