GREENFIELD — Every Tuesday, Emma Pickle comes to Newton School to listen as students read to her.

Sometimes, Emma goes to classrooms and says hello to students and teachers, knowing very well her way around the elementary school.

On Monday, Emma visited about 50 kindergartners to thank them for their fundraising efforts as they presented a $500 check from this year’s schoolwide “Penny Wars.”

We are proud to announce that Robert Provost, Jr., of Greenfield High School, is this year’s eighth-grade Ambassador of Project 351.  He joins more than 370 other young leaders across the Commonwealth in a statewide youth-led service initiative to lead positive change in the lives of children. Project 351 is a non-profit, statewide youth-driven service organization that convenes an eighth grader from every city and town in Massachusetts for a transformative year of leadership development, enrichment, and impact through unique service opportunities.
