Social and emotional health and well-being are essential to a successful middle school experience. But what should parents do when things aren’t going well? Dr. Jordanna L’Esperance, clinical and school psychologist at Bigelow Middle School, and Bigelow’s Counselors will discuss the resources available for students at Bigelow and within the Newton Community at the next PTO meeting on Wednesday, April 4, 7pm, at the Bigelow Library. Parents are encouraged to send questions prior to the evening to Dr. L’Esperance, or ask them during the meeting. Questions may be directed to her at jordanna_l’email@example.com.
Note from John King, Bigelow Grade 6 Geography Teacher
“The Bigelow Outreach Club will be celebrating our “sister-school” relationship with the SEGA School for Girls in Tanzania this week. During 4th Block on Thursday and Friday (March 22nd and 23rd), we will have tables set up in the Cafeteria during lunch. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of our relationship with SEGA and to raise funds through the sale of crafts and other items. Students are invited to stop by and learn about upcoming events, and to support the school with their purchases. All proceeds go directly to the SEGA School, which provides a quality education for at-risk girls in Tanzania. Stop by and make a difference!”
