McGlynn GSA

This group chose to create a club for LGBTQ students to create a safe space where all students can feel comfortable. They invited all students to have discussions, ask questions and look for peer and adult support. They encourage all students to attend their meetings, regardless of what they identify as.

Raffle for the Jimmy Fund

Yousef Chalabi held a raffle to donate money to the Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund takes money that they are raising and donating to pediatric cancer research and patients. He sold raffle tickets for $1 each and $5 for an arm length. He raffled off two prizes, an autographed photo by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts and an autographed photo by Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower.

Mustang Way Banner

This group's goal was to have students' artwork portrayed on the school banner so that they are always encouraged to fulfill the Mustang Way. They ended up using a W.I.N. block to have the students and some staff decorate an index card that shows what the Mustang Way means to them. They added a Mustang head and a quote saying, “Mustang Way...every day!” Mrs. Fee, the art teacher, helped them finalize the banner. This project was made possible by grants from the Cummings Foundation and the Krystle Campbell Betterment Project.

World Autism Awareness Day

This group decided to encourage the whole McGlynn Middle School to wear blue on April 2nd for National Autism Awareness Day. They wanted to spread awareness due to personal experiences and to help kids who have Autism knowing that the McGlynn Middle School is supporting them. They donated the money they raised to an organization called Autism Speaks raising $69 which meant 69 teachers and students wore blue!

McGlynn Middle School Project Fair

The McGlynn CCSR students participated in creating a safety video that was shared with the entire McGlynn Middle School student body. The video shows the correct procedures during a fire drill, a lockdown, and a shelter in place. Drills occurred during class times, transitions, and when in the cafeteria setting. The video is designed to give a visual to students so that they are prepared.

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.
