Dear Parents and Students of Newton High School:
I trust the holiday break provided the opportunity for everyone to reflect on the past year, spend time with family and friends, and make plans for 2015. The faculty, staff, and administration of Newton High School are looking forward to providing exceptional educational experiences for our students in the New Year. As we enter into the second semester, the Ram Family continues to work together to ensure the success of our students and provide opportunities that foster life-long learning.
We have a number of important dates approaching.
* January 8th Student Report Cards are issued. The report cards are accompanied by a new report, the Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM). The GSGM provides parents and students with a Student Growth Percentile (SGP). In order to better understand how this percentile score affects your student’s educational experience, please refer to the link: Georgia Student Growth Model
* January 16th is an early release date for students.
* January 19th there is no school in observance of one of our nation’s heroes, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Here is to a successful, productive, and healthy 2015.
Happy New Year!
John C. Ellenberg, Ed.S.
