School Sport Physicals will be done the morning of June
3rd 2015. If your child in grades 7-12 is
interested in playing a fall sport for the 2015-2016 school year and would like to
have a school sport physical, please see the Athletic Director, Mr. Lesh, to
obtain the necessary paperwork. A one-time fee of $20.00 is required at the
time of the physical. This fee will
extend to all sports if your child participates in more than one sport. All forms and fee is due by May 29,
2015. Forms can be obtained on our school website under the NHS Athletics Page.
On Tuesday, May 26, the Administration received reports that a teacher appeared to be passed out at his desk in his classroom. The Administration immediately investigated and removed the students from the classroom. The teacher appeared to be intoxicated and was in possession of alcohol, at which point, the Pennsylvania State Police were contacted. The teacher was taken into police custody and removed from the school grounds. The teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending the investigation and banned from school grounds indefinitely. No students or staff members were harmed during the incident. The Newport School District is taking this situation very seriously and is working with the State Police and the school Solicitor’s office to take the necessary steps to investigate and address this incident in an appropriate manner. The School District cannot further comment as this is an active personnel investigation.
GAVRT stands for Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope. It is a decommissioned Deep Space Network telescope run by the Lewis Education Center. Mrs. Olson's 8th grade science classes remotely operated this 500 ton, three stories high, 100 foot diameter Radio Telescope from the classroom. They connected to mission control and took readings on Jupiter for their “Juno Quest” lab, reading the energy emissions in degree Kelvin. They got to see the telescope move into position whenever they calibrated it on a quasar or while taking readings of Jupiter. After the lab they were able to Skype with Dr. Steve Levin, GAVRT lead scientist and JUNO Project Scientist, to ask questions about the Jupiter Quest Lab, their data analysis, and other science questions.
The Newport School District places a high level of emphasis on communication. This emphasis lends itself to an environment where students will receive the best possible educational experience. The District encourages continual communication between parents and staff to support every student. In order to effectively address and facilitate discussion regarding questions or concerns about your child’s education, the District would like issues to be routed through certain channels for communication. In the event that a question or concern should arise, please first contact your student’s teacher. From that point, the respective building administrator may become involved to help facilitate discussion on an issue. If the issue is unresolved at either of these levels, it will be elevated to the Superintendent for review. Should the need arise, the issue may be presented before the School Board for additional consideration. The Newport School District strives for continual growth and a goal to always put students first. Thank you for your support. Ryan Neuhard, Superintendent
