Dear Newton Community,
The 2019-2020 School Year is ready to begin! As many of you know, Father Time stops for no one. As I get older and watch my own children mature into young adults attending college, I continually ask myself, "Where has the time gone?" It seems like yesterday we were coming home from the hospital, the next day we were starting kindergarten, the next day after that we were having high school graduation parties, and now we send them off to college at this time of year. This emphasizes the preciousness of time! We realize the importance of a quality educational experience for each and every student because the years they spend in school are the most memorable. Those of us that work in public education have a great resoponsibility and duty, but it's also a tremendous blessing.
I have been impressed by the positive attitude of the students, staff, and parents leading up to this new school year. This year will be special for many of the same reasons as in past years. There will be special times in the classroom, on the marching band field, on the athletic fields, and with the many school events going on each day and week! In addition, we will open a newly constructed field house in December or January of this school year! I look forward to seeing familar faces and new ones this coming school year! Let's have a great year!
Only at Newton!
