About the PTSO

Your PTSO strives to bring together the parents and guardians of our diverse student body in ways that are both enriching and enjoyable.  We invite you to join the North PTSO community; to take advantage of the many educational, cultural, and fundraising events throughout the year; and to use these great opportunities to socialize, volunteer, and learn as you connect with other parents and guardians.

  • Socialize at Northside – Porchside, a progressive meal for all parents/guardians.
  • Volunteer for committees like Teacher Appreciation (providing food to our hardworking teachers and staff); and events like Celebration, an after‐prom gathering for all seniors. We have several volunteer openings this year including class liaison and Educational Excellence campaign co-chair.
  • Learn something new at PTSO events, including the Just Think: Teens Making Smart Choices prevention expo.

Support the Newton North PTSO

The Newton North PTSO depends on your contributions to fund school activities, enrichment materials for classrooms, and events– both social and educational. PTSO-funded items include prom bus transportation, student planners, and staff appreciation events. Make a donation to the PTSO here.
