The Multi-Cultural Festival is always one of the most popular events at Countryside, and this year will be better than ever! The theme will be "Food Around the World". The event will feature booths representing various countries, a "Parade of Nations," and kid-powered entertainment. This year, to to give everyone a little more room, the festival will be held at Brown Middle School on Friday, March 28th from 6pm-9pm.
There are lots of ways to participate, including hosting a country booth, having a child in the show, or volunteering. To host a booth or sign up for the show, please download and fill out the registration form [PDF]. To volunteer, just go to our SignUpGenius page.
Library Volunteers Needed
Help out in the Countryside library! Volunteers assist with shelving, monitoring checkouts, and more so that Mrs. Layton, our library teacher, can focus on instructing students.

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.
