Newport Primary School Vision

NPS WildcatEVERY child will be proficient and prepared for life, work, and citizenship in the 21st Century!

The Wildcat Way

1.  I will greet adults by looking in their eyes and using their name or Ma’am or Sir. 
2.  I will keep my eyes on the speaker.
3.  I will immediately say thank you when given something.
     I will perform random acts of kindness.
4.  I will speak in complete sentences. 
5.  I will tell the truth. 
6.  I will say "Excuse me," if someone bumps into me even if it's not my fault. 
7.  I will congratulate others when they succeed.

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!
