Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians:
We had a wonderful Halloween Dance on the 31st. The best description I can give you is as we were dismissing students a sixth grade girl ask me the question, “Mr. O’Tremba, are the Halloween Dances always this epic?” My response was yes they are and she stated that she can’t wait until next year. I want to thank our PTO and our student government for sponsoring and arranging the dance. I also want to thank Mr. Chad Conant for donating his time and equipment as our DJ for the dance.
The district has purchased enough license agreements through TCI, History Alive in order for us to present and online curriculum to our students. In order to implement the program we need to have the technology for the students. We have ordered 35 Chrome Books that should arrive in the next couple of weeks for our students. This will be a great asset for us here at Newton.
On Friday, November 22nd we will be providing an i-pod day for students to listen to music. There are parameters and guidelines for the day. Students were shown a power point in homeroom today describing the guidelines. In order to participate students will need to bring a $1.00 and pay at lunch on the 20th or 21st or bring a non-perishable, non-expired canned item. The money brought in will be used to replenish the CODE cart that we use as rewards for students through our PBIS program. The canned items brought in will be donated to the Salvation Army.
I am including an attachment to the newsletter from the district nutrition services regarding the free and reduced lunch program. If you have any questions regarding the program or the process to be involved in the program please contact Paula Buser at 303-347-3356.
I also want to thank everyone that supported our bond in the election this past Tuesday. This will be significant to Newton as we will receive about 2.8 million dollars in repairs to our building. Thanks to our community for always coming through for us, it is appreciated!
Have a great weekend!
