From the Principal's Desk - May 18th, 2018



From the Principal's Desk 
I know there has been disappointment that the new playground equipment was off limits for students.  On the first day back from April break several students used it unsafely.  As a result, the staff and I had multiple safety concerns.  We wanted to have specific rules for using the structure before we allowed students on it.

The fifth grade students developed rules and created a video, which all the classes have viewed before they went out to recess last Thursday.   I am happy to say, the structure is now open for student use.  Please watch the video and discuss the rules with your child/ren:

We couldn't have picked a more beautiful day for our Evacuation Drill. The students were escorted by Officer Lazarakis as they walked, as a school, to Temple Emanuel and back.

If anyone hasn't been by the school lately, please come by and see what the Newton Serves parents have done with the front of our building. It looks amazing! They deserve a big shout out!
