I just want to give you a brief reminder regarding our parent/teacher conferences. We will again be conducting arena style conferences and holding conferences on two separate evenings this year. We will split the evenings according to alphabet. On October 16th student’s parents with the last names beginning L-Z will attend conferences and on October 17th student’s parents with the last names A-K will attend. The time frame for both evenings will be from 4:00 to 7:30 pm.
Our 6th grade teachers will be located in the cafeteria, our 7th grade teachers will be located in the library and our 8th grade teachers along with our Multi-Level teachers will be located in the gym.
We have instructed our teachers that the purpose of conferences is to give you, the parent a brief update and report regarding your students first quarter progress. We would like the time to be limited to five minutes per teacher. Feel free to visit any or all teachers you would like, do not feel you have to visit all teachers. If you need more than the allotted amount of time please contact any teacher and set up an appointment for a more detailed conference.
To prepare for the conference please log into the parent portal to access your child’s most recent progress grade.It is important to remember that the official report card is given at semester time and the grades you are currently receiving are the nine week progress grades.
This year we will again be sponsoring our annual Halloween Dance. I will send more specifics around costumes and the format of the dance as we get closer to the day of the dance. For now the Newton PTO and our PBIS Committee will be sponsoring the dance for all students. At this time we need volunteers to help chaperone or sponsor or supervise an activity. If you are willing to help please contact us here at Newton and we will get your name to our PTO.
I want to remind everyone that tonight Arapahoe High School will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary and will be hosting an open house from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. everyone is welcome.
Have a great weekend!
Principal, Newton M.S.
