Welcome to Newton's PTO

On behalf of the Newton Middle School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), we would like to give a warm Newton Knight welcome to the Newton community.  We invite Newton parents be actively involved in the school through the Newton PTO. The PTO meets monthly (minutes of the meetings are posted on this site) and you are invited to attend. Numerous volunteer opportunities will be posted throughout the year. The objectives of the Newton Middle School PTO are:
  • To inform and involve parents, thus promoting a better understanding of the educational programs of Newton Middle School and Littleton Public Schools
  • To promote the welfare of the students in the home, school and community
  • To act as a service group in support of Newton Middle School
  • To represent parent interest by acting in an advisory capacity
  • To build a sense of community by providing the following programs:
  •  Staff Appreciation, Fall Party, Run with the Nights, Community Nights and more
One important function of the Newton PTO is to raise money to support enhancement projects for our school, and enrichment programs for our students and teachers. Without this additional     funding, these initiative would not be possible. Our goal this year is 100% participation.  EVERY GIFT COUNTS. All funds committed through this campaign will support:
  • Interior building enhancements, including upgrading equipment for performances and PE  classes in the gymnasium with a much needed sound system, projector, screen an lighting.
  • “Reading Counts”, the Fall Dance and teacher appreciation.
  • Enrichment of the classroom experience, with the purchase of supplies and technology to increase academic goals.
  • Strategic Teacher Grants that expand on the curriculum and special projects.
We are actively seeking volunteers for the following positions for the 2017-2018 school year:
  • Vice President
  • Fundraising
  • Staff Appreciation
  • Fall Party
