Re: E-blast Update
Date: Friday, June 20th, 2014
FROM THE DESK OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
I have said many times that I count myself very fortunate to work with some of the most hardworking, professional and dedicated people here in the Milton Public Schools. A bittersweet part of every career occurs at the end, when staff members make their decisions to retire. Although we hate to see them go, we are happy that they are moving into the next chapter of their lives. I have listed this year’s retirees below. There are some employees with whom I have worked for their entire careers. There are others who have been with us for a decade or two and some have been here for only a few years. But every one of this year’s retirees contributed towards our goal of high student achievement for each and every child in the Milton Public Schools. I would like to recognize and thank the following staff members who have retired or will be retiring in 2013-2014:
Patricia Andresino, Kathleen Bertrand, Lorraine Cimildoro, Carol Kenney, Elaine Lovett, Mary Lou Markarian, Nancy Mearn, Martine Murphy, Cynthia Rossini, Joan Traverse, Roberta Williams, Christine Winchester and Suzanne Woodward.
SCHOOL COMMITTEE UPDATE
There have been two School Committee meetings since my last E-blast, held on June 4th and June 11th. They are summarized below. The next meeting will be held June 25th at 7 pm in the Milton High School library.
June 4th This meeting was preceded by a Retiree Reception in the Milton High School library to honor this year’s retirees. Once called to order, the chair invited the Milton High School Rugby Team and Coach Joe Dolan to discuss their season. Coach Dolan talked about their success, not only on the field, but also for their community participation. There was a recap of the recent high school graduation and the Academic Honors awards, as well as the Boosters Banquet. As part of the Chairman’s Report, there was a presentation on Science MCAS. School Committee members voted to approve Warrant #49 for $386,104 and also voted to approve a transfer to pay wages for the School Resource Officer. There was a first reading on Policy ADDA (Background Checks). Members suggested edits to this policy, which involves CORI checks and the new fingerprinting requirements. They also reviewed Policy ACH, which is the amended Bullying/Peer Aggression Policy and suggested edits for the Second Reading.
June 11th This meeting was preceded by a Volunteer Reception in the Milton High School Cafeteria to honor all the Milton Public School volunteers. After moving up to the library, the meeting began with a visit from Citizens for a Diverse Milton. This group came to discuss the strategies for helping each of the schools’ Diversity Committees. In addition, they reviewed a data presentation on the racial/ethnic makeup of honors courses and the athletic program at Milton High School. Next, Amy Gale and Courtney Walsh presented data on PARCC and made recommendations for a PARCC testing schedule for the 2014-15 school year, which the School Committee voted to approve. Next, John Phelan gave a Science Achievement presentation. As part of the Chairman’s Report, School Committee members voted on salary increases and reviewed the summer retreat format and the School Committee calendar for 2014-15. There was a brief discussion about the prior year’s water bill, which is being negotiated and members voted to approve the MFE as this year’s MASC nominee. Members also approved the most recent warrant (#50) for the amount of $270,856. They also voted to approve two policies regarding background checks: Policy ADDA and ADDA-R. At the end of the meeting, it was noted that this would be John Phelan’s last School Committee meeting and each member reflected on Mr. Phelan’s contribution to the Milton Public Schools.
Please note: The last day of school for students K-12 will be Tuesday, June 24th. This is an early release day for all students and no lunch will be served. Buses will run on an early-release schedule.
Also, please note that teacher assignments for all grade levels and schedules for middle- and high-school students will be sent via email in late August.

Congratulations to Pierce 7th-grader Milan Smith, who was recently named the third-place winner in a statewide poster contest sponsored by the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority. Ms. Smith, a student in Bernadette McEvoy’s science class, accepted the challenge to design a winning poster for the MWRA. She was invited, along with her family and her teacher, to the awards ceremony at Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant last month.
Pierce Middle School recently received a $9,944 grant from Blue Hills Bank Charitable Foundation for the grant titled, “Into the Field! Creating Environmental Research Experiences for Students.” This grant will provide funding to create a new seventh-grade life science unit on ecosystems; and support the development of an elective STEM course on environmental science for students who would like to conduct research through independent fieldwork on our local watershed.

