Dear Newton North Community,

I’m excited to invite you and your students to Newton for a Better World, a special event featuring adults and teens who, through small acts of service, have made a difference in the lives of others and in so doing have found meaning and passion in their own lives. I encourage you to put this event on your calendar and attend together.

Newton for a Better World continues our work equipping students for a successful and happy life by teaching them important social and civic skills and by encouraging them to get involved in improving our community.

This inspirational evening will be headlined by Dr. Sanjiv Chopra, a sought-after speaker across the United States and abroad and author of nine books on topics related to medicine, leadership, happiness, and living with purpose. His books include The Two Most Important Days: how to find your purpose—and live a happier, healthier life and Brotherhood: Dharma, Destiny and the American Dream, a double memoir written with his brother Deepak Chopra who is also a renowned speaker and author.

Featured speakers will be the founders of several area nonprofits and community efforts--Hope and Comfort, Stand Up Campaign, and Pie in the Sky—along with Newton North students who are taking action and serving others.

The evening will include displays of students’ community and volunteer work and a dessert bar featuring Cabot’s ice cream!

This event is open to all Newton students and families so seating will be limited. Doors will open at 6:30.

I look forward to seeing you and your students on December 2.

Best regards,

Henry Turner, Principal
