Still Time to RSVP for Freshman Parent/Guardian Information Sessions

There is still time to register to attend one of the freshman parent/guardian information sessions.  If your child is not a freshman but is new to South, you are also welcome to attend.  The evening is geared toward an overview of freshman year but includes general information about the high school.  These meetings are for adults only, and parents/guardians need only attend one session as the same information is covered at each. Because these sessions are held in the homes of host families and there are a limited number of slots, we have set up the rsvp responses so that only one parent/guardian may register to attend a session at this time. Principal Joel Stembridge will speak for one hour giving an overview of Newton South and then answer questions for the second hour. Please RSVP below for the date that works best for you. If you are unable to attend any of these sessions, you will have an opportunity to hear about freshman year at the Freshman Parent Night at the High School on September 7th.

Monday, August 28th, 7PM for parents/guardians of students in the METCO program at the home of Arlene and John Saia, 218 Maple St., West Roxbury.  Meet METCO Guidance Counselor Katani Sumner along with Principal Stembridge. Click here to RSVP.

Tuesday, August 29th, 7PM at the home of May Chiu, 111 Lincoln St., Newton Highlands. Parking on Bowdoin or Lincoln Streets. Click here to RSVP.  This session is currently full.  If you would like to be placed on the waitlist for this session, you can do so on the registration page.  We often have a few cancellations closer to the date of the session, and will let you know if space becomes available. If your plans have changed and you are not able to attend this session, please cancel your registration to make space for others to register. And if you have registered for two spots using separate registrations, please cancel one spot so that we have room for one parent/guardian from all families interested in attending.

Wednesday, August 30th, 7PM  for parents/guardians of students receiving special education services at the home of Suzanne and Lee Feldman, 8 Fredana Rd., Waban.  Meet Special Education Department Chair Melissa Gamble along with Principal Stembridge. Click here to RSVP.
