wifihighUpdate: tune in to MHTV next week to learn about one of the great grants funded by FMPS! ‘Headliner, MHTV’s weekly news program, will feature a story about the new IPad cart in the MHS library. The iPad cart–which has 10 iPads and a companion Macbook Pro–is available to students and teachers, and it was one of 22 grants awarded by FMPS in 2014. FMPS also awarded a $50,000 grant last year to create a Wi-Fi network at MHS. ‘Headliner is broadcast daily at noon, 6:30pm, and most nights at 9pm, and the segment will run from February 27-March 5. MHTV is channel 8 on Comcast and channel 28 on Verizon.

Thank you FMPS reindeer!

A big Thank You to our wonderful reindeer and FMPS board members, who braved the rain to pull the FMPS bus in the Christmas Walk Parade this year! It was great to see so many people along the route!

Thanks to the Farm Direct Coop for lending us their tent during the Christmas Tree Lighting. And thank you to Jay Pingree of Marblehead Graphics for printing our banner and name tags.

Nice job, Marblehead Chamber of Commerce, on another successful Christmas Walk!
