Dear Newton School Community Members,

As we begin the month of August, preparation for the 2022-2023 school year is in full swing!  Soon our hallways will be filled with kids. Fall sporting events will be a daily occurrence.  It's an exciting time of the year for teachers, students, and parents!  It is important that our school community recognizes how quick the school year flies by!  It is my hope that everyone appreciates that fact and that each and every day is a blessing not to be taken for granted.   That appreciation will lead students, parents, and teachers to do their very best each day. 

Many things have changed in our country during the last couple of years. In my opinion, much of it is not good.  Changes in the world of education, especially within elementary and high schools, are sometimes unbelievably absurd.  However, I am extremely grateful for my role at Newton and the support this community gives to our school.  Common sense and strong ethical and moral values still prevail.  Our community has been built on a solid foundation with God, family, and country being the central focus!  Our values have been shaped by generations before us who knew right from wrong as instructed by a higher authority rather than secular humanism.  These values are what we live by and hope to strengthen.  

As always, I look forward to beginning this school year!   Best wishes to all of our students and their parents for a successful school year!    

Only at Newton!!!
Pat McBride
