A Solon Salute to Mr. Tom Sabo for "going above beyond" for his students over the summer. And a Solon Salute to Tom Sabo and his students for boxing up fresh produce for our local food shelves.

A Solon Salute to teachers Ron Allen and Marianne Signorino for taking the beautification of our grounds into their own hands. With the planted flowers, the spot near the side door has looked great all summer, thank you!

A Solon Salute to senior Miles Rapaport for turning in $30 he found in the auditorium. His honesty deserves recognition! He said when he turned in the money, “Someone needs this." Great senior leadership Miles, we salute you!

A Solon Salute to the 26 Orientation Team Leaders (OTL) who volunteered their time to help the 9th graders have a successful start to their high school career. Throughout the morning the OTLs led tours, answered questions, and most importantly strengthened the school community by establishing connections between our youngest students and the upperclassmen. Thank you so much for your time and energy! Thank you Levi Beavin, Erin Sullivan, Emma Murray Clasen, Devin Baker, Asa Richardson Skinder, Meredith Stetter, Lily Fournier, Evie Caserta, Riley Cook, Joelyn Mensah, Noel Riby-Williams, Sophia Robins, January Simpson, Jeremy Hoyne-Grosvenor, Theresa Noonan, Angus Fraser, Emily Corbett-Valade, Sarah Rose, Micah Wagner, Zach Grupp, Nick Colwell, Emma Harter, Isabelle Boutin, Apollonia Tobacco, Stella Best, Miles Rapaport (Ms. Knauss and Mary Ellen).

A Solon Salute to Jeremy Hoyne-Grosvenor for setting a PR in the Essex cross country meet over the weekend. The The Times Argus (9/4/16) wrote, '"Jeremy ran 16:09 and he was only four seconds behind Tyler [winner]" MHS coach Tim Noonan said. "Jeremy caught up to Tyler and then Tyler sped away to win, but both are in amazing shape. It was almost a minute PR for Jeremy. And at this time of year, that kind of time is really solid."' Jeremy finished 2nd overall and more than 40 seconds ahead of the 3rd place finisher.
