Dear Newby Families,
Our offices will be closed the month of July
Step Up to 3rd Grade Summer Program
Step Up to 3rd Grade is a summer school program being offered for this year’s second graders. It is a great way to help your child strengthen their academic skills over the summer. If you have not already enrolled your child and would like to, please stop by the office and complete a registration form. Classes will start June 17th.
This is a free summer program, with an emphasis on using technology with reading, writing and math. It is designed for and open to incoming 3rd graders.
Class Placement for 2014-15
Assigning students to their classes at Newby Elementary is important. Our goal is to place students in an educational environment that will enhance their ability to be successful. Your child’s teacher has spent considerable time with them in the school setting and knows important information related to the social and educational needs of your child. For this reason, grade level teams are charged with recommending placement of children for next year’s classes. All recommendations are reviewed and approved by the principal.
Most of you have already shared information with your child’s teacher regarding the specific needs or learning characteristics of your child, however if you feel there is additional information that should be taken into consideration, please send a note to your child’s teacher before May 30th.
Has your address or phone number changed?
Please contact the office, 503-565-4900 or email@example.com, if your address or phone number has changed. We can’t mail your child’s report card to you or contact you if it is returned unless we have current information.
Supervision of students is a primary concern throughout the school, and mornings are no exception. Options for students before school each morning are:
There is no supervision prior to 7:30 a.m. in the morning at Newby Elementary. Please do not have students arrive at school prior to this time, as this creates a potentially dangerous situation. No adult supervision is available, and we do not want students left on their own in the cold and darkness outside the building. Your help in making this a safe and secure setting is much appreciated.
Dave Carlson, Principal
