The Tiger Times
A Note from your Principal
Dear West Newton families,
September has proven to be another busy month with student academics and activities at the forefront! Our first Tiger Time convocation was certainly enjoyable as we celebrated our Students of the Month, Tiger Stripe winners, perfect attendance, West Newton Spirit awards, and our community partnership with West Newton United Methodist Church. It’s always wonderful to share our celebration of our students’ successes with our West Newton families and community partners!
Our 6th graders had a special day with over 30 volunteers from Rolls Royce who partnered with their teachers – Mrs. Fortune, Miss Langley, Miss Linton, Mrs. Washer, and Ms. Wilson – along with our CIS Site Coordinator Mrs. Lecher to support students in planning for their future careers. Our Rolls Royce volunteers/community partners noted how impressed they were with our students for their perseverance in setting and achieving goals as well as with the respect shown toward our community partners.
We have some wonderful family events coming up that I want to ensure everyone is aware of and has placed in calendar notifications:
- Sept. 26 Book Fair Grand Opening 5:30-7:00pm
- Lunch with Someone You Love + Book Fair
Sept. 26 = Grade 4 at 12:30pm
Sept. 27 = Grade 3 at 11:00am
Sept. 28 = Grade 1 at 10:30am
Sept. 28 = Grade 2 at 11:30am
Oct. 1 = Grade 6 at 1:00pm
Oct. 2 = Grade 5 at 12:00pm
- Oct. 3 is Conference Day – be sure to look for your confirmed time from your child’s teacher. The Book Fair will also be open all day!
Thank you for sharing your child with us at West Newton! We are Decatur Proud and know that our work matters and it is possible!

ART TO REMEMBER: Students have started working on their Art to Remember artwork this week. Once the artwork has been completed, order forms with merchandise personalized by their artwork will be available to purchase. Be sure to check out the new jewelry items and my personal favorite, the Christmas ornament. All proceeds from the Art to Remember fundraiser go to support the art room.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: 6th grade parents are needed to help with making 6th grade medallions. If you are interested in helping, please contact me at email@example.com.
Practice equals mastery ~ students will gain confidence and show success in the classroom. If you need help with ideas and/or strategies, contact your child's teacher.
