Bigelow Outreach Club sponsors Paint Bar Event – June 7th

Come and demonstrate your artistic talents at the Paint Bar in West Newton on June 7th, from 6:30 to 9:30 pm!

The Bigelow Outreach Club is sponsoring a night of painting and raising money for the SEGA Girls School in Tanzania! Tickets to the event are $50.00 per person – half of the proceeds go directly to the SEGA School. Order forms with more details will be distributed in homebases during the week of May 1st and can be downloaded here.  More information can be found on the Outreach Club’s website.  This event is open to kids (over the age of 8) and adults.

Please reserve your spots as soon as possible, because the Paint Bar will open this event up to the general public in mid-May. Let’s make this an all Bigelow event!


Thank you for beautifying Bigelow

Message from the Principal

Dear Bigelow families and staff,

A huge thanks to all of our Bigelow families and staff who worked for Bigelow during NewtonServes Day.

Dozens of volunteers were here yesterday, working hard, building a fence, spreading tons of mulch, pruning and raking dozens of bags of brush, and in general sprucing up the grounds and entrance to the school.

I can’t believe how much we were able to get done. Bigelow’s grounds have never looked better and are now ready for spring!

Bigelow and Newton are amazing communities, and your work meant so much to me. It truly takes a village to run a school, and yesterday you were one hard-working village. It was particularly gratifying to see so many students getting their hands dirty and learning about the joys of getting involved, many for the first time. A special shout out to Audrey Weissborn and teacher emeritus Kathy Marsh for their leadership and labor!

Thank you SO much!

With appreciation,


Let’s dance with the “Steel Appeal” Steel Drum Band at the Big Night Luau
