NSF Kicks off 2016-17 Annual Appeal

NSF Kicks Off 2016-17 Annual Appeal

Letter From a Student

My name is Lily, and I am student at Newton North. I’m writing to tell you about a really great program that I participated in at school funded by a grant from Newton Schools Foundation, and to ask for your help. Generation Citizen teaches middle and high school students how to participate in our country’s democracy as active citizens. I was lucky to be in the first class in Newton to pilot Generation Citizen at Day Middle School last year.

At the October 24, 2016 School Committee Meeting, Newton Schools Foundation presented Dr. David Fleishman, superintendent of the Newton Public Schools, with a check for $140,000. The funds will be used to seed and roll out new curricula and instruction that enhance academic achievement, improve social/emotional wellness, and help close the achievement gap among students in the Newton Public Schools.
