Important Information About Back-to-School Night on Wed., Sept. 26 at 7:00PM

Back-to-School Night, this Wednesday, September 26, at 7PM, is an important time for parents/guardians to meet their students’ teachers and learn about what happens in the classroom. Vice-Principal Candice Beermann sent  an email to families on Friday  with details about the evening. Parents can access a copy of their schedule for the evening in the Aspen Family/Student portal by going to the published reports section on the right where you will find a document entitled “Back to School Night South”. Students will also receive a paper copy of the schedule in advisory on Tuesday. Ask your student for your copy.  A map of the school can be found here.

Back-to-School Night is the busiest evening of the year at Newton South. Please keep in mind that Brandeis Road will be one way between the school’s main entrance and Greenwood St. for the evening. Parking can be a challenge so consider walking, carpooling, or parking by Oak Hill or Brown. Please leave enough time to pick up your directory and navigate your way through South to your first “class” at 7PM. We hope you have time after picking up your directory to socialize with friends  but we ask that you move into the cafeteria to catch up because it gets very crowded in the main hallway and slows down the directory distribution process. Also, please be respectful of the school’s neighbors and their driveways. Wear comfortable shoes—there is lots of (brisk) walking.

Student Directory pick up will start at 6:15PM by the main entrance, continuing throughout the evening. See the following post.

The Spirit Gear Table will be open at 6:15PM on Back-to-School Night.
Parent nights are always very busy at the Spirit Gear table, so we will be open early this Wednesday for anyone who wants to get their shopping done before it gets crowded. We have re-stocked our inventory and have some new colors and sizes available.

Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday at Back-to-School Night!
