In his periodic update to the Newton school community sent out on January 21st, David Fleishman talked about sustainability in our schools. “Many of our students are at the forefront of this issue, as evidenced by their powerful speeches to our School Committee last week.” (See the Jan 13th meeting minutes here, and one of the speeches here).

Together with Dr. Fleishman, we look forward to “strengthening our own sustainable practices as a district while continuing to provide our students with multiple opportunities to learn about, engage in, model, and actively support a more sustainable planet.”
Green Newton School Connections has been working with the district and the city as a member of the School Sustainability Working Group. We are thankful for the partnership in helping to engage with families, propose policy, and support sustainable practices and more environmental literacy and climate education.
