Coaches will ensure that all players feel welcome, always have a ball at their feet, and leave each class having learned new moves to practice at home, or in other soccer or Futsal games.
These sessions are pressure-free and fun-filled! Class will run 6 Tuesdays evenings, March 6th – April 10th at Mason Rice Elementary School. Grades 1-2, 6:00 – 7:00 pm and Grades 3-5, 7:00 – 8:00 pm. For more information, or to register, visit newtoncommunityed.org or call 617-559-6999.

Tema Siegel, an alum of Newton South, currently a freshman pursuing a BFA at the Chicago College of Performing Arts asks that you take a minute to check out the Kickstarter for her debut EP. The EP features five pop/soul songs with hints of jazz and folk influence. It may interest you if you enjoy artists such as Lake Street Dive, Regina Spektor, Sara Bareilles, and more.
As many of you know, music has been her greatest passion and focus in life so far. More recently, she’s begun to explore composition.
Tema composed, recorded, and managed this project over the course of the past 9 months (it began as a senior project at South), and now needs some help getting it on its feet. Her Kickstarter is 70% funded with just 11 days to go but if she doesn’t reach the goal of $6,000 by February 25th, she won’t receive any of the donations made thus far.
