Wednesday is Community Engagement Day

Every two years in the spring, Class I and II students participate in Community Engagement Day. The morning assembly on Wednesday, May 1, will begin with seniors reflecting on what community engagement has meant to them over their years at Milton. Class I students will then head out to pick up trash along all the roads around the perimeter of campus in support of the Town of Milton’s recent clean-up day. In the afternoon, they will host a field day on campus for 300 students from the Taylor Elementary School, where many Milton students participate in weekly community service.

Class II students will break into groups and fan out to surrounding communities in Boston, Brighton, Randolph, and Milton to visit with elders; spring-clean at a family shelter; work on an urban farm; and help out a food bank; to name just a few. A group of Class II students will also host Epiphany Middle School students on campus for workshops in poetry writing, chemistry (i.e., slime-making), and jazz.

Class III and Class IV will spend the day focused on leadership programing.
