Parents! Newton South Needs YOU!

Parents, if you’re passionate about making Newton South a great community for our students, consider taking on a role in the PTSO next year.

In these roles, you will partner closely with South’s new principal and the administrative team to ensure successful PTSO programs and events. These programs support our faculty, staff, and students to help enrich the high school experience.  After this difficult year, these programs will be more important than ever.  

The following PTSO leadership roles are currently available for 2021-2022:

  • Member for the Grants Committee (meet 3 times a year, minimal commitment – high impact)
  • co-chairs for Freshman Orientation (opportunity for incoming parents – help organize welcome sessions before school starts)
  • Newsletter Editors (work behind the scene only, be the first to know what’s happening)
  • Liaison for Newton SEPAC

Last, but not least, the PTSO needs 2 volunteers to be co-Presidents.   Work with current President this Spring and get to know the administration and committee chairs.

Next year seems far away, but planning has already begun and the transition of roles will start this spring.  Please email current PTSO President May Chiu at to further explore these available opportunities.
