PLEASE HELP CONTINUE THE TRADITION: Will you be a chaperone at the BHS Post Graduation (all-night) Party?  Its tradition for the parents of underclassmen to chaperone the party for our graduating seniors.  We are looking for men to help with the sumo wrestling on all 3 shifts - shift 1 (10 pm - midnight on Sunday June 8), shift 2 (midnight - 3 am on Mon June 9), shift 3 (3am - 5am on Mon June 9) We also have a few spots avail for either men or women at other activities for shift 3.  You don't need to have a child in the high school, any adult that does not have a senior at the party is welcome.  This is a great way to "pay it forward."  Help us this year and when your child graduates, the parents of underclassmen will be there for you!  To volunteer, or if you have any questions, please contact Michele Shields at or 781-270-5142.

Cradles to Crayons:  provides essential items to children living in low-income or homeless situations in Massachusetts. We do this by collecting new and gently-used items from local families and redistributing them to children in-need of everyday essentials.  Before leaving for summer vacation, please consider cleaning out your closets and dropping off your gently used children’s items in a toter in the lobby at any of the Elementary schools: Fox Hill, Francis Wyman, Memorial or Pine Glen from June 2-20th.

We are especially in need of:   Boys clothing sizes 2T - 18/20 (especially tops)
Girls clothing sizes 24 months – 18/20 (especially tops)  and Sneakers (up to adult size 10)

Because of our unique model, items donated to Cradles to Crayons are distributed directly to local children in-need. By donating clothing and sneakers you no longer want or need, you can help make a difference in the life of a child in need, and help Cradles to Crayons provide local kids with quality items, free of charge, that will help them thrive – at home at school and at play.
