  • Monday, June 2/Tuesday, June 3 (Midnight – 4AM) – SouthFest. Newton South’s after-prom party for all NSHS seniors and their guests (whether or not they’ve attended prom), will run on June 3 from 12 midnight – 4AM. Once students have left for prom (~6PM), parents are welcome to come to South and see how the SouthFest volunteers have transformed the school into an amazing (secret) themed party destination. Senior parents may not stay to chaperone once students arrive at midnight. As SouthFest solely depends on donations, we would greatly appreciate your donation to make this year a success! Click here to donate.
  • Monday, June 9, 5-7PM – Graduation in the Field House at NSHS. Information about tickets, parking, mandatory rehearsal, etc., to follow.
