Newport Primary Receives VSA Art Award

VSANewport Primary School was a recipient of a 2017 VSA Art Award.  The VSA Kentucky Arts Inclusion Program gives out twenty-five to thirty awards to schools across Kentucky for arts projects that include students of all abilities.  This program was designed by VSA Kentucky (in partnership with the Kentucky Department of Education) to provide opportunities and experiences in the arts for all children (with and without disabilities) that interface with KAS and the classroom curriculum in mainstream settings.  It is an opportunity for classroom teachers and artists to work together to plan a fully inclusionary arts project.Guest Artist

A guest artist came to our school during the month of March to work with two second grade classes on a clay lesson.  The students created functional clay slab boxes with lids that incorporated a theme.  The students had a great time learning about clay and creating their one-of-a-kind boxes!

As part of our new facilities plan, Newport Independent Schools are required to create a Local Planning Committee consisting of various members.

The Newport Board of Education will make a determination from applicants who will serve on the planning committee.

Lost and Found

lost and foundWith the cold comes many forgotten and misplaced winter clothing.  All lost and found items are hung up in the cafeteria for the day in hopes students will claim their items.  Unclaimed items are moved into the stairwell near the office.  It is helpful if your child's name is written on all items so they can be returned when found.

 


Car Line

· safetyPlease encourage your child to be ready to exit the car - seat belt off, backpack together, coat/gloves on.  This will keep the line moving.

· Students are only permitted to exit the car when in the car line.  For safety concerns, students should not exit the vehicle in the driving lane.

· If the driver or adult in the car needs to get out to help the student or do things (e.g talk, hair, sign slips) please pull past the car line closer to the corner.

· There is no parking anywhere in the car line.  Preschoolers are dropped off by the office doors so this area needs to be clear.
