Message from the Principal

  • Hello Newman Parents!


    Our theme for this school year is “Learning Has No Limits”. We want our cowboys to excel at every level of learning. On Monday, August 7th, we will welcome our Cowboys back to school. I know your students are excited to begin another year and we are ready for them to return. I am aware that many of you have concerns about the safe return of your students to the building. Please be assured that our district has placed specific safety systems and protocols in place to ensure the safety of our students, teachers, and staff. 


    This summer our city experienced excessive heat. I have attached some guidelines that we will be following to ensure everyone stays cool. Please see more detailed information on our website with protocols for dealing with this extreme weather. A copy of these guidelines will also be available at the front office and will be shared with your students on the first day of school. Below, you will find some important reminders to help everyone get ready for a productive learning year. 

    • School supplies for all students may be picked up on Friday during the Open House on August 4th or on the first day of school. 
    • Students are not allowed in the building until 7:45 a.m. Please do not leave students unattended until the doors open. All students must use the front entrance. Do not allow students to enter the campus by the multipurpose building (gym) or the side parking lot entrance. (Parents will be allowed to walk students to class only their first day of enrollment)
    • For the safety and security of our students we are asking all parents and visitors not to stand around in the front entrance of the building once you have dropped your students off. If you need assistance, please ring the bell and come inside the building.
    • We would like to invite you to meet your child's teacher on Friday, August 4th between 1:00 and 4:00. Please make sure you bring your ID.
    • Please make sure you are entering and exiting the parking lot in the correct direction.  
    • You are required to show an ID anytime you visit our campus.  
    • Please make sure you provide the names of any other family or friends who will pick up your child during the day on the campus emergency contact card. 
    • Students in grades PK-2 will be released at the cafeteria exit.
    • Students in grades 3-5 will be released from the gym. If you have older children who will be picking up siblings, they will need to report to the cafeteria instead of the gym.  
    • Please make sure students are picked up by no later than 3:40pm. Any student not picked up at that time will be brought to the front office. You will be required to come inside and sign them out. 
    • Students must be in uniform. School shirts must have the school logo and may be in a polo or t-shirt style. If you are still in the process of getting logo shirts, there will be a grace period of two weeks for students to get their shirts ready. Vendor information may be found on our website. Please have students wear solid navy blue or red shirts until they get the logo shirts. Uniform pants are kaki or navy. (No Jeans) A complete list of guidelines for the dress code may be found on the Newman website.
    • This year we are revising our P.E. times to provide more options and support for your students. Your input and parent choice are highly valued. Please click the link below to complete a survey and provide feedback. Information will also be available during our open house on Friday.
    English Survey:         
    Encuesta En Espanol:

    Please remember that students who are on the roster may not be registered for school. You will need to verify registration before proceeding to the classrooms. On Monday, we will open the campus at 7:30 a.m. to provide additional time for students and parents to locate rooms. All parents are going to report to the cafeteria on Monday before escorting your child to class in order to verify registration.  Thank you for allowing us to serve your child at Newman. We are looking forward to another exciting school year. If you have any questions, please contact the school at 915-236-5825.
