Kids Heart Challenge Heart hero

This year, we’re launching the Kids Heart Challenge at Newport Primary.  It’s your child’s chance to be a Heart Hero by learning about heart health, spreading the word and raising funds to save other children.  Have your child go to so they can take one of the three challenges and email family and friends to ask for donations.  Your child will also receive a packet in PE to collect donations.  The #kidsheartchallenge will end on February 28th and students need to return their packets from February 25 – 28.  Thank you for supporting the physical and emotional well –being of our students and the American Heart Association.

First Grade Community Service Learning Project we're loving it

As a community service learning project, the First Grade Class at NPS will be collecting pull tabs to donate to Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House. We’re helping keep families together when it matters most, and we’re giving the students the joy of giving and teaching our students the value of recycling!

Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for the families of critically ill children seeking medical treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Pull tabs are recycled to earn money to help provide all the comforts of “home” to these families. NPS can also earn rewards for participating in this program. Our goal is to become a member of the Thanks a Million Club by collecting 1,000 pounds of tabs and earn a visit from Ronald McDonald himself! We can also earn certificates of appreciation and gifts for increments of 250 and 500 pounds.

Students can start bringing tabs to school ASAP. We will be having a friendly competition among first grade classrooms.  Each class will weigh the tabs that they have collected each week on a balance scale and help in creating a graph in our hallway showing how much each room has collected. The classroom with the most by MONDAY, MAY 6th , will win a class McDonald’s shake party during school hours.


Thanks for all of your support,

The First Grade Teachers

Adopt A Class Spotlight spotlight

The Clerk’s Office of United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, through Adopt A Class, partnered with Mrs. Naomie Dean’s second-grade class this year.  Once a month we visit the classroom for one hour to share our experiences and learn from each other.  In January, we learned about different types of bridges, built bridges, and tested them to see how much weight they could sustain before they collapsed.  Fun was had by all!  Over the next three months, we will learn about each branch of the federal government.  First, we will learn about the Executive Branch, how to become President, and what the President’s powers are.  Next, we will learn about the Legislative Branch and write and (maybe) pass a bill!  Finally, we will find out what the Judicial Branch does and get fitted for a judge’s robe.

The 2019 Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Crisis Component begins January 7, 2019 and ends March 29, 2019 or until all funds are expended, whichever comes first. The program is open to income eligible households who are responsible for their home heating costs. The Crisis Component of LIHEAP does require a disconnect notice OR a current bill with a past due amount for metered utilities; or for households to be within 4 days of running out of bulk fuel. For 2019, NKCAC will participate in a program that will allow a current bill with a past due amount on your metered utility bill to meet the crisis definition. Households interested in applying for the program can call the auto- scheduler for an appointment at 859-439-4004 or 502-991-8390 and follow the prompts OR schedule online at anytime at your convenience.
