Northside Dining Adventure entertains and engages

About 180 parents/guardians turned out for an energetic evening of friendship and shared dining at the homes of 24 hospitable hosts on Friday, October 27. Guests, hosts, and organizers enjoyed connecting with friends and meeting new people. Participants modeled civic engagement and community building; as Principal Turner stated in his welcome remarks, these are qualities he is emphasizing this year at Newton North.

After School Program supports struggling students

The After School Program is designed for students in need of additional academic support. Although the overwhelming majority of participants are in 9th grade, the program also includes 10th and 11th graders who may be struggling. Newton North staff oversee small groups of students, supporting them with homework completion, test/quiz preparation, time management, and organization. The program takes place twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays, after school from 3:00-4:15 p.m. Staff communicate with parents/guardians and classroom teachers.
