Fuller Middle School

Framingham Public Schools (FPS), in collaboration with the Cooler Communities Program and the City of Framingham is inviting all residents to Framingham’s third Cooler Communities Fair at

Fuller Middle School
31 Flagg Drive
Saturday, April 27, 2024
from 10 am to 1pm

FPS students from schools across the city will again share their wide range of projects and exhibits on all topics related to climate change and solutions with parents and the wider community. From fast fashion to climate friendly food, to geothermal energy, to the impact of climate change on our ecosystems, to bee-friendly gardening….all visitors will learn a lot. Alongside the students, Framingham’ s sustainability committee and selected service providers will have lots of information for parents and community members on how to save on energy bills and live in more climate-friendly ways. There will also be free – and delicious! – food, free ice cream as well as fun games and activities for children. The event is free.

The Framingham Cooler Communities program is  supported by the FPS Office of Equity, Diversity, and Community Engagement, the FPS Community Resource Development Department, students and faculty of various elementary and middle schools, the Framingham High School Environmental Awareness Club and the Sustainability Committee. Parents and families are encouraged to attend to learn about opportunities  to help reduce the community’s carbon footprint and their own utility costs.

Here is Framingham’s Mayor Sisitsky at last year’s event.
