Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians:

The deadline, January 31st, is fast approaching for families of 8th graders to take part in the grand Newton tradition of placing a Baby Ad in this year's yearbook. To place your ad, simply go to the secure website and enter the school's code: 7571 and then log onto the Online Ad Creation site. If you have any questions, please contact Dan Cohen at

Thinking ahead I am going to provide you with information regarding our 2nd annual talent show. We will conduct talent show auditions for any students interested on February 24th and 25th from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. Students will need to sign up for slots. For students selected rehearsal will be March 17th from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. The parent show will be the evening of March 20th at 7:00 pm. All parents/community members are welcome. We will have additional information available on our website and in the announcements as we get closer to the audition dates.

We will be showing the movie Wreck It Ralph tomorrow during homeroom/after school as our second quarter reward for all students who have received six code cards. We will also have popcorn and licorice for the students. We will have a late bus on Friday for any students who may not have a ride. Make sure your student turns in their code cards.

We will also have a support your playoff team day tomorrow, students may wear a hat for any one of the four remaining NFL playoff teams….Denver, Seattle, San Francisco or New England.

Yesterday afternoon we had an all school assembly. The assembly was presented by the American Bar Association Division of Young Lawyers. The topic was Bully Proofing your school. It was a very well done presentation and the students were very engaged. You may want to ask your child their thoughts on the topic and discuss with them what they took away from the presentation.

We are also currently working on scheduling Mike Harris from the Jeffco Police Department to come in and present to our students regarding cyber safety. We will try to arrange this presentation for April/May time frame.

Have a great weekend.
