This Week: November 21

Monday, November 21 

11:00-12:00 – visit from The New York Times Student Journeys and Putney Student Travel in the atrium.

The New York Times Student Journeys and Putney Student Travel are visiting Monday, Nov. 21st in the atrium. They offer a wide variety of programs for high school students including Community Service in Latin America, Asia, and Africa as well as Language Learning in Europe and Latin America. For Middle School they offer trips to Costa Rica, Spain, New Zealand and Australia. New York Times Student Journeys offers opportunities for high school students to travel to fascinating places and explore themes associated with Times coverage of local issues—from social justice in the south, to the effects of climate change on a remote atoll in Fiji, to food security in Italy. Students benefit from the organization’s special understanding and insider’s view as they uncover and bring back stories from the field.

For more information you can visit their websites, www.goputney.com and www.nytimes.com/studentjourneys. Pick up one of their catalogs and ask them any questions you have while they are here in person!

Final Week of the All-School Thanksgiving Food Drive
We’ve entered the final week of our all-school Thanksgiving Food Drive which benefits Wayside Food Programs and is sponsored by Middle School Student Government. We are collecting the following items:

  • Canned tuna
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta sauce
  • Cereal
  • Kids’ healthy snacks (for after-school programs)

We will gather as a community on Tuesday, November 22 to hear from Wayside speakers and Waynflete musicians to celebrate the spirit of generosity. Our sixth grade will sort and deliver the food to Wayside Food Programs.
