Student Activities

October Character Trait: Be Respectful

Fall Fun Obstacle Run

Rescheduled due to weather, it is happening this Tuesday.  There is still time to raise funds and support grade-level goals.  Monies will also go to support PTC's efforts for our students.  Thank for your donations and a big thank you to PTC!

 On Tuesday, October 31st, we will hold our annual Halloween Parade at 8:20 a.m. ending on the blacktop below (weather permitting). This is a great viewing location for parents. You are welcome to observe from the patio in front of the gym or from the side of the blacktop near the parking lot.

Student safety is at the forefront of what we do. Here are a few guidelines regarding costumes at school:

* Family friendly costumes are great! Please save gory/violence related costumes for home.

* No weapons please

Thank you.​​​​​​​



Please check our LOST & FOUND for your missing items.  This is located in the courtyard next to the office.  Items not claimed will be donated after November 21st.

Yearbook News!

Want to remember your student's time here at Newcastle, pre-order your yearbook and save those memories forever.  

After School Pick-Up

  1. Please observe speed limits and stop signs in the neighborhoods.  
  2. Please avoid using side streeets Peach and Howell.
  3. Do not come before 2:30.  Staging causes traffic jams for the neighbors.
