Every Friday, our 8th grade students participate in our mentoring program, providing guidance to our younger students in grades K-2. The group, led by one of our middle school teachers, Ms. Swarns, does a different activity every week – from reading books, to doing puzzles, to building with legos or blocks, to working with playdough. Each 8th grade student is paired with a younger counterpart and works to build an engaging relationship. This is such a great opportunity to have our older students show their maturity and support, and for our younger students to be further connected to our school community. Check out the Thanksgiving project they made together!
Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year at The Newton School! We are off to a great start – in another strange year – with our 115 students in grades K-8, including our largest class ever of 8th grade (22 students)! We spent the day reconnecting with our teachers and classmates while also spending lots of time outside learning and exercising. Check out the pics of the first day!
