Guess who won this year’s Teacher of the Year? To see the winners from each school, scroll down to the “MFE News” item!!
FROM THE DESK OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
I would like to remind the community about a wonderful event taking place next month right here in Milton. The Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton’s 7th annual Community 5k Health Walk and Health Fair will be held on Saturday, June 11th, 2016.
We are so fortunate to have such an incredible medical facility in our town, and as the Superintendent, I also consider myself fortunate to have such a strong community partner in the BID-Milton.
The event kicks off with a 5k walk around Milton at 10 a.m. This Community Health Walk generates much-needed awareness for a variety of organizations that provide public health programs and support cardiovascular health through the hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. Starting and ending at BID-Milton, enjoy a 3.1 mile (5k) walk through the streets of Milton. Beginners can follow the half-mile course around the hospital campus instead, if they choose. Every dollar raised will go towards enhancements to the hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
After the walk, walkers and other guests may visit BID-Milton’s annual health fair and family-friendly entertainment. There will be fun for the entire family including kid’s games and activities, health screenings, DJ and free BBQ lunch. For more information, call 617-313-1557. The cost is $5 per walker and employees of BID-Milton and children 12 and under are free! To register, click here.
See you there!

Sargent Chuck Caputo of the Milton Police Department treated the MHS Pre-K children and the Child Study seniors to their annual field trip to the police station. Sgt. Caputo talked to the students about many safety issues before giving the children a tour of the station. Students were also able to hop on the motorcycles, sit in the police cars and watch a demonstration with Officer Kristen and the police dog Fozzie. The children learned so much about the job of a police officer and how to keep safe. Sgt. Caputo has been inviting the Pre-K children for more than ten years now. His own three children went to the MHS Pre-K (Gile Campus) and are currently students at the high school.
