Career (Flex Block) Seminars: May 24 and 26 (via Zoom)

May 24: Mass Bay Community College Programs

Are you interested in a career that typically isn’t offered at a 4-year college such as working in the automotive field or becoming a paramedic? Are you concerned about the cost of a 4-year school? Mass Bay Community College offers affordable programs in traditional subjects such as STEM, business and education but also offers programs (often providing you with required certifications) in the automotive industry, nursing (and other careers in the health profession, legal studies, paramedic and more. In two years or less you are ready to enter the field and start earning a salary or continue on to a 4-year school.


Alison McCarty is the Associate Dean of Admissions and Community Learning for Mass Bay Community College. Talk to Alison to learn about Mass Bay’s certificate and degree programs, as well as careers that only involve taking a few courses to receive certification, learn about their various programs, how to apply, financial aid and opportunities for current HS students.


May 26: Lawyer (Family and Juvenile Law)

The movies and television typically portray lawyers as criminal defenders, personal injury lawyers or prosecutors. However, according to 2U, there are 12 broad areas of law including corporate lawyers, immigration lawyers and sports and entertainment lawyers.


One area you may not know about is the area of family law. Christian Franklin is a family and juvenile law attorney who also works in the area of education law. As a family lawyer, Christian deals with divorce, child custody and guardianships. As a juvenile law attorney, Christian represents students in cases involving care and protection or CRAs (child requiring assistance).


Talk to Christian to learn about his particular area of the law as well as other specialties, the differences in ABA accredited law schools and those that are not ABA accredited, 3 + 3 programs that are offered by some colleges, what you study in law school, the type of work you might do in the other specialty areas and more.


How do you sign up?

Sign up using the ADAPTIVE SCHEDULER in Powerschool. Sessions are listed under "Courses" as "Admin-Career Workshop" with each seminar limited to 25 students. Then, during the Flex Block period simply go to the assigned room. Once there, simply log in using the zoom link provided in the adaptive scheduler. PLEASE BRING HEADPHONES.

There are paid internship opportunities available for the following programs:


Summer FOCUS:

  • Monday, 7/11 - Wednesday 8/3 (4 days a week for the first 3 weeks, 3 days a week for the last week).

While you don't have to be an aspiring educator to accept one of these internships, the paid experience you will receive will be of great value if you are potentially thinking about a career in education.


If you are interested in learning more about this, or in being considered as a summer program intern, please email me at: jparson@hopkinton.k12.ma.us

Mrs. Parson

Host Family Opportunities

As many of you know our school district invites international students to attend

Hopkinton High School each school year. This exciting initiative is part of the school

district's efforts to expand its global education program. For the past years, these

dynamic international students have engaged our community and formed relationship

that go well beyond our school building.


To make this program a success, we need local host families starting in September

2022 and we have two students seeking host families now. Welcoming an international

student into your home is like gaining a son or daughter! The relationship you build with

your student can last a lifetime as you become their “home away from home.” It’s hard

to teach children important life lessons such as acceptance, tolerance and the power of

diversity. Hosting an international student is a great way to fill your home with joy and

laughter while realizing that what makes us different can also bring us together.


To attract host families, we are working with Educatius Group, our corporate partner on

this program. Educatius encourages all families to apply to become a host family –

families with young children, no children, and/or high school age children.


To ensure that this initiative is a success, Educatius provides the following resources:

1. A generous monthly stipend paid to all host families

2. An orientation program for the international students and host families

3. Host family and student support, available twenty-four hours a day


Our International Students:

1. Are fully insured

2. Are between ages 14 – 18

3. Have their own spending money

4. Speak English

5. Maintain strong GPA


To meet our goals, we now need your help. If you are interested in providing a culturally

enriching experience for your family, our international guests, and the students at

Hopkinton, please contact Vicky.kan@educatius.org or call/text 617-970-1999.


There are 2 profiles of students looking for homes below.

Honoring Juneteenth - Bookmark Design Contest

Although it's been celebrated by many throughout the U.S. for over 150 years, Juneteenth--which commemorates the emancipation of American slaves--was officially made a federal holiday in June of 2021. In recognition of this important date, the MetroWest Commission on the Status of Women is hosting a bookmark design contest for all students attending Middle and High School located in the MetroWest region.


Students are encouraged to design a colorful and informative bookmark that celebrates and educates others about Juneteenth. (Any images or test you use should be your own.) Winners will be announced the end of May and will receive a prize of $25. Additionally, we will print, donate and deliver the winning student's bookmarks to his/her school--one for each member of their school community. Bookmarks should be 2" x 7" in size.


Please email submissions to metrowestcommission@gmail.com by May 27. (Be sure to include your full name, grade and the name of your school.)
