Distance Learning Week 6

April 30, 2020

We are in week 6 of the Distance Learning Program, and the students and teachers of The Newton School are doing a fantastic job! Students are reading new books, writing stories, sharpening their math abilities, learning about Current Events from around the world, enjoying their their social sessions with Mrs. Parks, and enjoying Movement each day. Many have been taking after school Spanish lessons, enhancing their Public Speaking skills, and learning to play the piano. It’s been an exciting – and unusual – time here at The Newton School! Way to go everyone! Check out the picture of our “new normal”!

Community Service Project

March 26, 2020

For Multicultural Day this year, our 8th Grade students helped to organize a service project benefiting children and families impacted by the hurricane in the Bahamas. Students collected, organized and packaged every day needs such as soap, shampoos, dental hygiene products, and washcloths to be delivered directly to families in need. We coordinated with North County Charter School in Florida on this effort and we received word that our donations were successfully delivered this week! Thank you to all of the parents and students that made this wonderful project happen!

The Newton Awards

Our students in grades 2-8 have spent the last few weeks in Social class making puppets and creating a puppet show in order to practice their collaboration skills and growth mindset . Their hard work culminated in a puppet show for the entire school last Thursday. In Academy Award fashion, “Newtons” were awarded to the puppet shows deemed best in class.

Air and Space Museum

March 9, 2020

On Friday, the students in grades K-3 took a short journey to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum in Chantilly to discover the many engineering and aeronautic advancements over the last two centuries. Students challenged their fear of heights to view Dulles Airport through the Observation Tower, and felt the rush of flight through the biplane cockpit experience. In addition to those hands on activities, students toured and learned through the many exhibits, and were especially excited by the Space Shuttle discovery, displayed in all its glory in the NASA section! Our journey concluded with a generous trip to the gift shop for an item of their choice to take home and students returned to base(The Newton School) ready for the weekend! To infinity and beyond!

Capitol Field Trip

March 9, 2020

Recently, our fifth and sixth grade students had the honor of touring the United States Capitol and learning all about the law making home of government!  Following an early lunch, the students and teachers traveled in style into our spacious charter bus and headed in DC to meet our wonderful tour guide.  Within the Capitol, students discovered the rich history and surprising fun facts throughout the massive structure, taking note of various pieces of artwork and impressive architecture. When the guided tour concluded, we took a wonderful walk around the grounds and continued to marvel at its beauty and the surrounding spectacle of the Districts cityscape! It was an awesome afternoon of learning, taking advantage of the proximity of the District of Columbia and all that it has to offer our students!

White House Field Trip

February 26, 2020

Our 7th and 8th graders had the awesome and rare opportunity to tour the White House this week! After passing through the many security check points, our students began their tour in the East Wing’s gorgeous ceremonial halls and rooms. We marveled at the many historical photographs of the United State’s Chief Diplomat creating policy for the last few hundred years and appreciated the many priceless portraits and paintings adorning the walls. Following our tour of the House, we went to the White House Visitor Center to watch a documentary on the History of the many first families, and followed up by checking out the many exhibits! Our students valued the trip and made many connections to their History and Civics classes along the way!

 

My Reptile Guy Visit

February 6, 2020

My Reptile Guy comes to The Newton School! Today was no ordinary day at school as students of every grade encountered some unique species, just steps from their classrooms. Mr. Bill brought everything from lizards to snakes to turtles. Students had the opportunity to learn about the different habitats and ask questions as they encountered each new reptile. We even witnessed a turtle race! Enjoy some pictures from the day!
