Order Newtonopoly in time for the holidays!

The Newton North business students are working on a new, fundraising project: Newtonopoly. Newtonopoly will be similar to the famous board game, but it will represent many local businesses in and around Newton, such as Wegmans, Legal Sea Food, and The Village Bank. The Newtonopoly team has been hard at work preparing for the release, and I am happy to announce we are ready to take pre-orders! As a special promotion, if you pre-order, we will be offering FREE shipping.

You can pre-order the game with this link: http://newtonnorthschoolstore.com/products/newtonopoly

College Planning Guide helps families prepare for life after NNHS

Developed several years ago by a group of parents and counselors under the auspices of School Council, the College Planning Guide has been updated to include expanded sections for student athletes and students who benefit from support services. The comprehensive booklet is given to all 10th graders during sophomore seminars, thanks to financial support from the North PTSO. It is available online at this link.

Your PTSO membership dues go straight to work at Newton North

Many thanks to all of the families who have already paid their PTSO dues for this year, If you have not yet paid, please take two minutes to PAY YOUR DUES HERE. Paying dues now will save you time on Back to School Night (September 22).

The PTSO is your direct connection for supporting your student's school. The PTSO funds many Newton North activities and events, both educational and social. Here is a partial list of what your money pays for.

Thanks to all who made Celebration 2015 a success!

Celebration was a night to remember for seniors and their guests! After several months of planning by a team of volunteers, the "Grease" theme came to life at Rydell High School with a glittering entrance featuring lighted columns, a red carpet, balloon columns, poster-sized photos of students. Main Street was transformed into a festive carnival with a balloon arch; cotton candy, popcorn, and hot dogs; a raffle table laden with prizes and buzzing with seniors; and an exciting casino. The cafeteria became a classic '50s diner with a pink-and-black color scheme and lavish offerings of food donated from area businesses. Other entertainment included a photo station, karaoke, psychics, tattoo and carictature artists, and a DJ. The transformation took place from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. with the help of 160+ volunteers, and the party started at 11:30 p.m.

On behalf of the seniors and their parents, the PTSO thanks Celebration Chair Eileen Rielly; area leaders Cindy Laughrea, Michelle Markert, and Regina Wing; and team leaders Istvan Bonyhay, Randy Ellis, Barbara Joseph, Paul Keyes, Jody Klein, Antoinette Lyons, Christine McLennan, Jodi Narahara, Scott Roth, Una Simmons, Gail Stein, and Paul Zagaeski for all of their hard work. 

Celebration achieved its goal of keeping Newton North seniors local and safe by providing an evening of great entertainment and delicious food in an amazing setting. Thank you to everyone in the Newton North community who volunteered time or expertise, and thanks to all who donated funds or raffle items in order to make Celebration a success. Thanks to Newton North administrators, office staff, custodians, Beals House, Graphics, and Theatre Ink for going the extra mile for us, as always!

Special thanks to area businesses that supported Celebration by donating food and helping with food handling: Anna’s Taqueria, Antoine’s Bakery, Bertuccis, Newtonville Pizza, O'Hara's, Russo's, Tango Mango, Wally's Ice Cream, Wegmans, Whole Foods, and Whitsons.
