Striving for Excellence, Together We Learn by Doing
May 23, 2013
Dear Newton School Community Members,
The 2012-2013 school year is nearly finished!! The students and staff of Newton Local Schools will complete the year on Thursday, May 30, 2013. School will dismiss at 12:20 p.m. This marks the third school year completed in our new facility!!
Each year at this time there is a mix of emotions. We are excited about the beginning of summer break and the fun activities that will surely happen. We are also a little melancholy with the passing of another year and the realization that another senior class joins the alumni ranks. We will miss the Class of 2013, but at the same time, we welcome a new Kindergarten class that will take their place.
We will know very shortly how well our students performed on the Ohio Achievement Tests. If they performed anything like our sophomores on the Ohio Graduation Tests, Newton will be the pride of Miami County.
The preliminary passage rates for our 10th Graders on the OGT were as follows:
Science 93%, Social Studies 96%, Math 98%, Reading 100%, Writing 98%
We look forward to an exciting 2013-2014 school year! We will be busy this summer making plans for the first student day on August 26th.
I hope you enjoy your summer!
