Sunshine and Well-Wishes for Dr. Wood
Our fearless leader, Dr. Wood, is out and on the mend for the next couple of weeks. We would like to give him a proper "Welcome Back" from the pride of Newcastle Lions. We will be collecting signatures and well-wishes from the students, staff, and Newcastle Elementary community on a large poster and card that will be presented to him on his first day back. Additionally, we will put an envelope out in front of the school to collect cards, notes, and drawings. Collections will continue through Tuesday, October 19th. Questions? Contact Outreach at
