• Newton South High School is proud to offer a variety of clubs and activities for students to join each year!

    For ease of students' acquiring as much information in one place as possible and for the maximum promotion of each club, all specific club information will live in the Google "2022-23 Clubs and Activities" document below. * As new clubs form and are approved, they will be added to the document. Please bookmark it for future reference.* 

    2022-23 Clubs and Activities

    *Deadline for starting a new club for the 2022-23 school year: November 1, 2022


    Note: Clubs listed on the Google directory page are inclusive of all Newton South High School affiliated clubs. If the activity in which your child is participating is NOT listed on the Clubs Directory page, that activity is in no way under the supervision, control or guidance of the Newton Public Schools, or any NPS employee, agent or representative.

    Clubs and Supervision:

    There are normally two types of clubs which are distinguished by supervisory aspects (see below). During remote learning during the 2020-21 school year, ALL clubs were deemed "partially supervised". With in-person learning for all students resuming in September, some clubs may again meet the criteria for "fully supervised" clubs. Once this information is established and confirmed, the supervisory status of each club will be indicated on the above clubs Google document AND there will be corresponding Family ID sign up links (one for "fully supervised clubs" and one for "partially supervised clubs") on the same document. ALL students who join clubs need to sign up on Family ID each school year (exceptions: Speech & Debate and Gender & Sexuality Awareness).
