From PA Co-Chairs Barbara Ito and Polly Maroni
Welcome to February! There are a lot of activities going on this month and we hope that you will join in. Go to a basketball game, a hockey game, or further afield to Nashoba to watch the ski team, there are so many sporting events to see. As well, the Middle School play will have performances Feb. 9-11 and the NTC musical, Feb. 25-27 and Mar. 2-4.

Get more involved with the PA! During February, we begin to look for volunteers for next year’s PA Board. Click here and indicate what you would like to do. There is a description of each position. We welcome everyone to think about how he or she might like to participate in our very active, fun and engaging parent organization.
As the weather is becoming increasingly colder, please be conscious of idling.
Did you know… this idling myth? Idling is good for your engine. Actually, excessive idling can actually damage your engine components, including cylinders, spark plugs and exhaust systems. Fuel is only partially combusted when idling because an engine does not operate at its peak temperature. This leads to the build up of fuel residues on cylinder walls that can damage engine components and increase fuel consumption.
Have a great month and we hope to see you at the PA meeting on Monday, February 22 from 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. in the Castle Library.
