Today the #WoburnStrong campaign has a Throwback Thursday. Here’s our take on the popular social media theme:
Share a photo here, and elsewhere on social media, that shows a good memory of something in Woburn that you look forward to getting back to. This might be having a meal at a local restaurant or visiting another local business you miss. Or maybe it is a special community event, school or other organization that isn’t operating as usual now.
When you share elsewhere on social media, be sure to use the #WoburnStrong tag along with #TBT so we can find it! And tag the WoburnStrong Giving Campaign when you share elsewhere on Facebook.

She provides personalized academic support to students based on each child's needs and learning style.

The Woburn Parent's Network, a collaboration between Woburn Public Schools, SCI and the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club, was just launched two weeks ago with a great presentation by Jen Mahon on setting up family routines. Last week John Mattleman presented on mental health issues affecting our kids during quarantine. The goal of the WPN is to create a support group of parents in Woburn who can lean on each other in good times and crazy pandemic times alike. Eventually, WPN will have in person events and meetings to build more camaraderie within the group. For now, WPN will host Zoom presentations on topics that will hopefully help us all grow though this difficult time rather than just "get through" it.
This program from the Woburn Parent Network is funded through CHNA 15 DoN funds from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, coordinated by SCI in partnership with Woburn Public Schools and the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn.
