Kindergarten Pollinators

October 9, 2020

The Kindergarteners have been learning about various types of pollinators and life cycles since the start of school. Today, they got to take on the adult stage role by dressing up as the pollinator of their choice and fly all around the school to share with their friends and teachers about what they are and why they are so important to our world! Our student pollinators were so excited to earn and spread their wings and pollen, they made everyone smile even bigger as they flew and flitted around!

Mini golf!

September 9, 2020

Our 7th and 8th grade students took their first field trip of the year to the Dulles Golf and Sportsplex for an afternoon of mini golf! All socially distanced while in teams of 4, putting our way around the outdoor course. We followed-up with some popsicles to celebrate the end of the first week of in-person school on a hot and humid day. We made it through four days!

Frying Pan Park

September 9, 2020

Our Kindergartners, first graders and second graders traveled to Frying Pan Park for an afternoon of beautiful farm animals – including the pigs wallowing in 8 inches of mud! We saw goats, horse, cows, sheep, turkeys and peacocks – all while spending some enjoyable, socially distanced, time outside. Check out the cute pictures of our fabulous students!

Welcome to the First Day Back!

September 2, 2020

We had a fantastic first day back at school today! The students enjoyed seeing their friends, the teachers loved seeing the students, and all went smoothly – although it was a tiny bit chaotic at times! We were able to spend quite a bit of time outside today – on our yoga mats reading, playing games and exercising behind the school, having lunch under the canopies, and just taking a mask break from class. The students were very flexible and just went with the flow of the “new normal”. Check out the pictures of our students learning on the first day here!!

See you on Monday!

August 27, 2020

Our teachers have arrived back at school and are excitedly preparing for your child’s arrival on Monday! We have new space, new vans, new chromebooks, beautiful flowers – and lots of new safety measures! Check out our socially distanced classrooms and lunchroom, our “dots” that help students with lining up 6 feet apart, our signs for separate entrances, and our abundance of soap, sanitizer and Lysol! We have two Newton School masks and “mask lanyards” for everyone upon arrival as well. Can’t wait to see everyone in this new normal!!

Summer Program Begins

July 7, 2020

The Newton School Summer Program opened today to cheers from parents and teachers – and our students! With social distancing, masks and all the health guidelines in place, the students were able to read, write and do math along with plenty of movement time (some outside), art and games. It was wonderful to see everyone and we can’t wait for the activities in the coming weeks! We will be here until July 31st and then break until August 31st when our in-person, 5 days a week school starts

Kindergarten Graduation

June 5, 2020

Our youngest students celebrated their next step to first grade on Thursday, June 4th. Each received a diploma recognizing their accomplishments while Mrs. Bender and Mrs. Abraham highlighted their wonderful student characteristics and favorite memories from kindergarten. We ended with delicious cupcakes! We are so proud of our students – and welcome to first grade!

8th Grade Graduation 2020

June 5, 2020

The Newton School held its first virtual 8th grade graduation on Friday, June 5th, to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of our oldest group of students. We heard about their favorite memories, congratulated each student with their diploma, and watched a video of each of them growing up. We even had a surprise guest – our former teacher Ms. Knight, who moved to Tennessee last year after teaching almost all of these students for many years!  The students will be attending wonderful high schools next fall including Bishop O’Connell, Paul VI, Franklin Academy, The McLean School, The New School, Loudoun School for Advanced Studies, Virginia Academy and Stone Bridge High School. We are so proud of our students, particularly after rising to the occasion of Distance Learning since mid-March.  Way to go and congrats to all!

Crazy Hat Day

May 22, 2020

What better way to celebrate the beginning of a holiday weekend than…CRAZY HAT DAY! Our students rocked everything from sharks to Mickey & Minnie Mouse to helmets from their favorite team to a really big eyeball. They were super creative with beach hats, minions, sea and land animals and many more!

Happy Mother’s Day!

May 10, 2020

Happy Mother’s Day from all of us at The Newton School!

This week, our students worked hard on their online art project to celebrate their mothers! Once complete, the beautiful works were printed, framed and wrapped at The Newton School by a large group of helpers. Once the packages were ready to go, many elves delivered over 90 gifts to student’s homes – from Purcellville to Potomac, MD – to ensure the gifts were delivered to the doorsteps of the special people who make it all happen – the moms!

Celebrate a day of “normalcy” in the new era we live in. Take care!
