PAST EVENTS

Run For Good
On June 9th, 2019 Birches hosted "Run For Good," a fundraising event held in collaboration with Saucony and the Waltham Boys + Girls Club. The weather was perfect for the day's events which included trail running, yard games and delicious pizza served by Posto’s amazing food truck! We are so thankful, not only to Saucony, but to all of the volunteers who helped make this event a roaring success! We hope we have inspired kids and families to continue running all summer long!

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

November 2, 2018 Lincoln town officials joined board members, supporters, friends, students, parents, faculty, and staff to cut this ribbon, officially opening Birches School at our new property at 100 Bedford Road. Our brilliant art teacher and her daughter, a Birches student, created the birch bark-decorated ribbon you see above. Below, the Head of School addresses students and guests and then three of our “founding students” (now in their seventh year at Birches, representing grades six, seven, and eight) cut the ribbon. The final photograph shows two of those three students with their mothers, the co-founders of the school.
