All young people benefit from out-of-school activities that help them grow and learn, yet middle school is an age when student participation tends to decrease. The City of Newton’s Executive Office, Health and Human Services Department. and Newton Public Schools are currently working on promoting out-of-school time for middle schoolers. In the early stages of this work they have created a webpage to help families find summer options for their middle schooler, as well as provide other valuable information like financial aid tips.
They will be adding more to the webpage in the coming months but with summer coming up, they wanted to share their initial resources. Feedback and ideas are welcome.
