Neighbors for a Better Newtonville hosts Balloon Day on January 28, 11:00 a.m.

NBN will launch four 24-inch red balloons to a height of 60 feet--the height of the Washington Place development at Washington and Walnut Streets. The event will take place at the corner of Washington and Walnut streets. The purpose is to provide a visual demonstration for the City Councilors and interested Newton residents of the height of the proposed building.

Join a brainstorming session on improvements to Newtonville, January 30, 6:30 p.m.

Neighbors, businesses, local groups, and residents of all ages are invited to discuss their ideas for improvements to Walnut Street at a brainstorming meeting on Monday, January 30, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut Street, Newtonville. Kids welcome!

7th annual Just Think expo attracts and educates teens and families

The NNHS PTSO-sponsored Just Think: Teens Making Smart Choices expo took place on January 23 in two parts. During lunch blocks, interested Newton North students had conversations with representatives from non-profits about numerous topics including sun safety, dating safety, pedestrian and bike safety, mental health support, and marijuana myths and facts. They also had a chance to learn about local agencies with teen programs, including John M. Barry Boys and Girls Club, Newton Free Library, and West Suburban YMCA.

Water bottle fillers installed at Newton North

All ten Newton North water fountains have now been enhanced with a water bottle filler in order to reduce waste from plastic bottles. Please encourage students to take refillable bottles to school! This project, begun last year, was a joint effort of Jonathan Halpern and SFA (Students, Faculty, Administration), PTSO’s Grants and Projects committee, PTSO co-president Rex Clark, executive assistant Anna Ford, and NPS plumbing supplier Kennedy & Sons. The bottle fillers were funded by a gift from the Class of 2016 with help from the PTSO.
