About the PTSO

Welcome to the Newton North PTSO
Your PTSO strives to bring together the parents and guardians of our diverse student body in ways that are both enriching and enjoyable.  We invite you to join the North PTSO community; to take advantage of the many educational, cultural, and fundraising events throughout the year; and to use these great opportunities to socialize, volunteer, and learn as you connect with other parents and guardians.

  • Socialize at Northside Dining Adventure, a progressive meal starting at Newton North High School for all parents/guardians.
  • Volunteer for committees or events, including the Teacher Appreciation Dinner, providing food to our hardworking teachers and staff; and Celebration, an after‐prom gathering for all seniors. We have several volunteer openings this year; please go to www.NorthPTSO.org to read more.
  • Learn something new at PTSO events, including the Just Think: Teens Making Smart Choices prevention expo.
