Elementary School Tutors

Every Wednesday during their WIN block, students Wafaa El Mererbi and Sherlyn Erazo go to the McGlynn Elementary School to help tutor the younger student. "Our goal is to help tutor elementary school students and be a role model for them." The students have been volunteering to help teach math in both Ms.Griffin's third grade classroom and Ms. Renaud's first grade classroom.

Random Acts of Kindness

Sunday, February 17th was Random Acts of Kindness Day. On Friday, February 15th, students Meach Eliassaint and Yasmine El Fassi began putting sticky notes on all the 8th grade lockers. These sticky notes had compliments written on them. Within the following weeks, the students covered the 7th and 6th grade hallways with sticky notes as well.

Single Pregnant Mothers

Students Danayara Torres and Brayan Solis wanted to help out the single, pregnant mothers within the Medford community. In partnership with the McGlynn Middle School Student Council, the two students held an event each day of Spirit Week. A theme was highlighted upon each day and participation cost $1. All money raised went towards helping single pregnant mothers within the Medford community.

PawPlies

A group of students felt strong that animals should be able to feel safe and comfortable around people and their environment. They raised money to donate to the Animal Rescue League of Boston by selling lollipops during lunch hours. Information about the ARL and the adoption process of animals was attached to the lollipops, educating our donors with a small piece of information about ARL. For example, some of the lollipops had “Adopt, Don’t Shop!” written on them. "We feel the need to do this because we feel in our hearts that this matters."

McGlynn Middle School Food Drive

McGlynn Middle School students Kristopher Rothermel and Pedro Zeferino focused on informing the student body on how to approach counselors in the McGlynn guidance department. This is important because many students are afraid to talk to an adult because they believe they will be judged. "I’m hoping this project will open up to kids that have bad thoughts, or have hurt themselves in the past that need to talk to someone. Also, a lot of kids think they’re alone but they’re not." The two began by interviewing guidance counselors with frequently asked questions, and then shared this information with the students at the McGlynn.
