Newton Spirit Week
Greetings from Newton School,
Spring has finally arrived and with the change of weather we begin looking at all of the things that need to be done before the last day of school. Third and Fourth Grade PARCC Testing will take place this month. Please help your third and fourth grader have a positive PARCC experience with a good night’s sleep and encouraging words. We also have all of our students taking MAP Testing as part of our end of the year assessments. MAP is given three times a year so we can monitor student growth. The sunshine and warmth of spring encourages us to explore the world beyond the Newton walls. Our Kindergarten and Second Grade will be going to Northfield Mountain, First Grade will be visiting the Eric Carle Museum, Third Grade will be visiting the Deerfield Museum and Fourth Grade will be going to Look Park. Please check your child’s backpack for notices and field trip permission slips.
This month we celebrate teachers, nurses and mothers. Please join us and take a moment to thank these important people for the things they do to make your life special.
Remember to save those Box Tops! Each one represents ten cents towards a field trip for our children.
