Under The Sea

January 17, 2018

The Newton School had the honor of hosting a variety of special aquatic guests this week for our “stay-at-school” field trip! Mr. Andrew WIlson came from the Glen Echo Aquarium in Maryland and included a horseshoe crab, a variety of beach dwelling shellfish, and an adorable shark! Students of all grades had an awesome hands-on experience as they were able to touch certain animals as they learned about the water creatures’ biological skills and traits. In addition to learning about the vast variety of aquatic life, students were also given important strategies for being responsible beach visitors! Overall it was a fantastic visit and we would like to thank the awesome Mr. Wilson and aquatic critters for such a fun learning experience!

Lunches for Embry-Rucker shelter

November 7, 2017

This week the whole Newton School worked diligently to prepare over 180 lunches (including over 400 sandwiches!) for families in need in conjunction with the Cornerstones Embry Rucker Community Shelter. Many thanks to our Newton School families who provided food supplies, donations, and helping hands to make this effort possible! In addition to our students learning about the importance of helping the less fortunate, students put their math and logistic skills to the task in order to accomplish our triple digit goal! Students crafted masterful ham/turkey and cheese sandwiches along with side dishes and water refreshments! Overall the project was a huge success and we are very proud of our students and families who went above and beyond to help those in need!
