“Random Act of Kindness” from PTSO

IMG_3964On Tuesday, December 15, the PTSO hosted a special Term 2 student-appreciation event, providing free cookies and hot chocolate with whipped cream to help brighten the students’ day during crunch time before the holidays. Despite balmy weather outside, approximately 1,000 cups of hot chocolate were served. Many thanks to NSHS parents Christina Brooks and Didi von Deck for organizing the event!

The idea for random acts of kindness originated from a discussion with student representatives in the South Senate and PTSO last spring, and was brought to fruition by the NSHS Emotional Wellbeing Committee with help from Vice Principal Candice Beerman, Maria Mastroianni at Whitson’s, Building Aide Addrene Coney and the school custodians. If you would like to join this committee and help with other future random acts of kindness for NSHS students, please contact the PTSO at info@newtonsouthptso.org.
