What’s Happening at Milton?
Community Engagement Day
The first Community Engagement Day since 2019 was a resounding success! Nearly 400 Class III and IV students participated, visiting 29 sites in Milton and the greater Boston area. Service opportunities ranged from sorting food and clothing donations to trash cleanup and activities such as gardening, baking, and crafts with elders and individuals with special needs. In all, Milton students performed 1,170 hours of service on this spectacular day!VIEW PHOTOS
On Tuesday, November 29, we celebrated #GivingTuesday, a day for giving back to organizations we hold close to our hearts, by learning about some new members of the Milton community. We are so grateful to the alumni, parents, and friends of Milton who chose to give back to Milton on #GivingTuesday. Your gift will be felt throughout our community all year long. Thank you!
Sound the Trumpet
On January 17, Milton grad and parent Dr. Régine M. Jean-Charles ’96, professor and author of “Martin Luther King & the Trumpet of Conscience Today,” spent the day with the Milton community honoring and reflecting on the importance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In the afternoon, Dr. Jean-Charles served as a guest speaker for our Middle and Upper School community, reminding students to look beyond a single story about Dr. King’s life and work and to seek to build a better world. In the evening, she joined the “K-12 MLK Community Celebration: Sound the Trumpet,” which featured art, poetry, music, and dance. Dr. Jean-Charles also introduced and shared a reading from her book.WATCH THE CELEBRATION RECORDING

Milton recently hosted a virtual event that explored the collaborative and engaging student clubs that uplift Asian culture at Milton. “Life at Milton: Clubs, Community, and Connection” featured faculty panelists, as well as students who expressed that these clubs offer a “home away from home” and give them a feeling of acceptance and belonging.
