Dear Newton Community,
It always seems that each school year progresses rapidly. This school year seems to have flown by even more so!
I would like to inform you of several events that are happening soon. Friday night, September 20th, we will host our 72nd annual homecoming celebration and our 5th year since hosting it during the Fall Sports Season. Our boys' soccer team will play Legacy Christian at 7:15 p.m. with the Homecoming activities before the game starting at 6:00. There will be a parade beginning at the school entrance on Long Street and making its way South to Monument Street (State Route 718) and then East on Main Street to Brethren Drive.
The 89th Annual Newton Fall Fair is scheduled for Friday, October 4th. Our annual pork dinner will be served beginning at 5:00 p.m. The Newton Marching Band will perform at 6:00 at the Soccer Field. There will be many games for the kids, produce exhibits and judging, high school class competition events, and a kiddie tractor pull.
This Newton Fall Fair is tradition! It signals that harvest is near, cooler weather is here, and the year is underway. The end of the first term is October 17th.
In addition, our Field House/Community Center will be open for the public to walk through and visit during the Fall Fair. The completion date for this construction project is mid-December. We have tentatively set the building dedication for this new facility to be Sunday, January 5th at 2:00 p.m.
The Marching Band has done well at their first contest in Troy last Saturday. The Fall Sports teams are in full swing. League and Sectional tournaments will begin in a couple of weeks.
I am proud of our school, students, parents, and community. In turn I hope every student, parent and community member is proud of Newton! Go Indians!
Only at Newton!
