Reminder: NO SCHOOL on MONDAY, APRIL 21st. This is a comp day for teachers for conferences in March.
It has come to our attention that many of our students are using their parents’ login on the parent portal to look for assignments, grades, etc. Please, do not let your students use your sign on! All students have their own usernames and passwords and should be using them for Campus access.
If students are not using their accounts, they will be unable to register for next year’s classes here at Newton and when they head to high school, they will not be able to register online for high school classes. If your child has forgotten their Infinite Campus password, have them see Mrs. Mills in the Main Office. Thank you for your cooperation regarding this matter.
I am attaching two pieces of information for you from the district. The first is a notification of price increases for lunches and the second is information regarding a Cyber-Safety workshop that will be held at the Ames Facility on April 28th. You will need to register for the workshop.
The end of year field trip permission forms have been given to students and need to be returned by April 25th. These need to be returned whether or not your student is attending the field trip on the last day of school.
As we look forward to the eighth grade continuation please keep the following dress code guidelines in mind: For Boys: Please wear business casual attire, dress pants, dress shirts and dress shoes, no t-shirts, jeans or pants that sag. For Girls: Please wear business casual attire including, dresses, skirts, dress pants and shoes that you can walk gracefully in. No spaghetti strap or halter tops, if these are worn a shawl or some type of cover up needs to be worn over the top of them.
Please remember we are coming together as a community to recognize the accomplishments of the students and need to follow the Newton dress code. Students will be walking across the stage, up and down stairs, receiving their continuation certificate and being recognized in front of hundreds of people. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Have a great weekend.
Principal, Newton Middle School
