Welcome to Newton School’s Foundation’s (NSF) 3rd annual Newton Inspires, which will take place at Newton North (not at South where it was last year) on Tuesday, November 19th.  There are three sessions with a wide variety of speakers, all with ties to Newton.  NSF is a public charity dedicated to supporting Newton Public Schools.   

  • Please make sure to select THREE speakers (one from each session).  

  • While Newton Inspires is free to all NEWTON residents, generous donations are always appreciated.  They help defray our costs and support our mission.  You can make a donation by clicking here!

  • There is a fee of $10 for Non-Newton residents. Click here to pay.

We expect this year’s event to fill quickly so don’t delay in selecting your courses and telling your friends!  As always, parking is tight so leave plenty of time to park, pick up your name tag with room assignments and get to your seat in time for the first session.  Plan on arriving by 6:45pm to be safe! See you all on Tuesday, November 19th.
