Your family should have received an email requesting that you confirm or correct your family’s information for the Newton South PTSO student directory. The confirmation email is only sent to the primary email contact listed in the directory. If you have received a confirmation notice, please click the link at the bottom of the notice and follow the directions. If you did not receive a confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org, check your spam/junk folder or any other email accounts used by your family for the PTSO; if the message is not there, email the Directory Committee at email@example.com so we can figure it out.
At the end of the confirmation process, we will ask you to pay your PTSO membership dues. The suggested donation for PTSO dues is $70. You will receive a printed copy of the directory as well as access to the password protected online version as one of the benefits of paying your membership dues. However, the $70 dues are not a payment for the directory. Dues are the main source of fundraising for the PTSO and all the funds are used for student and teacher related activities, including financial support to academic departments and to teachers through our grant program. Many parents find that the PTSO Student Directory is a great resource. In addition to contact information for South families, the directory includes information about the administration and staff at South. But even if you are not all that interested in the directory, we still need your financial support for the PTSO! So please contribute by paying your PTSO dues. The printed version of the directory will be distributed at Back-to-School night on September 26th.
If the suggested donation of $70 is a financial hardship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any such conversation will be kept in strict confidence. No one will be denied a directory due to financial constraints.
