Sept. 8th - The first school newsletter of the year is being sent home with the Oldest or Only child in each family.  Unless a hard copy is requested, all future newsletters can be found by clicking on the "Newsletters" link found across the top of the school webpage. In addition the Council Connection and Council news is available if you follow the link on the left.
Please note, a correction to the School Newsletter.  Open House is Wednesday, Spetember, 17th as stated in the written part of the newsletter, not the 10th as shown in the calendar included with the newsletter.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

It is a pleasure to be back to Newcastle P.S. as the principal. I look forward to meeting everyone in the near future. The Newcastle staff would like to extend a warm welcome to all of our families as a new school year begins. We are looking forward to an exciting year together! Please do not hesitate to contact any of us if you have any questions or concerns as the school year progresses.  My contact info is kelly_potts@kprdsb.ca and (905) 987 - 4262.

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!

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 until all buses have loaded and unloaded.  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!
