Volunteer

Newton North has a robust parent and guardian community. Our PTSO strength and success depends on the generosity and energy of parent/guardian volunteers to help keep our community informed, connected, and strong. This is a great way to support our hardworking teachers and staff and, of course, all of our students. Can you help? Please consider the excellent opportunities below.
