THANK YOU, Families!

Family Night at the Pumpkin Patch was a great success! Fletcher Farms estimated about $1000 of food that was donated by our 90 families! That is also $180 going to the Issaquah Food Bank on our behalf thanks to the farm! Thank you to all who came out; we hope you had a wonderful experience.
Gift-A-Book was another fabulous success! Thanks to the generosity of our families, we are able to add 113 books to our school library! 
Leo the Lion got a makeover! Once again, the generosity of our families afforded us the ability to purchase our own Leo the Lion costume! We had previously been renting Leo and now we have our forever mascot to share with the school for many years to come! Stay tuned as he is sure to make an appearance soon!

Order Your Spirit Wear!

Show your school spirit by purchasing Newcastle Lion Spirit Wear just in time for the holidays! We have winter hats, masks, hoodies and more! Shop HERE through November 19th. They will be delivered the second week of December to Newcastle Elementary.

PTSA Membership Drawing!
Our membership drive is in full swing, and we've had two winners for our November drawing! Jeff Ostlund and Eric Huang each won a $50 gift card to a local Newcastle business! There will be another drawing on the 1st of December and all PTSA members are entered to win. Be sure your name is in the drawing by becoming a member.

Recess Volunteers Needed!
Our paras could use extra eyes on the playground! There is a new procedure to be an approved volunteer at the school. Please email to receive information on how to sign up! We'd love your help and your kiddos love to see you on the playground!
