Did you know that approximately, 1.3 billion tons of food gets lost or wasted every year? There is a way you can help reduce waste. At lunch, there will be a box where you can "Give a Snack Back" and donate uneaten packaged food like granola bars, chips, or crackers. All snacks will be donated to the Holliston food pantry. This is a great way to reduce food waste and help those in need.
Big congratulations to the cross country team who raced their last dual meet of the season at home against Hopkinton.  The boys put their best foot forward but Hopkinton came away with a win with an impressive race.  The girls team stomped on rival Hopkinton with another shut out. 8 Holliston girls came in before their first girl runner.   Next race is the Central Mass Invite followed by the State Championship Meet in a November. Way to go, team!
A fantastic effort was put forth by the RAMS GR7 Volleyball squad yesterday at Millis.  Despite the team losing 2 game sets to one, the team improved in each set, forcing the Millis team into extra points in the 2nd set and defeating Millis in the 3rd set.
