For the first time in the 26-year history of the Greenfield High School girls soccer program, the Green Wave captured a league championship on Friday night.

On August 19, 2019, the Greenfield School Committee unanimously adopted a new comprehensive health education curriculum for students in Grades 6-12. The curriculum, "Rights, Respect, and Responsibility," (commonly referred to as "3R's") is fully available online for parents and educators to view. Rights, Respect, and Responsibility is an inclusive, research-based curriculum that includes information about sexuality and reproduction that meets the CDC as well as state and national standards.
