Dear Parents and Students:
I trust that the summer break provided an opportunity for rest and making treasured memories with family. As this break is drawing to a close, I am very pleased to announce that we are extremely excited to begin the 2016-2017 school year at Newton High School! This year will be filled with opportunities for every student to achieve their personal goals and aspirations.
Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students with experiences that prepare them to be productive, responsible, and accountable citizens. We encourage students and parents to work in constructive partnership with us to seize every academic, athletic, and extracurricular opportunity. Together we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in education.
When our parents, students, and school are united in purpose we form the most formidable and effective team imaginable. Active participation and effective communication are key to the success of our students. We encourage our families and community to join us at school activities and events. Communication is vital to our team and plays an integral role in each student’s success. It is our desire that you remain consistently informed about your student’s studies, assignments, assessments, and additional opportunities for enrichment.
Please join us for our open house on July 26, 2016, 5:00pm to 7:00pm. During our open house, you will have the opportunity to meet your student’s teachers, visit with staff, and tour our facility. The first day of school is Friday, July 29, 2016!
Welcome back and GO RAMS!
