Enjoying the Spring!

Senior Memoir Project

One of our favorite assignments of the year comes right at the end. Seniors come to the library to choose a memoir. The memoir of their choice should evoke curiosity, excitement and interest in the subject. Students were enthusiastic pouring over choices.







Happy Sassy

Sassy has had a great week, bringing smiles and laughter to everyone at school and to the track team after school!!

We Found Spring!! (Or Maybe Summer!)



Dive Into  a Good Book!

It was finally a warm week in New England and what a difference! The sun was shining, birds were chirping and there was definitely a happiness in the air! We have created a bulletin to honor the nice weather and hope it will continue to last!!

Your Rights: Civil Liberties Court Cases

Mr. Costigan's Civic's classes are researching landmark civil liberties court cases in the United States and their impact in historical and current landscapes. Students are using databases such as "Issues & Controversies in American History" as well as the numerous books specific to their court case and/or amendment. Great way to end the week!

The Countdown is On!

It's The Final Countdown

We are back from April vacation and while it did not feel like April, more like January with the snow sleet and rain, it seems like everyone is refreshed and ready to take on the last two months of school!









 Local Authors Visit

We were so fortunate to have local authors Jennifer McMahon and Francisco Stork speak to Ms. Napier-Bernstein's Creative Writing Class. They discussed the writing process and what goes into creating stories. The class had great questions and both were a delight! Thank you to Ms. Carrick for always finding authors to come speak as part of our visiting author series!

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!
