PTSO seeks student and parent rep for Food Service Advisory Group starting June 2019

Newton PTOs are partnering with NPS administration and the School Committee to form a Food Service Advisory Group (FSAG). The purpose of this group is to create a two-way dialogue between families and NPS food service partner--Whitsons Culinary Group--so that food service in the Newton Public Schools meets expectations and can be continuously improved.

Your PTSO donations go straight to work at Newton North all year long--thank you for your support!

Many thanks to all of the families who paid their PTSO dues, donated to Educational Excellence, attended Northside Dining Adventure, and supported Celebration this year! With your help, Newton North did many important things, including purchasing cutting-edge science equipment for labs and classrooms.
