Winter ASCA 2020

The After School Creative Arts program offers a great variety of FUN and UNIQUE afternoon classes that take place right at Memorial Spaulding! Classes are grouped by age and take place once/week. They are a perfect way for kids to explore a favorite activity or discover a new hobby. Course offerings range from basketball to theater to jewelry design and so much more!

ASCA is also the school’s largest fundraiser, and is 100% run by parent volunteers. Please consider supporting our PTO while your child enjoys an amazing after school class with their peers.

The Winter 2020 ASCA session will run from January 2, 2020 – March 20, 2020, exclusive of holidays, vacations, and special early release days. Registration dates are December 2, 2019 – December 13, 2019. Registration will be online ONLY at: memorialspauldingpto.org/registration

Please note that after registration, ASCA will not accept changes, refunds, or add-ons UNLESS your chosen class is cancelled (for example, because of too-low enrollment), in which case you’ll have the opportunity to choose another class. Because of this, please register on time and be sure of your selections.

*** As always, there are limited scholarships available for hardship. Please complete this form http://memorialspauldingpto.org/scholarship/ and send it to asca1@memorialspauldingpto.org if you would like to apply. Upon review you will receive a customized discount code for registration so please do not register without this if you are in need of assistance. ***

PTO Board Meeting

PTO Board Meeting, Thursday, Dec 12th at 7pm

Sponsor a Child for the Holidays

The Memorial Spaulding Social Action Committee is sponsoring this drive.

This year we know how difficult it will be for many families. We hope you will share in the joy of the holidays by providing gifts to needy children served by the local Department of Children and Families.  We want to make the holidays special for foster families and struggling intact families who are not aligned with established charities. Without our help, these children will not experience the pleasure of receiving a gift at this special time of the year. 

How Can You Help?

Email dcfholidaydrive@gmail.com. Please include your child’s name, teacher and your phone number. If you would prefer to donate by check, we will be happy to purchase a gift on your behalf. Make check payable to Memorial Spaulding PTO and mail to Lynda Gordon, 168 Cynthia Road, Newton MA 02459

Lost and Found

Lots of items! Please label things and we will get them back to you. Our team of 5th graders are very efficient. Check out what is there this week. Please note- we will be donating items before the Winter Break. We will give you lots of warning, but the space was too full by the end of the year last year.
