The sessions were divided into two segments, starting with grades 9 and 12, and then followed by grades 10 and 11. These assemblies serve as integral components of the high school's ongoing mission to cultivate a culture of inclusivity and compassion within the MHS community.

Together with Amy Kozlowski, Early College Coach, and a cohort of Early College Scholars, the group highlighted the essence of the MHS program.

Remarkably, this comes at no cost to the students or their families. Currently, the Early College program at Milford High School serves 148 students, each benefiting from this enriching educational experience.

The presentation covered a spectrum of topics, ranging from highway safety to specialized prevention strategies tailored for Massachusetts teen drivers.

Shining Star Early Childhood Center (SSECC)
Unlocking the potential of a simple box is a journey of innovation and creativity, illuminated by the brilliance of MPS Shining Stars. At the annual Invention Convention held on April 2 and 3, participants were excited by the theme of "Imagine It, Make It," igniting a flurry of blueprints, designs, and spirited brainstorming sessions.
Among the variety of projects showcased, Jadko’s Fresh Cut Flowers stood out for its inclusion of scientific inquiry and experiment. Through rigorous experimentation, it was revealed that the key to sprouting flowers lies in the provision of essential nutrients.
Venturing further into the realm of imagination, students envisioned a wealth of possibilities for transforming a box. From addressing practical needs such as a camper outfitted for adventure, a car, and a laundromat for household chores, to whimsical creations like a majestic castle and an enchanting ice cream shop, every project bore the mark of ingenuity and ingenuity. The spirit of entrepreneurship shone brightly through endeavors like the lemonade stand, popcorn machine, and bustling aquarium, etc., each offering a glimpse into the entrepreneurial spirit thriving within the Shining Star Early Childhood Center’s community, and how project based learning supports students academically, socially, and emotionally.
But perhaps most enchanting of all was the transformation of the box into a means of storytelling and performance with the Shining Star Puppet Theater—a testament to the power of imagination and the boundless potential of even the most ordinary objects.
PTO Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month unless otherwise posted.
