Still Time to Register for Freshman Parent Information Sessions

We have four remaining information sessions for the parents/guardians of incoming freshman. Please RSVP for one of the following evenings with Principal Joel Stembridge. 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.  If we have additional openings as the sessions get closer, we will let parents know and welcome a second parent/guardian to register then. Principal 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.
