We will be collecting specific food items at every Natick public school over the next few weeks, and then coming together on MLK Day, as a community, to assemble 350 lunch bags and 350 snack bags to be distributed by incredible community partners including A Place to Turn and Natick Service Council, and by our amazing educators

Thank you so much, PTO, for the incredibly generous flexible seating donation! We are beyond grateful to have new learning spaces that help us showcase our best, effective effort. Having a variety of seating and working options supports us in focusing, collaborating and in staying calm during our school day. We love being able to choose spaces where we can work best during lessons, independent work and group work. In our community meeting last week, we reflected on how we have increased our perseverance and engaged learning levels significantly since our new furniture arrived. Here are a few quotes about our furniture that we wanted to share with you:
"I use to have trouble sitting still, and now that I have so many options I do not have trouble with sitting still and staying focused anymore."
"I can focus way better on my learning, especially when I am on the rug."
"The low table has really helped me with teamwork. It makes a huge difference!"
"Our new furniture teaches us to share!"
"The low table helps me with my engaged learning in all subjects."
We cannot thank you enough for helping our brains grow!
