THANK YOU for all of our holiday help this season!

~Our Winter Toy & Clothing Drive benefiting Eastside Baby Corner completed with a lot of items to donate! Thank you to our chair, Luisa Gass, for her hard work! Debbie Park and Jenn McAleer, we appreciate your time and support also!

Spirit Wear Fridays!
Remember, every Friday we show our spirit! Wear your favorite Newcastle spirit wear or our school colors, yellow/green! You can also choose to represent your favorite team: football, hockey, soccer, etc! 


Due to the great success of our school auction last year, our school earned this amazing GaGa Ball Pit! It’s a great addition to our playground and the kids are excited to get some use out of it!

However, we need HELP to get it set up and taken down each week. We are looking for 2-3 super heroes to come each Monday before 10:00a to set up and Fridays after 3:15p to take down.

Mr. Cornwall will be doing a brief demonstration on Friday, 1/7, at 3:15p. If you are able to help and be a hero to the kids, please email
