Students fanned out around town and into Boston on May 2 committing good deeds as part of Milton’s Community Service Day. Faculty advisors led groups of students to over 30 different sites such as Rosie’s Place women’s shelter, the Greater Boston Food Bank, Berea Academy and the Massachusetts Hospital School. Volunteers rolled up their sleeves performing a variety of tasks that included sorting donations, repairing buildings, reading with young children, preparing food, beautifying grounds and presenting workshops.
Class I students remained on campus hosting a field day for over 230 Boston students on Milton’s track and football field. The children enjoyed obstacle courses, face painting and other activities with Milton seniors and the School’s own “Mustang.”
Organized by the Community Service Board and Director of Community Service Andrea Geyling, the day began with opening remarks from student leaders and ended in a celebratory School-wide barbeque lunch. Although many Milton students are involved in community service projects throughout the year, this day—held every other year—is an opportunity for all students to volunteer their time and energy to worthwhile organizations that may be new to them.
