Significant change for Mendon Upton iPad Program

The Mendon Upton School Committee voted Monday night to change its iPad policy after the ACLU of Massachusetts filed a formal complaint on August 15.

A message from Nipmuc Principal John Clements regarding today’s evacuation

What We Leave Behind -by Madeleine Laplante-Dube

It's always been something soft to fall back on, a simple, fuzzy comfort that I never quite put into storage. I'm not saying it's perfect - I think it could use some mental expansion in some departments, like any … [Read more...]

Nipmuc Prom

At 5 p.m. on Friday Nipmuc Principal, John Clements, took to the stage to kick off Promenade. First he thanked all the volunteers and sponsors who made After Prom possible.
