Matthew Barach, candidate for Sudbury Public Schools Committee, would like to see incoming sixth-graders with tablet devices throughout their time at the middle school.
It is imperative that Sudbury Public Schools’ commitment to upgrading technological infrastructure and use of cutting-edge technology both remain priorities to aide our teachers and enrich the students’ education. To further these goals, Sudbury schools should develop a program to ensure that every sixth-grader upon entry to the middle school is granted the use of an iPad, or similar tablet device, for the duration of their time at Curtis. This program will enhance the middle school experience, ensure that SPS continues to deliver innovative classroom instruction, and be an exciting addition of tools available to students making the transition from elementary to middle school. Wellesley Public Schools recently announced a similar …

Sam Shealy led the way with four awards.
UPDATED: 2:40 P.M. Curtis Middle School was honored with 10 awards at this year's Scholastic Art Awards. This is a new record for the school, art teacher Scott Greenaway said.

At their final meeting before the new school year begins, members of the Sudbury Public Schools Committee heard the details of a new daily schedule for students at Curtis Middle School.
