  • The Valentine's dance was a huge success. We had so many students from every grade. Thank you Mr. Perez, Ms. Lawson, Mrs. Lupa and Mr. Aguirre, Mrs. Herchenrader, Mr. and Mrs. Lacy for coming out to dance and support our students.
  • Read Around the World Day was a wonderful experience. Thank you Mrs. Stout and Ms. Phaling for the wonderful opportunity.
  • Students brought so many sweets and snacks for Valentine's Day parties. They had a great time passing out cards and treats.
  • First grade had a well needed visit from Crest and a dentist. Each child went home with a packet of goodies for healthy teeth.
  • Thank you Bilingual Meet teams. These coaches here to sponsor out kids Saturday at Newman Smith were Ms. Valeria Rodriguez who was also the main coordinator of events for our school, Ms. Gonzalez, Mr. Harris, Mr. Perez, Mrs. C.
