Thank you to PTO member and MHES parent Melissa Schober for sharing this Summer 2019 List of 44 incredible options and lots of ways to sort the information including if scholarship/financial aid are available! With ice and snow still in the forecast, it may seem early to be planning for the hot days of summer but registration is open or opening soon at many locations. Good luck and hope you find this resource helpful!
Congratulations and check out the new Medfield Heights Elementary School website - chock full of information about upcoming events, curricula, programs, staff, before and after care and more. Stay informed at www.medfieldheights.org
INTENT SURVEY and FOUNDING FAMILIES
School budget season is quickly approaching - and this year, the budget process is especially important. If MHES loses families during our transition to the swing space, our budget will be greatly impacted - which impacts staffing. The dedicated and experienced staff at MHES are our MOST VALUABLE asset.
Principal Kilcoyne is asking every family to complete an intent survey and return the form as soon as possible.
The INTENT SURVEY went home with children in this week's Wednesday folders! It is critical that MHES know how many families will commit to staying through the transition and the opening of the new building. If a family makes this commitment to the school, MHES would like to show their appreciation and recognize them as Founding Families. The names of each Founding Family will be permanently memorialized in an art installation in the new school building's lobby!
Please use the Budget Input Survey link below to give input towards budget priorities for the 2019-2020 school year. You can also attend the listed meetings for more information and to give your input.
