Senior Outdoor Cooperative

Dear Newton South Senior Parents/Guardians,

PTSO wanted to let you know of a new program created by our Newton South teachers to support our Seniors.

Newton South Teachers Eliza Tyack, Alan Reinstein and Dave Weintraub have organized a new program called the Senior Outdoor Cooperative, which aims to bring together Newton South faculty and seniors outdoors in ways that are safely socially distanced and yet still provide opportunities for meaningful connection, discovery, and togetherness during a remote school year.  About 200 hundred seniors have signed up to participate at some point.

As of Sunday, November 8th, the Cooperative has led the first batch of five expeditions ranging from affinity group meet-ups at Chestnut Hill Reservoir to ambitious hikes to Mt. Monadnock hike with about twenty other seniors.
