What a wonderful performance by our students in our recent dance production! A special thanks to Ms. Noles, Ms. Baker, and Mr. Greaser for all their hard work in making this performance so touching!

Christmas Around the World & Ornament Extravaganza

This year North Newton has been focusing on becoming a Global School. Each class has been studying a country and will be making special ornaments related to their country during our BARK clubs this Thursday. Another part of the Global initiative will be celebrating Christmas Around the World on Thursday, December 17th during the school day. Each classroom will learn about how Christmas is celebrated in their country and will be completing many different global activities. We would also like to invite parents to drop in to our 1st Annual Ornament Extravaganza from 3:30 to 5:30 on December 17th. At this time you can purchase your child’s ornament for $2.00, have your picture made with Santa, and enjoy some Christmas refreshments. We look forward to seeing you then!

North Newton's Music Room

We wish all our classroom spelling bee winners the best of luck representing your class!

VIF Module 2: Culture in the Classroom

During the month of December we will begin our second module for VIF. Culture in Your Classroom reveals that expectations in a school differ from those of international peers. Teachers will understand the role of culture in classroom relationships to leverage diversity of grade-level teams and students.
Explicit Instruction

After our discussions in PLCs on explicit instruction, check out some specific examples for your grade level on this website. There are some great resources here for you to use! Enjoy!
