Happy Vacation!

April vacation is upon us and even though it has felt more like the lead up to February vacation, we are in the full swing of spring! We hope everyone has a happy and healthy vacation!!!

Early Child Growth Toy Fair!

Ms. Pandolfo's Early Child Growth class is running a toy fair for preschool. The high school students have made interactive educational toys using every day objects. The class set up a "fair" in the library so the preschoolers can enjoy! The creativity was at a high by the high school students and the preschoolers all had huge smiles on their faces as they enjoyed the fair!!










NHS News!

Ms. Williams has created a Natick in the News board. We have so many amazing students and staff in our community doing fantastic things and we wanted to celebrate them! Students love seeing themselves recognized for their achievements and it has become one of the most popular spots in the library!


We are having a pre-birthday celebration for Sassy! Her birthday is April 18th and she will be one year old! It is hard to imagine the school and library without her! She has come a long way from the little eight week old ball of fluff to a lively spirited loving little girl! She has brought so much love and happiness to everyone!

Spring is "Almost" in the Air

While it may say April on the calendar, Mother Nature has other ideas! Between snow storms, fierce winds and frigid temps, it is difficult to imagine it will ever be warm! We are trying to stay positive in the library and hope that soon spring in New England will be around the corner!!



Global Awareness takes on World War II

Global Awareness classes are working on a project focusing on the lesser known stories of WWII. Through academic research using books and databases students will create an informational textbook chapter on their chosen topic.














Joy of Reading

It may be cold outside but Ms. Morrissey's preschoolers brought sunshine and joy into the library during story time! After our read aloud, the littles wanted to stay longer and do some reading "on their own." It is so nice to see the love of reading coming through in our preschoolers!

Power of Youth


The first full week of school in so many weeks! I am hoping this means we are done with the snow for the season! It will be nice to be able to go outside and enjoy the spring weather!


The students had their walk out on Tuesday. It was a powerful and intense 17 minutes as over 400 students stood outside to honor the victims in Florida and use their voice to demand change. We were so proud to be a part of this student led assembly.









The library has been busy with senior internship meetings and seniors preparing for their last few weeks of classes. It is hard to believe that these students were once freshmen are now about to embark on the next phase of their lives!

The Joy of Sassy!!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

“Step with care and great tact, and remember that life’s a great balancing act.”

Every year on March 2nd, Dr. Seuss's birthday we celebrate "Read Across America." This is an opportunity for schools and libraries across the nation to take time out and read! We should all take a moment to slow down, get away from all the craziness of life and read. The library has some great new books in for your pleasure!

The Joy of Sassy!

Sassy is back at school! It has been so busy in the library with English research papers this term that Sassy has not been in much. She is back this week and her timing is perfect. She is so happy to be back with her students and has provided a lot of comfort and joy to all of us in the high school. Nothing makes us happier than to see the joy on students faces as they play, pet and snuggle with Sass! With all the craziness going on, its nice to have something small like Sassy bringing a smile to our faces! Senior Keyette-Lei Neves took these amazing photos of Sassy for her Digital Photography class!

Research Writing Full Force

Third term is off and running and it is the busiest time of the year in the library. We have begun the research writing component for English. English classes have been in the library all week focusing on lessons such as evaluating web sites, searching efficiently in Google and analyzing novels using literary criticism databases.
Constantly busy but a great way to develop and fine tune our research skills in a number of different avenues.

Monkey Hunt

Preschoolers continue to help find our missing animals that keep escaping our reading books!! This week monkeys escaped from the book Warning Do Not Open This Book / Adam Lehrhaupt. Luckily our fearless littles were able to find the last monkey and put him back in the book!!!
