Suicide Prevention - PARENTS Invited to attend Mon 9/23 at 7:30pm
Dear Middle and High School Parents,

In collaboration with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MedfieldCSP), the faith based community in Medfield is excited to present new programming for teen peer to peer training for mental and emotional well-being and awareness.

Last June, many high schoolers participated in a focus group facilitated by Dr. Nadja Reilly, from William James College. The intent was to listen to these students to unveil some pressing issues the students may be experiencing and their root causes. Our students’ input was profound and extremely insightful. Based on the feedback from student and parent focus groups, we have started to develop programming and we would love to share this information with you.

We invite parents to learn about this new peer to peer training initiative and hear ways parents/guardians can support emotional resilience in our youth. Dr. Reilly will be presenting on Monday, September 23 at 7:30pm – 8:30pm at St. Edward the Confessor Church, 133 Spring Street, Medfield.

St. Edward Church and UCC Medfield are collaborating on this important initiative, along with the Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention. Please note that while the two faith communities are organizing this initiative, events are open to all parents within the Medfield community.

We hope you will join us – RSVP HERE!

If you have any questions or would like further information, please reach out to any one of us!

With gratitude, MedfieldCSP members,

Maeve Devlin is the 2019 MFi Youth Volunteer of the Year

MFi Salutes Maeve Devlin – Youth Volunteer of the Year!

Medfield Foundation, Inc. is proud to announce this year’s Youth Volunteer of the Year – Maeve Devlin.  Through the nomination provided by her Teacher, Gail Duffy, it is clear that Maeve exemplifies the qualities MFi looks for:  a dedicated volunteer who is driven to provide a meaningful impact in the town of Medfield.

Ms. Duffy describes Maeve this way: “One of the most striking aspects of Maeve Devlin is the fact that she really doesn’t see the enormity of what she’s done.”  In her work with the Best Buddies program at Medfield High, Maeve has “fostered a transformative experience” for all students, both those with cognitive delays, as well as those without.  In her 2 years working with this program, Maeve has led by “example, enthusiasm, warmth and tenacity.”  She has succeeding in transforming this into a club where “all students look forward to meeting as friends.”

Maeve has been a force for good in her school, leading other classmates, both those in her class, as well as upper classmen, to become part of her revolution.  By her Sophomore year, Maeve was on the Leadership Board of the Best Buddies, and began organizing some fantastic initiatives such as a pre-Trick-or-Treating party for all of the participants.  Maeve has also organized her friends to participate in the Friendship Walk, catapulting her Chapter into the top 15 of fundraisers.

In her spare time, when not giving her heart to this program, Maeve is the Captain of the Girls Varsity Basketball team, serves as her class’ Vice President, works as a waitress, and does it all with an optimistic smile.

Although Maeve’s accomplishments are amazing in of themselves, what is truly spectacular is that she has developed true, authentic and long-lasting friendship with the participants in the Best Buddies program.

Maeve had tough competition this year, and we would like to take a moment to thank the other Youth Volunteer of the Year nominees.  Hannah Rogan, Morgan Caro and Sam Joline we sincerely thank you for your dedication and volunteer spirit focused on improving our town!

 

Please join us on March 31, from 3pm to 5pm at The Center at Medfield to honor all of this year’s very special Volunteers!

MHS debate judging this AM

20180404 Per 6 Hons World Lit ... Judges Leto & Peterson

Bonnie Wren-Burgess’ Period 6 Honors World Literature Class – Pascal Debates

Jason Leto and I judged the Medfield High School’s 10th grade honors English Blais Pascal debates this morning for Bonnie Wren-Burgess.  Bonnie told the students that I had been judging the debates for fifteen years, “as long as they have been alive,” which certainly surprised me.  Given that I have not been alive all that long myself, that hardly seems likely.

The topics were gun control and genetically modified foods.  Impressive presentations and arguments by the students!
