Sustainability students revitalize recycling at North

The sustainability classes taught by Ms. Anndy Dannenberg (biology) and Ms. Kathryn Teissier (world language) are working with School Council to revitalize and promote recycling at Newton North. Changes in the international market for recycled American goods are pushing Newton citizens, including students, to reassess their current recycling habits and learn new guidelines.

Many hands make light work: Volunteer for the PTSO this year!

Newton North depends on the generosity and energy of parent/guardian volunteers to help keep our community informed, connected, and strong. Can you help? We have immediate openings, with varying time commitments. Please consider the excellent opportunities, below, which will allow you to connect more deeply with the vibrant school community and other parents/guardians. If you prefer, we can match your interests with needed roles. Have questions or want to volunteer? Please contact

Adults and teens gather at Just Think Expo to learn about community resources

The NNHS PTSO’s 10th annual Just Think: Teens Making Smart Choices Expo on January 7, 2020, featured local non-profits and, in the evening, teen-friendly attractions that drew middle schoolers, high schoolers, and parents/guardians. Thank you to all the exhibitors (see list here), volunteers, and speakers who worked together to help create this year’s expo!

Download the New Directory App: Membership Toolkit

The former app for accessing the North directory, MySchoolAnywhere, is history. Send it to the digital trash can. The PTSO has made the transition to a new directory platform and mobile app, Membership Toolkit. Download it from your favorite app store. Log in using the email address and password that you set up on the Membership Toolkit website, when you validated your student and family contact information. The online directory can also be found by logging in to Membership Toolkit.

Discounted Charlie Cards are available for students

Student Charlie Cards (S-Cards) can be obtained for free from your student’s House Office. A student card is valid for one year, from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31. It offers student discounts on the MBTA bus, subway, ferries, and commuter rail, including a $30 monthly T pass (regular cost is $90). A monthly pass or up to $10 can be placed on the S-card. Funds can be deposited onto the card on board a bus, at a fare vending machine or at a subway station.
