Middle School Resources updated page
Aug 17, 2017 11:54 am | Newton PTO Council
The City of Newton’s Executive Office, Health and Human Services Department and Newton Public Schools are working on promoting out-of-school time for middle schoolers. While all young people benefit from out of school time activities that help them grow and learn, middle school tends to be an age when student participation decreases.
We have updated the middle school resources webpage that we created this spring and have added resources for parents like: do-it-yourself tips and guidelines for helping children find productive ways to use their out of school time in a home-based setting and some information on seeking financial aid. We welcome any feedback and ideas you have for this page.
