Dear Newton Community School District Families, 

As we enter into the second half of our academic year, I want to take a moment to communicate our excitement and commitment towards our students' educational journey. 

Staying Engaged and Involved 

The involvement of each family in our school community is invaluable. I encourage you to stay actively engaged in your child's academics and extracurricular activities. Your interest and support play a crucial role in their success and well-being. 

Keeping Up with School Events 

Our Activities and Athletic Calendar is a great resource for staying informed about upcoming events. I encourage you to regularly check it for updates on school activities, sports events, and other important dates. This will help you remain connected and participate in the vibrant life of our school community. 

Looking Ahead with Optimism 

As we move forward into the year, let’s do so with optimism and a shared commitment to the growth and achievement of our students. Your continued support and participation are what make our district a wonderful place for education and development. 

Thank you for your ongoing involvement in our school community. Here's to a successful and fulfilling second half of the school year! 


Warm regards, 

Tom Messinger
