Last week 6th Grade students had a tour of the current night sky with a focus on the planets and constellations inside the Starlab.
The Starlab is an inflatable, vinyl structure that has a 10.5-foot high dome that the night sky is projected upon. The identification of constellations are necessary to locate stars, the milky way and planets in the night sky. A laser-light is used to point out the planets, stars and constellations that are visible to the naked eye.
This CASC presentation was sponsored by the Bigelow PTO thanks to the support of our community through donations and participation in events.
The Jazz Band Concert has been changed. Instead of May 2, the new date for the Jazz Band Concert is Tuesday, June 4, 7pm. The Jazz Band and Orchestra will perform at 7pm on this evening, and then the Chorus will perform at 8pm.

At Newton North Model United Nations (MUN) 2019, students from Newton High and Middles schools will gather to simulate the UN, represent countries, and attempt to find solutions to pressing global issues. The conference is mostly for high school students, but there will have a separate middle school committee as well. Students will learn the basics of Model UN and experience their first UN simulation, on the Syrian Refugee Crisis.
