New to Newton North? Come to a meet and greet this fall!

Parents/guardians who are new to Newton North (and any other parents/guardians who like to meet new people) are invited to join the PTSO for a meet and greet on two dates this fall. Working full-time? We have a Saturday for you!

  • Thursday, September 7, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, October 14, 9:00-10:00 a.m.

Both sessions will be held in the International Cafe. A tour of Newton North will be offered. Look forward to seeing you there :)

Volunteers needed to make display cases sparkle

Newton North needs two volunteers to spend two hours max emptying the display cases in the main lobby, dusting the cases and the items to be displayed, and returning the items to the case in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement. The keys for the display case are in the main office. Timing is flexible—the work can be done any time the building is open. Please email co_presidents@northptso.org to volunteer.

Student planners will be available during SECOND week of school

Please pardon the delay! The student planners are here and will be available beginning on Monday, September 11. The Newton North PTSO will once again provide student planners for all 9th graders in their homerooms. PTSO volunteers will also sell planners to students in other grades for $5 during the week of September 11 before school (Tuesday through Thursday) and during lunch (Monday through Thursday). Thank you for your patience.
