Nixon Student Advisory Council Has Us Reaching For The Stars!

Nixon has a Student Advisory Council with 12 to 14 student members, Kindergarten through Grade 5. The council meets with the principal two times a month and the children participate in two month "terms". This shift in council members allows for a larger number of students to participate throughout the school year. The goal of the Student Advisory Council is for students to share their perspective and voice their opinions about topics important to our Nixon School community.


Recently, a fifth grade council member shared an idea about how to incorporate goal setting for the children of Nixon School. This idea became a favorite of the council members and now has taken shape in an optional way for all children.


The children are very excited about their idea to support children in trying new things and working more toward the Nixon Core Value of Aiming High.


Here are some details of how it works:


  1. Every classroom teacher received a star for each student.

  2. This is an optional activity. Students can write a goal for each week in the star and then cut out their star to be posted.

  3. Stars are posted in the hallway near the cafeteria.

  4. Mrs. Woods and members of the Student Advisory Council place the stars up on the walls for all to see!

  5. Just for fun! Students can color in a snowman and cut it out to go next to the stars in the hallway. The snowman is more of a seasonal activity idea :) that was thought of as a fun addition.

Nixon Elementary School - Cultural Discussion Forum Part II

In October, Nixon hosted a community forum where parents and community leaders came together to discuss culture and the experiences of our children at the elementary school level. You are invited to join the continuation of the conversation at the upcoming forums in December*, March, and June. Please look for a date, time and meeting links in upcoming communications.


In preparation for the next Cultural Discussion Forum in January, in and effort to better understand the interests of the Nixon School Community, please fill out the following form.


If you are interested in being a panelist please email susan_woods@sudbury.k12.ma.us


Note: *We had planned for a December forum date, scheduling has proved difficult for this month. So, we will now look onto the week of January 3 and January 10, more to come! The March and June planned forums remain planned for 2022.

COVID Vaccinations

Many students are getting their COVID-19 vaccinations now that children 5-11 are eligible. It is important to know that people who are fully vaccinated do not need to participate in Test and Stay or quarantine when they are within 3 feet of a person who tests positive for COVID-19. For more information about vaccinations for children, please visit this page of the CDC website.
