NNHS InvenTeamThe World Health Organization deemed 2011-2020 the Decade of Action for Road Safety, and noted that road traffic injuries are one of the top three leading causes of death for ages 5-44 in developing countries. In 2004, road traffic injuries resulted in more than 1.27 million deaths, which is almost equal to the number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.

Recently, Winnie, the Communications Leader, gave a speech at Natick High School concerning how we, the NNHS InvenTeam, are dealing with this issue. Please watch the video to get a sense of the urgency of this Decade of Action.

To create awareness, we would like this message to go viral. After you watch the video, please spread the word by forwarding this message to as many of your family, friends, and associates: http://nnhsinventeam.com/

Each time someone watches the video, we have a better chance of creating awareness around the world.

Educational Excellence Campaign

 The Educational Excellence Campaign is pleased and excited to present this year's project: the Newton North High School Green Campus.

The Green Campus focus will bring learning beyond the classroom walls, and into the green spaces around the campus. Newton North has pioneered many programs that take learning beyond the classroom. The Green Campus Project, which will benefit any class that wants a unique setting and approach, is a collaboration between the Biology, Greenengineering, and Carpentry Departments.

Please help us reach our Educational Excellence goal of $25,000 for this year's project. Please look for the Ed Ex brochures in the mail today. To read more please visit http://edex.northptso.org/goals
