Boudreau: Medfield High School Senior Girls’ Tea: A Beloved Tradition

The Medfield High School Senior Girls’ Tea is a Hannah Adams Women’s Club sponsored event that takes place every spring for the graduating females of Medfield High School.
It is hosted at the home of a student, and is attended by around 80 students each year. This year’s tea will take place on May 15 at senior Meghan Keleher’s house.
Girls dress up in their finest sundresses and pearls, and enjoy a formal afternoon sipping tea – or punch if the weather is too hot. It is marked as a time for the girls to reminisce about their time in the Medfield school system, and look towards the future. However, the topics of discussion are not limited to only serious matters. Plenty of laughs and silly stories are shared as well. This will be the eighth consecutive year of the Tea Party.
“I am super excited to get dressed up and spend the afternoon with my friends,” said senior Amanda Amoruso.
These sentiments seem to be shared by other female students. The lunch provides a bonding time for students who may not otherwise spend time with girls outside of their usual circle.
Other traditional events this year include prom, the art show, and the All Night Graduation Party. Juniors and seniors are invited to prom, but the All Night Graduation Party is open to seniors only. These events will serve as a fitting end to another wonderful year at Medfield High School.
