This year we will be changing the format of our Holiday Show in an effort to provide one night for all Performing Arts groups.  Newcastle School will partner with Newcastle Community Association on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 6pm for a Family Christmas event in Newcastle Square.  All grade levels from Kindergarten through 7th Grade will perform as well as the Bands and Choirs.  More details to come, including a schedule for each grade level’s performance time.  We are excited to provide families an evening filled with family, friends and song!

Contact Mrs. Aday with any questions directly at  for more information.

After School Pick Up

  1. Do not arrive before 2:30.  Staging causes traffic jams for the neighbors.
  2. After Thanksgiving, the new ramp will be opening between the upper and lower campus.  Please consider using the lower parking campus parking lot to relieve traffic at the upper campus.  
  3. If you have a student participating in an after school activity or sport, please pick them up promptly at their release time. The school office closes at 3:30 and there is no supervision after that time.
  4. If siblings are waiting for practice to end, please have them join Homework Lab or Discovery.  Otherwise, we do not have supervision.
