Below is a link to the graduation survey and registration form that is required for ALL seniors to fill out, whether they plan to attend the graduation ceremonies on June 10th or not: Graduation Survey and Registration. Please carefully read the directions in the form and make note of the following:

  • Only senior students may fill out the form using their NPS accounts
  • The deadline to fill out the form is the end of the day on Friday, May 28th (so that we have plenty of time in advance to plan for seating arrangements, etc.)
  • The form IS editable right up until graduation day if you need to change anything or add a guest


Senior Webinar Tues, May 18 at 3PM with the Deans
The deans will be hosting an important webinar with slideshow on Tuesday, 5/18 at 3pm for all seniors where they will discuss end of the year events, including graduation, senior checkout, etc.   Here is the link for the webinar (also posted on the Schoology calendar):
Passcode: 2021 

If anyone is unable to attend, the webinar will be recorded and shared out with Seniors and parents/families.

For specific yearbook questions, please contact English Department head, Brian Baron:


  • How should students pick up the yearbook they ordered? 

In-person seniors: Go to the faculty dining room (same room they use to drop off Covid pool tests) during any lunch period Monday, May 17, through Friday, May 21. Use the entrance from the hallway. 

Remote students (or in-person students who can’t make it on Monday): Drive up to the Wheeler entrance between 6 and 7:30 pm on Monday, May 17, or between 12 and 1:30 pm on Saturday, May 22 and Mr. Baron will have your yearbook there. 

  • I didn’t order a book but I want one… 

Just bring $100 cash or a check made out to Newton South High School to any yearbook pickup time. 

  • What about the spring supplement? 

The yearbook staff is hard at work on additional coverage of spring events. Everyone who ordered a book will get a copy of this supplement later in the summer — graduating seniors will have the supplement mailed to their houses, and everyone else will get it in school in the first days of school. 

All NPS Chromebooks AND chargers that have been checked out to Seniors need to be returned. If any Senior has their own device and is NOT using their NPS-issued Chromebook, please return it to the main office window (in the front lobby) anytime starting Monday, May 17th and continuing each school day from 8:00am to 3:00pm right up until May 27th. 

For students that still need to use their NPS Chromebook until the last day on May 28th, there will be a specific collection schedule for 5/28 that will be shared out at a later date.

Finally, if you have misplaced or damaged your Chromebook charger, here is a link to instructions on ordering a new one. A reminder that we do need NPS issued Chromebooks and chargers returned in good condition. Thanks for your cooperation.
