Message from the Principal

This year has flown by...and here we are in May, just 5 weeks from the end of our school year!...and what a busy 5 weeks it will be!

We thank our lucky STARS for each of our Newhall Elementary School teachers, thank you for making last week memorable for them! A special shout-out to our Newhall Elementary PTA for planning the week-long celebration.

Happy Mother's Day

Dear Newhall Elementary moms, you are a teacher, confidant, friend, problem-solver, Band-Aid-applier, lunch-maker, tear-wiper…As a mother, you play so many different roles for your kids. Somehow, you excel in all of them! You are exactly what being an extraordinary mom is all about. Watching you with your kids is an inspiration for me. I hope your day was full of love and appreciation. Happy Mother’s Day!

California Pivotal Practice Award

Newhall Elementary School was selected as 2022 California Pivotal Practice Award winner! The California Pivotal Practice (CAPP) Program is being utilized by California in 2022 in place of the California Distinguished Schools Program. The program highlights innovative practices implemented during the 2020/21 school year when California required schools to offer distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am so proud of our community, students, teachers and staff! Congratulations Newhall Eagles!
