“This was the most fun I have ever had at school!” quote from a 6th grade cast member.
The Parents of Performing Arts Students – PoPS would like to thank all the staff, teachers, families, and students for making Shrek the Musical such a success! The PoPS would like to give a special thanks to Mrs. P, Ms. A, and Ms. Mo for all their energy and support of our kids. Also, thanks to the support of the Bigelow community, PoPS raised over $1000 to support the program!

Brooke Brady, our own special education teacher at Bigelow, is training to run the Boston Marathon. She is committed to raising $5000 for the Newton Schools Foundation! Even though this week was Newton Public Schools’ February break, she took no days off!
As a native of Boston, she grew up watching the marathon as a spectator, cheering on the runners. Now, she will be a participant anticipating the crowd’s support, as she makes her way up Heartbreak Hill.
Message from Brooke “I am proud to have been chosen to run for Newton Schools Foundation. The Foundation supports new curricula and learning opportunities that foster high achievement for all students. “As a special educator in Newton for the past fifteen years, I have had the opportunity to strengthen my skills and see first hand the positive impact that these programs have on our students. The funds raised go directly to the professional development of the staff, and programs for the students.”
