Submit a Notes to the M-R Notes

The Mason-Rice Notes is the newsletter from the Mason-Rice PTO published every Fridays. It captures:
— Letters from the Principal and PTO
— Mason-Rice PTO and school-related events and initiatives
— Newton Public School initiatives
— Newton community happenings primarily sponsored by the City of Newton
— Classifieds from Mason-Rice families and alumni.  

If your announcement fits into one of the above categories, please follow these guidelines.

  • All submissions are due by WEDNESDAY of the published week at 5:00 pm.
  • Please put all content except for attachments directly into the Description field as it makes it easier to post to the website afterwards (and ensures that we don’t miss anything.)
  • Submissions should be one paragraph or less unless detailed information about a Mason-Rice specific initiative needs to be communicated.
  • Please note:  We do not publish the Notes when we have abbreviated weeks (the week of Thanksgiving or Good Friday for example.)

Per our parents’ requests, we do not publish advertising for businesses in our weekly Notes.  You may submit a note that is relevant to Newton PTOs, students or parents to the Newton PTO Council Community at newsletters@newtonptocouncil.org

Our Notes Editor has the right not to post an event or ad that is not applicable for our M-R community.  If you have questions about the Mason-Rice Notes, contact our editors at mrnotessubmissions@gmail.com.

*** Please note:  This form is only used for the Friday Mason-Rice Notes submissions.  If you are a committee chair and would like a blast sent for a significant all-school launch/event that needs immediate attention, please email the PTO Co-presidents at masonricepto@gmail.com and the Communications VP at oates.fam.five@gmail.com with the title “Proposed PTO Blast” and the content that you would like included.  We can not guarantee that a blast will be sent for all events per feedback from parents — but are certainly happy to discuss it. ***
