This year's Multicultural Festival will be held on Friday, March 28, from 6pm–9pm. The Festival is one of the highlights of the year as we celebrate the wonderfully rich cultural diversity at Countryside. This year's theme is: "My Country's Tourist Attractions".
Come wave your flag! 9 of 23 booths have already been reserved. USA booth needs new volunteers this year. Registration is done through email only. If you wish to set up a booth to represent your country, please email the festival organizers.
To make the festival happen, we need you! To volunteer an hour of your time during the festival, please use our VolunteerSpot page.
For more information, please see the Multicultural Festival 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.
Open PTO Positions
It's the start of a new school year and we're looking for volunteers. Last year was a great one, due to the efforts of our many parent volunteers, and this year we hope to have an even better one. But to do that, we need your help! We still have some PTO committee chair vacancies in need of enthusiastic parents! Check out the committees page for some ideas of where and how to volunteer.
If you have questions about any of the positions, please contact one of the current committee chairs. If you would like to volunteer for one of the open positions, please contact PTO Co-Presidents Gena Hooper or Anne Kalis.
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.
