MCPE is currently seeking nominations for the Robert C. Maguire award for the 2019/20 school year.
Robert (Bob) Maguire was the Superintendent of Medfield Schools from 1999 – 2013.
This award will be given to a staff member whose effort embodies Bob’s vision for further developing students’ global understanding and readiness to engage in the expanding global economy. Similar to Bob, the award recipient will be someone who inspires students to look beyond the town of Medfield and learn more about the global community through innovative programs and technologies.
