Sustainability students revitalize recycling at North

The sustainability classes taught by Ms. Anndy Dannenberg (biology) and Ms. Kathryn Teissier (world language) are working with School Council to revitalize and promote recycling at Newton North. Changes in the international market for recycled American goods are pushing Newton citizens, including students, to reassess their current recycling habits and learn new guidelines.

9th graders will view "End of the Line" by Improbable Players on February 4

The Improbable Players will perform "End of the Line," a show about the continuum of addiction, including vaping, for the entire freshmen class on Tuesday, February 4, during C2. One of the most powerful aspects of the show is the Q&A at the end. Every performer is in recovery; each one speaks about his/her narrative and answers questions honestly and directly. As always, the students will be reminded that their counselors and other counselors will be available.

Thank you to all the exhibitors (see list here), volunteers, and speakers who worked together to help create this year’s expo!

Log in using the email address and password that you set up on the Membership Toolkit website, when you validated your student and family contact information. The online directory can also be found by logging in to Membership Toolkit.
