WE NEED VOLUNTEERS for the BOOK FAIR

WHEN: Nov 4th – Nov 7th with a bonus Pajama & ice-cream party the evening of Nov 7th.

WHY:  Because BOOKS TOTALLY ROCK & WE NEED YOU TO VOLUNTEER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!  AND…. $$$ raised goes right back to our school’s library, which our kids use every day to learn and to be inspired!

PLEASE VOLUNTEER.  There is nothing like seeing a smile on your child’s face when you are pitching in to make their school experience special.  No amount of time volunteering is too short; we welcome all parents to join in, including our busy working parents. We have short time-slots at various times throughout the day and night to accommodate any schedule. Please check out the Sign-Up Genius link below with specific times to volunteer!

School Directory

Some of you may have noticed that the MySchoolAnywhere directory service will only be available through 10/31. We are currently working on a transition to a new platform: Membership Toolkit. Many PTOs are already successfully using Membership Toolkit and we feel confident that it will meet all of our needs. We are working to make the transition as smooth as possible and we will continue to provide updates as we have them. We appreciate your patience as we work through this transition. Please let us know if you have any questions in the meantime info@memorialspauldingpto.org

Newton SEPAC Candidate Forum

Please join the Newton SEPAC for a School Committee Candidate Forum

7:30-9:30 pm
Thursday, October 24, 2019
Room 304
100 Walnut Street

Candidates running for Newton School Committee will be sharing their perspective on
questions related to special education in Newton. There will also be time for parents to
meet with the candidates. Please note that elections for School Committee are city-
wide, so Newton voters elect School Committee members in all wards, not just their
own.

The format of the forum will be similar to the one the SEPAC organized two years ago.
A moderator will ask candidates questions that have been submitted by SEPAC
members, and there will be an opportunity for parents and caregivers to speak
informally with the candidates. (The presentation date was changed from 10/23 to 10/24 to accommodate scheduling conflicts; please also note that we will be in Room 304.)

Please email your questions for the candidates to parlikar@yahoo.com by Tuesday,
October 22. We will try to get through as many questions as we can during the forum.
