Medford is Buzzing Off for Heemo!

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

One June 4th, 2017 Medford teachers Dave Kuzmicz (6th grade math), Ryan McCarthy (7th grade history), Anthony Petrelis (5th grade) and Dave Richard (High School Physical Education) are putting together a team to participate in the One Mission Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium.

The cause of this event is to raise money for children with cancer and their families. Four years ago, the McGlynn School lost a 3rd grade student named Heemo Abulfaraj to a rare form of spinal cancer. Since then the school has put together a team of teachers to participate in the Buzz-Off. Over the years we have had a lot of participants, but this year the City of Medford has got very involved in this event and the team is bigger than ever!

Deadline is May 12th … Medford Middle School Community Read

Friday, April 7th, 2017

Do you want to come to the community read book event?  

You still have time, but the deadline is approaching (May 12th)!

Read the book now and complete two activities to get your invitation.  Books are available in the library.  More information is on the school homepage or please see the librarian.

Announcing the Middle School Community Read for 2016-17…

Join us in this year’s community read.

All middle school community members are invited to read one of this year’s community read books in the Wonder book series by R.J. Palacio:  Wonder and the new companion book, Auggie and Me.

You only need to read one of the books to participate, but you are more than welcome to read both!  We highly recommend reading Wonder first.  If you have already read Wonder, then you can read the companion book, Auggie and Me.

There will be activities during the school year and a community read event at the end of the school year.  To attend the community read event, you will be required to read one of the two books, participate in the Community Read Google classroom activities, and complete a Community Read Participation Form.  

For complete rules on participating and attending the final event, please read the Community Read Program Requirements.

For more information on the books and the program, please visit the Middle School Community Read website.

This program is funded by the Andrews Middle School PTO, the McGlynn Middle School PTO, Medford Educational Foundation, and Medford Public School Libraries.    Many thanks to these groups for making this program possible.
