It's nearing the end of the first school year at the new Natick High School, but a large number of people are still parking illegally.
It's raining in Natick so you don't want to walk all the way from the parking lot to the front door of the new high school. Instead, you decide to park either in the fire lane or the bike lane. Parents, students and even some Town Meeting members have parked illegally at the new Natick High School throughout the year. It doesn't have to be raining. It doesn't have to be because they're just running inside for five minutes. People park in places where they're not supposed to whenever there are events held at the high school. The bike lane in the semi-circle in front of the school is the best example of illegal parking. Prior to last night's Annual Senior Internship Showcase Event, Patch counted at least 23 cars parked illegally in front of …

As part of the before school fitness program, Lilja School students went through an obstacle course Wednesday morning.
Each morning many Lilja School students participate in BOKS, a before school fitness program that is designed to jump start kids' brains early in the morning so they're ready for class. BOKS was founded in Natick by Kathleen Tullie, and it has since become sponsored by Reebok (hence the name BOKS) and spread all over the country. On Wednesday parents and teachers involved with BOKS set up an obstacle course for the kids. Thanks to Paul Blankman, who shot this video and was nice enough to send us the YouTube link.
