Thanks to you, our community, the Fall Ball and online auction were an overwhelming success!
Once again the Medfield community, our sponsors, and so many others showed their dedication to our schools by helping the MCPE raise over $70,000 (135% of our goal) during this biennial fundraiser. Your support helps the Medfield public schools continue to build upon the excellence for which they have become so well known. Thank you!
Fall Ball Fund-A-Grants
Blake Fund-A-Grant “Point-Click-Create”
This grant funded tools for each cluster that will improve the production quality of presentations. The tools included iOgrapher cases, wireless speakers, and adapters for the speakers. The cases and microphones are for filming and recording, and the speakers/adapters are for presentations. These tools provide opportunities for students to create and colaborate in their learning, essential transferable skills for their current and future endeavors.
HS Fund-A-Grant “3D Design and Printing”
This grant funded a 3D printer for the High School Art and Technology department to enable its students to synthesize their knowledge of art and technology to design and create 3D objects.
Memorial Fund-A-Grant “Makerspace Computer Tables”
This grant funded nine computer tables and chairs to replace old-fashioned carrels. The mobile nature of these tables provides opportunities for configurations that encourage cooperative learning and collaboration.
Wheelock Fund-A-Grant Bren Bataclan
This grant funded a return visit by muralist Bren Bataclan to Wheelock School. He has a unique style and encourages students to contribute to his mural ideas. He holds assemblies of small groups of students to work together to create drawings based on 2nd and 3rd grade curricula. These drawings provide the basis for his wall mural which he will spend four days painting on the second floor hallway.
Dale Fund-A-Grant Dash and Dots
This grant funded 10 Dash and Dots, codeable robots, to the Dale Street Library Media Center for the use of all 4th and 5th graders. The Dash and Dots provide students with the opportunity to build upon skills they learned at Wheelock and will continue to reinforce as they progress to Blake.