NEWS AROUND TOWN
We hope that everyone has heard by now that this weekend is the Milton Music Festival. Now in year two, this year’s event adds a second full day of music titled “Celtic Sunday.”
The festival will be held Saturday, June 21st and Sunday, June 22nd at Governor Hutchinson’s Field on Adams Street in Milton.
Anyone who lives in Milton or Dorchester has passed Governor Hutchinson’s Field atop Milton Hill hundreds of times. This beautiful parcel is owned and maintained by the Trustees of the Reservation. The Field offers a spectacular view of the Boston skyline and the Neponset River basin.
Last year, a local committee was formed after the very successful Milton 350th Celebration in 2012. “We are Milton” (WAM) engineered the first Milton Music Festival in June of 2013, with an impressive fireworks display launched from the River below as the finale of the evening. The event was sponsored by the Copeland Foundation of Milton.
This year “We are Milton” is back. For 2014, event planners have included a full afternoon of Irish Music on Sunday June 22nd. Once again, ADMISSION FOR BOTH DAYS IS FREE.
The festival will begin at 5 pm of Saturday June 21st. The evening will feature some first time musical groups, including the Quincy Choral Society and the celebrated Boston Crusaders Senior Drum and Bugle Corps. There will be food, ice cream, face painting and more. Saturday evening’s musical lineup will conclude with a brilliant fireworks display beginning at 10pm.
On Sunday afternoon June 22nd, the festival will continue with six hours of continuous Irish music on the main stage beginning at 1pm. Milton has deep Irish roots and the committee is pleased to offer music enthusiasts, “Celtic Sunday.”
Headlining the afternoon is the legendary Frankie Gavin and De Dannan.
De Dannon is one of Ireland’s most renowned recording groups. They have travelled the world and are flying direct from Ireland to headline Sunday’s lineup of talent.
In addition to De Dannon, Celtic Sunday will feature some of Boston’s most popular bands including The Fenian Sons, Cat and the Moon, Erin’s Melody, Devri Irish, and Milton’s own, Pauline Wells. There will be food, drink, an Irish pastry and tea tent, homemade pizza and much more.
Free parking is available both days just down the street at Laboure College, 303 Adams St. Shuttle busses will run round trip to Hutchinson’s Field. For more information on this great weekend of music and splendor, go to www.wearemilton.org

Collections have changed from a five-day collection schedule (currently M,Tu,W,Th,F) to a two-day collection schedule (Wednesdays and Thursdays ONLY). Starting Monday June 30th, the Department of Public works will implement a new 2 day collection service for all trash, recycling and yard waste.
The old five-day collection schedule will continue until Friday June 27th. At that point, no further collections will occur until the following Wednesday.The new collection days will be every Wednesday and Thursday and collections will begin on Wednesday July 2nd and Thursday July 3rd.
For more information, a list of streets by collection route and a map of the new routes, please click here: New 2 Day Collection Additional Information
We ask that you please be patient and understand that this is a new schedule that is being implemented.Some scheduling difficulties are expected, just growing pains.
We trust that you will find it an improvement over the old schedule once it is in place.
One main difference you may enjoy is the reduction of delays due to holidays falling on a Monday!

Students: I would like to recognize all the Milton Public School students who took part in the town’s Memorial Day celebration. I am proud to note that some of our students sang at the ceremony at Milton Cemetery, while others played instruments in the band. One of our high school students read the Gettysburg address and members of our Milton High football team planted flags on veteran’s graves before the ceremony. It was a wonderful display of patriotism from our students.
Staff: We recently learned that Doreen Walsh, the Residency Coordinator for the Milton Public Schools, will be leaving at the end of this school year. Ms. Walsh has been an incredible asset to the district and has worked tirelessly to ensure our residency policies are enforced. She has worked closely with our building principals, the Milton Police Department and the administration. We are very grateful to Ms. Walsh for her time with the Milton Public Schools and we wish her personal and professional success.
Volunteers: I would like to take a moment to thank the board and staff of the Cunningham Foundation for their generosity to our Milton High School student athletes. Not only do they accommodate our baseball team’s varsity home games on their fields, but they also host nearly a dozen of our teams’ end-of-season banquets at Cunningham Hall and serve as the site for the annual rugby road race. I would especially like to thank Dave Wahlgren, who has always been very accommodating of our student athletes. We are very grateful for all that the Cunningham Foundation does for the students of the Milton Public Schools.
