The Bigelow PTO will be hosting our annual online auction this Spring. We are looking for volunteers to help solicit local businesses/groups to donate to our auction. Do you have local connections that you can use to help us reach our fundraising goal?
Green Newton School Connections (GNSC) is a collaborative group of Newton Public School (NPS) students, families, educators and community members who aim to build a just, healthy, sustainable, and climate-resilient community. School Connections aspires to help our schools educate students and empower them to be climate advocates and sustainability leaders.
The group meets on the second Thursday of every month from 4:30-5:30pm.
At Newton Cultural Development, we believe we have talented shining stars among our youth in Newton and have created this project to give them an opportunity to SHINE.
All Newton students in grades 6-12 are invited to apply to participate in SHINE, a temporary art installation that will last from May through October 2023. It will consist of six 4’x8’ horizontal murals painted onto plywood and grouped in small clusters in a few parks and playgrounds throughout the city.
Proposals and accompanying materials should be submitted by 5:00 PM on March 28, 2023. Artists who are selected will receive a stipend of $250 per mural, which will cover the cost of supplies and an artist honorarium. For a detailed explanation of the project and information on how to apply click here.
