Kindness Week kicks off today at Northeast!  There are a few different ways to get involved and participate with your student(s):

Community Thank-you/ Recess Duty Volunteers: We are looking for a few parents to help out with Recess Stations on Thursday, January 31st during each block of recess. The students will be working on a simple project to thank members of the Waltham Community. I have attached a sign-up sheet for each recess. Please sign up to help out.

Diaper Drive
The Diaper Box is up in the Northeast lobby and accepting donations all week.  All diapers will be donated to Waltham’s Diaper Depot, which provides diapers to families in Waltham who are in need. Sizes 4, 5 and 6 are of greatest need.  We accept new packages or opened packages of loose and unused diapers.
