Virtual Curriculum Enrichment is a new and exciting initiative, brought to you by our very own members of the Newman community. This effort is designed to help supplement our remote Wednesdays and will include fun virtual presentations on a variety of topics, based on the interest or expertise of the presenter. Also included are live Q&A sessions by the presenters themselves!

Students are invited to view the week's presentation sometime before Wednesday, at a time that is convenient for your family. On Wednesdays at 3pm, that week's presenter will be available for a 15 minute LIVE (virtual) Zoom Q&A session!

Weekly videos and Wednesday Q&A sessions will continue through March. The presentations will be on a variety of topics, based on the interest or expertise of the presenter. Presenters are parents, grandparents, and members of the Newman/Needham community. We are grateful to our presenters for taking the time to create these wonderful sessions!
