Welcome to the Mason-Rice PTO!

The Mason-Rice Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a non-profit, all-volunteer group committed to enriching our children’s educational experiences at Mason-Rice and building a vibrant community within our school. We help parents and caregivers stay connected, understand our community’s needs, and foster community spirit; all of which is intended to maximize the experience of our students.

The Mason-Rice PTO Annual Fund Needs Your Support

The PTO supports supplies and programs that are not covered by Newton Public Schools’ budget.

  • Community Connections: Back-to-School Picnic, New Parent Buddy Program, Parent Socials, Families Organizing for Racial Justice (FORJ), Safe Routes to School program (SRTS), and more!
  • Important School Initiatives: The PTO supports our teachers in various ways. We provide direct teacher support for classroom supplies and enhancements, curriculum support, and teacher appreciation events. Additionally, the PTO also funds Creative Arts & Science, curriculum enrichment programs for each grade that would not otherwise be provided by the district.Funding for Creative Arts & Science: curriculum enrichment programs that would not otherwise be provided by the district for students
  • Ensuring a Safe and Strong School year: The PTO was proud to supply outdoor cushions for each student to help facilitate teachers taking their lessons outside. In addition, the PTO helped create “Mason-Rice Outdoors.” These are some of the many ways that our PTO has partnered with the staff and teachers already to make the school experience healthy, clean, and conducive to learning for all Mason-Rice students!
