As 2019 comes to a close and we celebrate many big steps forward when it comes to sustainability in Newton Public Schools — thanks to a lot of work from dedicated community members, including parents, teachers, students, staff, administrators, elected officials… — we pause for reflection.
What is our vision for 2020?
What schools do we want for our children?
We asked those questions at our last meeting (11/14) and we are hoping to discuss this more thoroughly next year.
We are inspired by Boston Public Schools Vision:
“A green school is a school that 1. reduces environmental impacts and costs; 2. improves occupants’ health and performance; 3. increases environmental and sustainability literacy.”

Happy Solstice and our Best Wishes for a Sustainable New Year!
