Newton South PTSO requested a matching donation to GELF in the sum of $1000.00. The NNHS PTSO agreed on $1000.00 for this academic year. Rather than having a predetermined annual amount, the PTSO will decide each year, the GELF donation. The amount will be listed under MISC in the PTSO budget. GELF relies on funding thru a few different avenues: personal donations, benefits from 3 high school concerts, and a GELF dinner will be hosted on March 26, 2011 at the Neighborhood Club in West Newton. Tickets are $125 pp and can be purchased thru Newton Schools Foundation’s website or via mail to NSF. Finally, students not requiring GELF assistance who participate in a High School travel program pay an additional $50.00 which funds the GELF scholarships
The PTSO received the gift of $1000.00 from the Class of 2010.
Celebration has raised $1097.00 to date
