Dear Parents, 

The leaves are changing colors and the days are getting shorter;  we are soon approaching the Holiday Season.  Last year, Newport Independent Schools served many families during the holidays.  We are thankful for the generosity of so many community and school partners willing to help.

Adopt A Class Spotlight spotlight

I have had the privilege to work with and teach in Newport Primary classrooms since graduating from Xavier University and starting with PwC five years ago, and have been our Adopt a Class Team Lead for the last three years. We have loved teaching each of our second grade classes, including  this year with Miss Coleman’s class! We’ve done a variety of different lessons to learn about money, budgeting, computer science, coding, engineering, etc. and have had several fields trips including a holiday party at our downtown office and a year end trip to the zoo or aquarium.

Some of our favorite lessons were our computer science and technology lessons developed by Code.org and PwC. Code.org is an awesome nonprofit whose sole purpose is getting computer science and technology into the classroom. Over the last year, PwC has partnered with them to develop easy to learn computer science curriculum which is FREE and can be accessed at https://studio.code.org/s/pwc. Specifically, our class utilized the Hour of Code curriculum that can be accessed at https://code.org/learn. Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries with over 200+ one-hour tutorials, available in over 45 languages. Activities require no experience and can be run on browsers, tablets, and smartphones - some don’t require any computer at all. Please consider using one or multiple of these FREE resources and if you have any interest in having myself or another PwC employee come teach in your classroom, feel free to reach out to Molly!"  

NIS Partner with United Way and Born Learning Academy Born Learning

The bornlearning® Academy is a series of workshops for families with at least one child younger than 5. Together, we learn how we can prepare our children for school, starting when they are born. We have dinner with our families, break out into groups and learn how to Turn Everyday Moments into Learning Opportunities.
