Superintendent MacLeod Seeks Input at Chamber of Commerce Event

Critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity, the four core competencies of 21st century learning, provided the starting point for an interactive discussion between Superintendent Dr. Cathy MacLeod and attendees at the "Meet and Greet" event hosted by the Hopkinton Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, September 17, 2013.

After an introduction by Chamber Executive Director Tim Kilduff that set the stage for the issues that MacLeod had signed on for in the coming year, MacLeod talked about her background, her love of learning and the importance of the classroom teacher. But it was the question of what had changed most in the last 25 years that sparked an exchange of ideas and provided the basis for a very interesting discussion that lasted for the remainder of the meeting.

Hopkinton Public Library Readies for Peace Day 2013

In 2001, the United Nations established September 21st as a global day of peace due in part to the efforts of the organization Peace One Day. Inspired by the organization's dedication towards fostering global unity, Hopkinton residents Robin Batchelder and Donna Blackstone helped establish a town-wide Peace Day celebration in 2011. And as a way to launch this year's celebration, patrons at the library were asked to help make a chain of 1,000 origami cranes, a tradition that started as a way to honor a young Japanese girl stricken with leukemia shortly after the bombing of Hiroshima. The chain created at the library will be donated to a still to be determined organization as a symbol of peace.

The Peace Day celebration continues Friday, September 20th at 7pm at the library and will feature music by Hopkinton singer and songwriter Amanda Maffei as well as a screening of the Peace One Day film, "The Day After Peace".

Sept. 20, 7- 8:30: Get inspired with music, poetry reading a documentary! Featuring local singer and song writer Amanda Maffei.

"Peace Day" is a day for individuals everywhere to become involved in the peace process as well as a day that provides a window of opportunity for aid agencies to carry out lifesaving work.
