PTSO Distributes 1,000 Cups of Hot Chocolate to Students!

Hot chocolateMany thanks to NSHS parents Didi von Deck and Melanie Henriques, and seniors Nicole Brooks, Galya Dorit, and Jan Watson for organizing a special student-appreciation event for the end of Term II! Approximately 1,000 cups of hot chocolate were served to Newton South students on the brisk morning of January 13 to help brighten up the last week of second term. Whitson’s Food Service graciously provided urns of hot water, while the PTSO provided chocolate and marshmallows. The idea originated from a discussion with student representatives in the South Senate and PTSO last spring, and was brought to fruition by the NSHS Emotional Wellbeing Committee, with help from Vice Principal Candace Beerman, the school custodians, and Solange Morrissette and Maria Mastroianni at Whitson’s. If you would like to join this committee and help with other future random acts of kindness for NSHS students, please contact Betsy Blagdon or Emily Prenner at
