Book Fair/Ice Cream Social

Join us for a Book Fair/Ice Cream Social on Thursday, May 21, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM at Wheelock School.  This is a joint fundraiser between the Memorial and Wheelock CSA's.  Park Street Books will be set-up selling books, gift certificates, education games, and some Medfield clothing.  Storyteller Kurt Jackson will be providing some entertainment starting at 6:15 PM.  The Ice Cream Social will be held in the cafeteria where kids (and adults) can make their own sundaes.  

We are looking for volunteers to help make this a successful event and raise money for our schools. If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser, please contact Jill Fredriksen (508-359-8570 or


Many thanks to the Medfield Coalition for Public Education (MCPE) for their recent support of a grant to purchase Apple TV's for each classroom.  This grant is phase 2 of an iPad center pilot and will allow classroom teachers greater flexibility to introduce and explain Apps, model and instruct, as well as highlight student work all while moving freely around the classroom.  The grant provides for over $2,000 worth of Apple TVs.  For more information on MCPE, visit their website at

Happy (belated) Administrative Professionals Day!
Thank you Mrs. Moores and Mrs. Policella for all that you do!

There will be a CSA meeting on Wednesday, May 6th at 7 p.m. in the Memorial School Teachers' Room.  This will be the final meeting of the school year.  All are welcome!

Mark your calendars...Friday, May 8th is a half-day.  Students will be dismissed early and there is no a.m. kindergarten.

Thank you to all who submitted parental input letters for the 2015-2016 student placement process.  We value your input as we strive to find the best placement for each individual child.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for reading.
