  • The doors at the car rider line close at 9am. If you arrive to the car rider line and do not see a staff member standing outside, do not let your child out of the car. No one will be there to let them in. If you arrive after 9am, please bring your child to the front of the building.

  • We have had a number of students lose or believe that someone has taken their toys and/or pokemon cards. If this is an issue for your child, I would strongly suggest that those items are left at home. We will do our best to help students recover their items, but we are not always successful at doing so.

  • Please be mindful of what your students wear to school on days when they have art and gym. We have a number of students refusing to participate in gym because they don't want to mess up their sneakers. We also have younger friends messing up their clothes during art. Feel free to send in old, oversize t shirts that can used as smocks. :-)

Volunteers Needed!

Our teachers are working hard to plan engaging lessons for our scholars, but need support with preparing materials.

If you are willing to help with laminating, copying, and/or cutting, please let us know!!

You can come in and spend some time helping out in the office OR we can send things home and you can simply return them to school when you are finished!

Any assistance you can provide is appreciated!! :-)

Ordering Snacks for School Celebrations

This is a reminder that outside food and snacks are not permitted to be brought in to school for student celebrations (i.e. birthday celebrations). However, our Nutrition Services department does offer an opportunity for families to purchase snacks through the cafeteria that would be provided to your child's class during their lunch period.

The price list and order form can be found below. We also have paper copies in the front office. Feel free to reach out if you have additional questions.

Students are beginning to check-out books in our school library! You will know if the book is from our library if there is a “New Castle Elementary” barcode on the back cover. They are allowed to borrow the book for one week, then return the book back to the library the day they have Library/Technology Exploratory. (For a reminder, you may check out the schedule below) Encourage students to read library books at home. Happy Reading!

Student Absence Form

If your child has been or is going to be absent for an upcoming appointment or any other reason, you can submit that information by clicking the button above.

Breakfast and Lunch are provided FREE OF CHARGE for all students!

All students will have access to a free breakfast and lunch every day!

Be mindful that even if your child brings breakfast and/or lunch with them, we CANNOT DENY students access to the meals that we have in school, so if you do not want them to eat a school breakfast/lunch or have concerns about the possibility of them eating a double lunch (the one that bring from home and what we offer in school) and ending up with a tummy ache, please have that conversation with your scholar. :-)
