Show gratitude by helping with dinner for teachers and staff on November 30

Our annual NNHS PTSO Teacher Appreciation dinner will take place on Thursday, November 30, from 3:30-6:30 p.m. This is the first day of parent-teacher conferences, when many of the faculty will work an especially long day. We will be showing our appreciation for their hard work by providing them with a warm and festive Italian feast.

Here’s how you can help.

Enjoy spending other people's money? Two volunteers needed for Tiger Talks board

Two parent/guardian volunteers are needed to help make decisions about bringing in speakers for Newton North. A small group will meet several times per year to determine how the money raised for Tiger Talks, last year's Educational Excellence fundraiser, will be spent. If you would like to help with this interesting and important effort, please contact

Living in a Smartphone World: What does it mean for students, families, and educators? to be held on December 6, 7:00 p.m.

Please save the date for a special superintendent’s forum on December 6, 7:00-8:30 p.m., in the Newton South Auditorium. Inspired by the Atlantic Monthly piece entitled “Have smartphones destroyed a generation?,” the forum will provide information and resources on the impact of technology and social media, as well as the opportunity to discuss the role of educators and families in navigating this space.
