Newton Safe Routes to School Task Force is planning a Walk and Bike to School day on Thursday, May 5th 2016. Newton students will be joining children across the Commonwealth who will be walking and biking to school, celebrating their livable communities. Their active commute is good for the environment, it makes them healthy, and gives them more time to be with friends. The exercise also helps charge their brains and bodies for a good day of learning. We also applaud “the bus heroes” who are not able to walk or bike but instead take the bus helping to reduce vehicle traffic around the schools. We are also encouraging students on the bus to thank their bus drivers who make their safe commutes possible. Handmade cards or even an extra big thank you to the drivers would be greatly appreciated. For more information feel free to visit us on Facebook at Newton Safe Routes to School.
Kelly Del Greco (formerly Kelly McCarthy), a 5th grade special education co-teacher from Lincoln Eliot, was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer this past July when her son, Danny, was only 10 weeks old. After going through 16 rounds of chemotherapy and a full mastectomy, she was given the news that the cancer had metastasized to her brain. At this time, there is no cure for Kelly’s diagnosis.
Kelly has been a part of the Newton Public School community since she began her student teaching at Lincoln Eliot seven years ago. She was subsequently hired as the first special education co-taught teacher at Lincoln Eliot, working with colleagues that she had completed her student teaching with. Throughout her time at Lincoln Eliot, she has inspired her colleagues, students and the community with her enthusiasm and determination. Her passion for teaching is only eclipsed by her love for her family, especially her Danny boy.
Kelly’s determination is on full display now, as she takes on the challenge of battling cancer. Her main wish right now is to secure her son’s future so that he is able to pursue all of his passions. Below please find the link to the gofundme fundraising page that has been setup to raise money for Danny. https://www.gofundme.com/srzkf4zg
