PTO Volunteer Appreciation Reception

93 Hillside Road, Newton Highlands (Home of Liz Hiser)

As we approach the end of the school year, we would like to recognize the efforts of our amazing parent volunteers, and show our appreciation for your contributions in support of our school and the PTO. Sharing your time and talents helps make this wonderful school even more special for our students, faculty and staff.

All current and future volunteers are invited! 

If you have worked on a PTO committee, helped out in the library, handled e-communications from home, chaperoned a field trip, served as a committee chair or provided items for a faculty appreciation event or bake sale, please join us to celebrate all that we have accomplished this year with your support.

We look forward to seeing you! Please RSVP HERE.

This event is for adults only.
Appetizers, sweet bites and beverages will be served.
