It is the intention of the Newton Public Schools that no student is denied participation in school-sponsored activities and bus transportation due to inability to pay. Waivers are based on income and family size as well as special circumstances or temporary hardships.
Newton Public Schools All City Music Ensembles provide students who have a deep commitment to singing or playing their musical instrument with an opportunity to join like-minded students from across the district in an extra-curricular performance ensemble. Students are selected by audition in the late spring or fall and rehearsals are held after-school at least one afternoon per week.
ELIGIBILITY: Participation in an All City Music Ensemble is restricted to students currently enrolled in Newton Public Schools and Newton students who reside in Newton and are Home Schooled.
Starting in the 2011, participation in the All City Music Ensembles has become a fee-based program. Students who are selected for their group will be provided a registration form and payment slip. The annual participation fee is $150* and financial assistance waivers are available to qualifying families who apply. Registrations and fee payment may also be completed online in the fall. The links below will be activated after the audition period for each individual ensemble.
* Students in the fourth and fifth grade who have registered and paid a fee to participate in their school band or orchestra are exempt from paying the participation fee for All City Band, Orchestra, and Treble Singers.
