2016 Multicultural Festival
Get ready for one of Countryside's most treasured traditions — our annual Multicultural Festival! Each year, Countryside families join together for an evening of cultural celebration that includes displays of family heritage, activities, food, and performances. Like last year, the festival will be held at Brown Middle School on March 11, from 6pm–9pm.
This year's theme is "Famous Landmarks of Your Country," a great opportunity to learn about special and important places around the world! All families are invited to be a part of the evening by hosting a table, marching in the parade or performing in the show. Download a registration form and email John Caulfield to represent a country or join a country's group. More information.
Countryside Businesses - Donate to the Raffle!
Do you own a business or provide a service that you'd like to like to promote? Countryside will soon hold its annual Rockin' Raffle, a fun and exciting fundraiser that supports the school. Donate an item or service and your business will be listed in the raffle book which goes out to the entire Countryside community. It's a great way to promote your business and support your child's school. Please contact the Raffle Team (Emma Ardiff and Melissa Waltuck) today!
Library Volunteers Needed
Help out in the Countryside library! Volunteers assist with shelving, monitoring checkouts, and more so that Mrs. Stroessner, our library teacher, can focus on instructing students.
Sign up now at our VolunteerSpot page.
Creative Arts & Sciences
The Creative Arts and Sciences program brings high-quality, curriculum-related enrichment programs to our children's classrooms. Although it is mandated by the Newton Public Schools, volunteers from the PTO are completely responsible for organizing and funding the program. More information.
The Fifth Grade experience is a special one at Countryside. For more information, and to learn how you can get involved, please see our Fifth Grade page.
