Welcome to the Weather at Ben-Hem!

In 2015, the Natick Education Foundation awarded a grant to fund a weather station located at Bennett-Hemenway Elementary school.  In January of 2016, a WeatherBug station was installed giving local weather data access to all Natick residents and teaching tools to all K-5 schools in Natick. Many thanks to Ben-Hem parent Krissy Fernandes for spear-heading this effort for the entire district!

WEATHER THIS WEEK IN NATICK: STUDENT WEATHER REPORTS
To get students excited about the weather, we have started our own YouTube channel (NPS Weather)!  Students from Natick elementary and middle schools will have the opportunity to record weather reports and contribute to the channel.  The pilot episode was released on 2/3/2016.

BEN-HEM WEATHER IN THE NEWS
We sent out a press release the day after the Weather Bug system was installed and it was picked up by the Metrowest Daily News (http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/article/20160127/NEWS/160126402)!  Also, WBZ (CBS Boston) is partners with Weather Bug and has offered to have one of their meteorologists come to Ben-Hem to talk to the kids AND do an on-air segment.  So exciting!
