Help New Schools Foundation Meet its Goal!
NSF needs your help for Newton to continue to be one of the best public school systems in the Commonwealth and the nation. NSF is two-thirds of the way to their Annual Appeal goal of $60,000. Please donate today to help them reach their goal.
Your gift will support innovative programs that are difficult to address in the school department’s operating budget. These include programs at Newton South:
NSF-supported initiatives also address elementary school writing and music; computer coding in the middle schools; social/emotional wellbeing; global education and more. The programs NSF funds span Newton’s diverse student population and impact all of Newton’s 12,000+ students.
When you give to Newton Schools Foundation you are ensuring that the Newton Public Schools continue to provide Newton students with the best education in this ever-changing teaching and learning environment.

Checks may be sent to: Newton South High School, ATTN Samantha Mandel, 140 Brandeis Road, Newton, MA 02459. Thanks very much, and best wishes to all for the holiday season!
For 50 years Newton Schools Foundation has supported the Newton Public Schools by providing private funding for innovative and challenging programs district-wide.
This year NSF is making a difference for Newton students through its Investing In Innovation fundraising campaign. Funds raised through the campaign are helping to ensure that NPS maintains and continues to provide pioneering programs for students and offers faculty and staff first-rate professional learning opportunities. Without these funds, NPS would be unable to expand many offerings district-wide or include students at all grade levels.
