One School, One Book: Whole School Celebration for Full Cicada Moon

On Thursday, November 1, Bigelow students will meet with graduate students from the aerospace/aeronautics and astrophysics departments at MIT, and will watch an act, specifically rewritten from the full play for our program, by the Central Square Theatre Company. Ask your students how they liked it!

The goal of Bigelow’s One School, One Book Program is to create a more inclusive community through participation in a common reading experience as a whole school.  Through discussion and advisory activities, staff and students will share a common experience of reading and learning together. More information here. This program is supported by the Bigelow PTO, thanks to your donations.


Early Release Day: Thursday 11/01

A reminder that this Thursday, Nov 1st, is an early release day. All students will be dismissed at 11:30am. There are no late buses, and students should leave promptly at 11:30am.

Election Day Bake Sale: Tuesday, Nov 6

The 8th Grade will be hosting an Election Day Bake Sale next Tuesday, November 6th, from 7:00am-8:00pm. This is generally a great success and we have potential to make a lot of money to help fund all sorts of 8th grade events! However, in order for it to be successful, we NEED YOUR HELP! We need parent volunteers to sell the goodies and we need all families to BAKE, BAKE, BAKE! (All Baked Goods should be Nut-Free and Individually Wrapped for efficient sales!)

Please sign up here to volunteer and/or bake!

Please bring your items to the Bigelow Gymnasium entrance on the 6th or drop off in the office during school hours on the 5th. If you have any questions, please contact Miriam Alandydy at or 781-424-7340.

Your help is very much appreciated by all the 8th Graders!
