Outreach

 

In addition to supporting our school, the PTO also participates in outreach programs within our community. We connect families with resources in town and help communicate information to our members.



The elementary school communities in Sudbury are incredibly gracious contributors to the Sudbury Food Pantry. They provide nearly 35% of what the Food Pantry distributes each month to 60-80 families. Every donated item allows the pantry to serve its mission of helping any individual or family in need. More information about the Sudbury Food Pantry can be found at http://sudburyfoodpantry.org/about/Food Pantry is the largest community service initiative at Nixon.  All members of the community are asked to donate food pantry items to the drive.  

 

Donation dates will be communicated via our Nixon Newsletter!

For questions, email FoodPantry@NixonPTO.org

 


 

The Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) was created over 40 years ago by urban and suburban educational collaborators who believed that all children should have access to quality education in suburban school districts. The Sudbury Public School PK-8 system enrolled its first students on January 27, 1975, when forty students were placed in the five Sudbury Elementary Schools. Currently, this grant-funded program supports seventy students annually. Students completing grade 8, and any other student(s) leaving the Sudbury METCO Program, are replaced with the number of new elementary students needed to maintain the set number of 70 for the next fiscal year.
