Community forum on benefits of sleep for adolescents and implications for high school start time set for April 7, 7-8:30 p.m.

Can’t wake up your teen? Tired of grumpy, groggy kids? Concerned about the impact of limited sleep on your student? Come learn why inadequate sleep in adolescents has become a national conversation.

On April 7 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., at Newton South, the Newton South School Council is sponsoring a community forum to initiate a conversation regarding the benefits of increasing adolescent sleep through a later high school start time. 

School Committee available for feedback on proposed budget

The Newton School Committee will receive the proposed budget on March 13 and begin its review and discussion on March 16.  We will be holding office hours on March 16 following our School Committee meeting which begins at 4:30; office hours will start at approximately 6:15 or 6:30 and end at approximately 7:15. The School Committee is eager to try this new format in order to provide you with another opportunity to provide feedback in addition to the other times for public comments. We welcome questions and input and stress that this will mainly be a listening format.
