  • Attention Junior Parents:  We need your help!  It is a Middlesex tradition for Junior class parents to host a midnight "Carnival Breakfast" for Seniors when they return to campus following the Senior Prom on Saturday, April 27. Please consider paying it forward, as next year our kids will be the beneficiaries of help from the class below! We are in need of volunteers now, the night of the event, as well as for donations of food.   

    Volunteers: We'd love to hear from anyone who would be able to join us to help plan food, decorations, games, logistics of the raffle etc.  On the the afternoon/evening of April 27, Junior parents will be setting up the Terry Room into a carnival, complete with games and great food for the post-Prom event including the annual raffle of items donated by Senior parents! We need plenty of hands to set up, to work the event, and to clean up afterwards. Although the event occurs late at night, it is an extremely fun way to really have a hands-on MX parent’s experience! 

    Donations: Please consider making a donation to cover the cost of food and decorations.  Monetary donations make it easy for us to ensure we have the right quantities, but if you prefer to donate a food item, we will happily accept those also!  Make checks payable to "Middlesex School."  In the memo line, please write "MPA Prom Breakfast" and mail to: Jody O'Malley 46 Cudworth Lane Sudbury MA 01776.  In the unlikely event that we do not use all the donations they will be put in the MPA account for future occasions.

    Please sign up to volunteer at: Middlesex Prom Breakfast Sign up Genius Thank you in advance for your generosity!     

    Any questions? Contact any Junior class MPA Rep: Carrie Finke at Jody O'Malley at Christine Cunningham at or Lisa Gelormini at

We need your help with prize donations for the raffle; the easiest way to help is with cash donations that can be used to purchase prizes, or donations of items such as gift cards (restaurants, retail stores, iTunes, Amazon, etc.), tech items (iPad, headphones, etc.), event tickets, and/or gift baskets.  All donations are greatly appreciated.
