Newton CPA Grants Event at NSHS, October 3rd

Dear Memorial-Spaulding colleagues,

I hope you can help us pass the word about the CPA grants events below. The Community Preservation Act was amended this summer to make more kinds of projects eligible, and although CPA funds still cannot support education directly, we believe everything they can support is important to Newton students and their families. For example, one of Newton’s very first CPA grants supported the creation of your Kayla’s Garden
outdoor learning area.

Thanks for any help you can give us with outreach.
I hope some of you can come on October 3rd!

Alice Ingerson
