Superintendent Fleishman writes about social and emotional needs of students

Dear Newton Families:

Addressing the social and emotional needs of our students is an important system goal. It is essential that we work in partnership with families on important issues that impact our students. I am writing because we have become aware that many of our students are watching and discussing a new Netflix series entitled 13 Reasons Why, the content of which is challenging and difficult. 

Help tag gas leaks on May 13, 1:30 p.m., beginning at Newton Free Library

Did you know that Newton has over 400 natural gas leaks from aging, underground pipes? These leaks release methane, contribute to climate change, harm our future, waste energy, and damage human health and trees. Consumers pay the cost.

Join Newton Mothers Out Front and other allies to tag the gas leaks in our town and help spread the word about this invisible hazard! Come to a rally at the Newton Free Library to hear a few words about the campaign and then head out to tag the leaks. They’ll give you the materials you need to tag.
