Save the Date! Final membership meeting of the school year will be on Tuesday, May 21st! We will be voting on our board for the 2024-2025 school year. The Nominating Committee's report is available HERE. If you would like to attend virtually, please email for the Zoom link.

There will be interactive booths, games, crafts, performances and a cultural fashion parade all featuring our very own school families. Follow the link to volunteer to help or to host a booth representing your family’s culture!


The Angel Program exists to support our families impacted by financial hardships. Our counselor Ms. Mutter works closely with our students and families to provide support for basic needs. Occasionally we get the opportunity to help these students in other ways that help contribute to their personal growth as a student here at Newcastle Elementary. We have identified several students that, without the support of our Angel Donors and community, family members would not be in a financial position to purchase a yearbook. If you would like to sponsor a yearbook for a student, please consider donating a yearbook HERE. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Don’t miss out on the 2023-2024 yearbook for your student! Order yearbooks by Friday, May 31st! Each copy is $26. GO TO OUR WEBSITE to purchase and click on the "Yearbook" icon in the left column list and follow the prompts to complete your purchase.
Get ready for an EPIC Spring Fling with a special guest appearance that will make this event even more unforgettable! Join us for a day of bouncing, bowling, and an array of exciting activities. 

We need YOUR help to make this event a success! Volunteers, please sign up HERE to lend a hand and ensure our Spring Fling is a blast for everyone!

Join the 2023-2024 PTSA Today and Celebrate 20 Years of Lion Pride!

The PTSA has been with Newcastle Elementary since its doors opened almost 20 years ago, providing the funding and programs to enrich the educational experience to our children. 

PTSA Membership helps fund critical school programs such as:

  • In-classroom monthly art curriculum and art supplies.
  • Family events like Costume Carnival, Science Fair and Multicultural Night.
  • Teacher allotments for classroom books, supplies or special class events. 
  • Community outreach like the holiday toy drive, movie nights, and lunch for the break.
  • Yearbooks, Book Fairs, and much more!
  • An expanded and updated playground in 2019!

Our ability to deliver an exceptional educational experience at Newcastle depends upon EVERYONE. It takes nearly $300 per student to fund PTSA programs for a year. Every dollar makes a difference!

Make your voice heard and become a member today. For the 2023/2024 school year, a family (2-adult) membership costs $25 or $15 for an individual membership. 

Visit to sign up today!

Together we can enrich the educational experience for every family at Newcastle!
