Many hands make light work: Volunteer for the PTSO this year!

Newton North depends on the generosity and energy of parent/guardian volunteers to help keep our community informed, connected, and strong. Can you help? We have immediate openings, with varying time commitments. Please consider the excellent opportunities, below, which will allow you to connect more deeply with the vibrant school community and other parents/guardians. If you prefer, we can match your interests with needed roles. Have questions or want to volunteer? Please contact

The giving season: Students collecting donations for Cradles to Crayons

Download the New Directory App: Membership Toolkit

The former app for accessing the North directory, MySchoolAnywhere, is history. Send it to the digital trash can. The PTSO has made the transition to a new directory platform and mobile app, Membership Toolkit. Download it from your favorite app store. Log in using the email address and password that you set up on the Membership Toolkit website, when you validated your student and family contact information. The online directory can also be found by logging in to Membership Toolkit.

Discounted Charlie Cards are available for students

Student Charlie Cards (S-Cards) can be obtained for free from your student’s House Office. A student card is valid for one year, from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31. It offers student discounts on the MBTA bus, subway, ferries, and commuter rail, including a $30 monthly T pass (regular cost is $90). A monthly pass or up to $10 can be placed on the S-card. Funds can be deposited onto the card on board a bus, at a fare vending machine or at a subway station.
