Join Us As Dr. Wood Presents “How To Build A Growth Mindset At Home”
PTSA General Membership Meeting Wednesday, Sept. 25, 6:30-7:30pm in the Library

Our first PTSA General Membership meeting will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 25 from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Newcastle Elementary Library.

Sometimes growing up can be tough! How can we support our children, while also allowing them the opportunities to develop the grit and determination needed for success in life as an adult? Dr. Wood will be sharing tips for developing a Growth Mindset for students as well as ideas and strategies all parents can use to support their children at home.

We will be voting on our PTSA Mission and Goals as well as our Standing Rules and 2019-2020 budget. It’s a great opportunity to see where your PTSA dollars go. We hope to see you there! And if you have ideas for other topics that could be of interest, please contact Trisha Marshall at

Win Your Child's Class A Donut Party (And Your Teacher Some Money)!

Limited Supply of 2018/2019 Yearbooks Available!

Did you miss out on a yearbook for your child last year? Our vendor surprised us with a few extra and they’re available for $20 each. Please contact Jessica Anderson at if you’d like to grab one.

Volunteer Spotlight

Our school wouldn’t be what it is without our amazing volunteers. We are so appreciative of everyone who dedicates their time in any way. This week we’d like to thank the parents who took time out of their days to help make picture day run seamlessly for our kids and staff.
