Dec. 10th - The Food and Toy Drive continues this week.  Thank you to the families who've already dropped off their donations under our fantastically decorated tree in the front foyer!  Thank you to the parents who graciously decorated it for us!.  Friday morning will be the last opportunity to make donations as we will be packing everything up for pick up.   Remember all food donations and proceeds from our Christmas Concert tickets will be sent to the local Clarington Food Bank and all toys and other donations are going Bethesda House.

Dec. 1st - The December school newsletter is now available!
Nov. 27th - Concert ticket update - Ticket sales have been brisk and Monday, December 1st will be the very last day to send in any ticket orders as we are very, very close to selling out both shows.  
     Food and Toy Drive - Once again this year, Newcastle PS will be doing their part to help those less fortunate during the holiday season. We will be holding our annual Food and Toy Drive between December 1st and 12th. All toys and other items collected will be donated to Bethesda House, a shelter that provides assistance for women and children who have experienced domestic violence. All food donations, as well as all money collected from the sale of tickets for our Christmas Concert, will be going to the local Clarington Food Bank. Thank you for your continued support and generosity and for helping make sure everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Nov. 19th - Christmas Concert ticket forms were sent home today with every Grade 1 to 6 student.  Tickets are sure to go fast so return your forms quickly!  Please note, the Kindergarten Christmas concert is a different concert (December 12th) and they will not be performing in this show therefore, forms were not sent home with those students.

Please be sure you come to a full stop at the 3-way stop on Glass Court.  Durham Regional Police are on site almost every day.  They have been issuing warnings since Jan. but will now start to issue tickets.  Each ticket costs $110 so please be sure to come to a FULL stop.  Not only will this save you money, but it will keep everyone safe!  
 Please read the attached poster regarding vandalism in our Clarington community.   2014 Graffiti ad.pdf
Parent Involvement Corner - As parents and guardians, we all want our children to do well in school and in life.  Research shows students are more successful when their parents are involved in their education.  But what does parent involvement include?  KPR's Parent Involvement Committee - which includes parent, guardian and community representatives - reminds busy parents they likely are involved in their child's schooling already.  That involvement may include communicating regularly with the school; helping your child with schoolwork; attending school events; and more.  During the summer, in particular, parents can help their children keep up their literacy and math skills.  Watch the school website over the next few months for practical, easy ways to help keep your children learning throughout the summer months.  For more information on parent involvement, visit www.kprschools.ca

Please...have your children walk to school or ride the bus if at all possible.  Our parking lots are too small to handle a large volume of cars.  The south parking lot is dedicated to staff parking and is almost always full.  The north parking lot is dedicated to daycare staff, daycare parents, and those dropping off children for Junior and Senior Kindergarten.  The bus loop is closed and is to be used by buses only. We have several children crossing the area from the street and this helps maintain safety. As well, due to the number of buses that also come for presentations and field trips, we must maintain this area for buses only. We ask parents of children in grades 1 and 2 to drop their children off using the Glass Court entrance.  We ask parents of children in grades 3 and up to drop their children off using the Beaver Street entrance behind the school.  Thanks so much for helping us to keep our children safe!
