The Friday before vacation week, a group of enthusiastic Boston Arts Academy student volunteers visited MHS as a part of BAA’s annual School-Wide Community Service Day.
Visual Art majors from grades 9-12 worked with students in classrooms, helped in the art room, read to kids, and packed up a room of equipment for our impending move.
The working visit was made sweeter by the addition of MHS alums Althea Bennett (MHS class of 2008) and Emilia Onthank (MHS class of 2011). BAA has been a destination high school for many MHS students since the first eighth grade class graduated in 2001.
MHS parent and BAA Visual Art Chair, Kathleen Marsh, also joined her students, visiting classes and helping out with a sewing project.
Many, many thanks to Co-Headmasters Linda Nathan and Carmen Torres (who also is a MHS Governing Board Member and grandma of two MHS students!), Kathleen Marsh, and all of the BAA students for lending a helping hand!
