Welcome Back & THANKS!

Dear NES families,

We would like to welcome everyone to a new year at Newtown Elementary School! It feels good to be starting school again, even in this very unconventional time. We would never have imagined that the start of school would be happening from our homes or include face masks, and social distancing. However, we are adapting to the changes the pandemic has brought, and the PTO will do what we can to support the NES community throughout this school year.

Thank you, thank you!! The PTO would like to express our whole-hearted thanks to all the NES families who gifted their refund money back to the PTO following event cancelations after last year's shutdown. It is because of that generosity the PTO is solvent today! That generosity also enabled the PTO, once again, to provide several school programs that benefit NES students, including homework books, First In Math, Raz Kids, Time for Kids, Scholastic News and additional art supplies.

Again, we cannot thank you enough! It is proof that we are all part of an amazing school community and we are proud to be a part of that extended "family."



Class Dues

At this time, we are NOT COLLECTING any classroom dues.

It is unknown if we will be able to have any class parties at all this year, but we are hopeful that something may be possible at some point - fingers crossed!

6th Grade Dues:

Again, special 6th grade events are also unknown at this time. Socials? Parties? Class trip?

Later in the year we will collect dues per 6th grader to cover year-end recognition, t-shirts and any other events we're permitted to have.

Home Room Coordinators (HRCs)

HRCs may have a very limited role this year, but we will still select them in the coming weeks so they are ready to help when needed.

Please be on the lookout in a future email and a link to apply!
