Award-winning author visits MHS
|On Sept. 22, community organizer, activist and Boston native and award-winning author Michael Patrick MacDonald visited Marlborough High School English students to talk about his life and being a writer. MacDonald read excerpts from his book "All Souls - A Family Story from Southie" and talked about his life growing up in the turbulence and poverty of South Boston, and how that influenced his writing and activism. Following his lecture, he engaged AP English students in a writing exercise and discussion about their writings.|

Giving students a helping hand
|On Aug. 25, Marlborough’s First Church Congregational continued its long-standing commitment to helping scores of Marlborough elementary school students start the year off well with brand new, well-stocked backpacks.
The 48 backpacks – plus four more empty backpacks and some boxes of school supplies – will be distributed to the schools for principals to give to students whose families who are not unable to afford them.
Shown are congregation members Liz Mahoney, Laurel Hill and Carol MacEwen with the backpacks.
Summer Camp Fun
|For many Marlborough students, five weeks of their summer was spent having fun with old friends, making new friends, and brushing up on learning skills at one of three summer programs hosted by the Marlborough Public Schools. English language learners, Title 1 and Extended School Year campers filled Richer Elementary and parts of Marlborough High School July 6 – August 6 for fun and academic enrichment. On Aug. 6, parents of the ELL students were invited to an end-of-camp program where students showcased some of what they learned. Below is a video by ELL kindergarten and first-grade students from the program.|
