Josh Foster Day
Honor Society Induction
The NES Honor Society was invited to visit the residents at Shady Acres to spread some Christmas cheer. We visited with residents while making Christmas ornament crafts. Members also delivered Christmas cards made by our Kindness Club and 3rd grade classes. We had a great time!
Newton Elementary students have started the school year with reading! We have a competition every six weeks to see who can get the most Accelerated Reader points.
The first six weeks winners are:
Aspen Burr (Kindergarten)
Korvin Bennett & Owen Adams (1st Grade)
Lawson Spivey (2nd Grade)
Cooper Belcher (3rd Grade)
Taraji Hartsfield (4th Grade)
Jakoby Mulkey is our Battlereader this six weeks!
He read 45,521 words during the first six weeks of school.
We are so proud of our readers!
Please encourage your child to read every night for at least 15-20 minutes.
On December 12, 2022 Leo the Lion from the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council came by to visit with some of our students to celebrate winning the Red Ribbon Week Door Decorating Contest. Here are some photos of his time with us.
We need your help in making sure all of our students get home safely. If your child will be taking a different transportation home, you must send a note on a full sheet of paper. We will not accept transportation changes over the phone. This is for the best interest of our students. Last minute changes are confusing and could result in the child not getting to the desired destination. If you have an emergency and must make a change, the office staff will transfer you to the principal or assistant principal. On the note that you send requesting a transportation change, you must have the required information:
* Student’s first and last name
* Grade Level
* Parent’s first and last name
* Include the physical address and person’s full name of where the child is going
* A phone number where you can be reached if there is a problem
We will continue to work for all of the students at Newton Elementary. Thank you for all that you do for Newton Elementary.
