A Note from Your Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my pleasure to welcome you back to another wonderful school year at West Newton Elementary School! The teachers and staff join me in saying we are happy to have you as part of our school community. We know this will be a successful and significant year of growth for your child. One of our biggest goals for the year is to help your child feel successful and for them to achieve academic excellence as we focus on curriculum, instruction, and assessments. By working together as parents and educators, we can build a foundation for lifelong learning. Our current student enrollment is 656 stupendous students! At West Newton Elementary we take pride in our relationships with parents and guardians; the staff of West Newton sees you as a partner in the important job of educating the children of this community. We welcome your participation and support during the school year; there are many opportunities to volunteer at West Newton so please check with your child’s teacher. Our PTO meets the 1st Tuesday of each month and everyone is welcome. We look forward to celebrating with you the achievements of our students.
Mrs. Susan Strube
