Message from the Principal

Welcome to West Newton Elementary, "The Little School with Big Character!"  On behalf of our students and staff, I thank you for visiting us.  We are a school that values hard work, student achievement, emotional well-being, and positive relationships with our parents and caregivers.  We strive to provide our students with a quality educational experience.

West Newton is a happy and successful school with a strong community spirit.  We pride ourselves on our achievements, academic standards, and our high expectations for our students to succeed.  Our highly experienced staff are strongly committed to supporting and nurturing your child's abilities and are driven by a passion for excellence in education.

We are a pre-K to 4th grade school with approximately 240 pupils.  We are excited about our STEM and Career Readiness initiatives and continually implement new technologies and programs to further enhance your child's growth and development.

This year, our school's theme is: Pawsitively Roaring with Pride!

  • R - RESPECT
  • O - OBEY
  • A - ACHIEVE
  • R - RESPONSIBLE
  • S - SAFE

We provide a safe, caring, and inclusive environment in which children of all abilities can thrive.  We aim to meet our students' needs and enhance their learning through our well-planned and balanced curriculum.  We supplement this with a variety of enrichment activities, differentiated instruction, intervention systems, Title 1 support, and special education services.

We are proud of West Newton Elementary School and the opportunities it offers.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.

ENROLLING YOUR CHILD AT WEST NEWTON ELEMENTARY

Any new student(s) to the West Newton Elementary School must first register at our Central Registration which is located at the Yough Senior High School, 919 Lowber Rd, Herminie, PA.  You may call Deb W., our Central Registrar at 724-446-7272, ext. 1000 for more information.  More information, along with the paperwork needed, can be found on the District Home Page.

 

SECURITY MEASURES FOR VISITORS

Our school currently uses the Hall Pass system.  This requires any visitor to our building or parent/guardian picking up a student, to have their driver's license scanned.  This system checks to see if anyone entering our building is a Megan's Law offender.  There are no exceptions to this requirement.

 

UP-TO-DATE RECORDS

We ask that you keep the office aware of any changes that may have occurred in addresses, phone numbers or emergency contacts so that we can keep our records current.  This information is VITAL in case of any emergencies or for use in our District All-Call System.
