Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians:
I have exciting news, Lisa Jenkins, who is our instructional coach and seventh grade language arts teacher was recently recognized by Newsela for her outstanding lesson planning for her classroom instruction. Examples of her lessons are posted on their website. Please click on the following link to read about Lisa and her lesson planning!
I want to thank all of the students who participated in our talent show. They did a great job and were very entertaining. Also a special thanks to Ms. Andrews and Mrs. Osthoff who sponsored and coordinated the event and to Mr. Wilmes and Ms. Thomas who kept us entertained throughout the show with their Monte Python humor as Emcee’s!
We are moving forward with several of our projects at Newton. We are in the bidding process for our electronic marquee and have two corporate sponsors. The marquee should be installed and ready for use by August. We are in the selection process for our new playground equipment that will be installed over the summer and our seats for the mini-theater should arrive in late April and be installed by the end of the school year.
It is amazing to me that we are heading into spring break. I want to wish all of our students a safe and enjoyable spring break.
Have a great weekend.
Principal, Newton Middle School
