Stand Up for a Safe Utah

In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, we want to invite you to join KSL as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. We have a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app.  As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.  

Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone.  

Encourage your friends to download the app

Donate to our School

At Newman Elementary, 80% of our students receive free or reduced lunch and many of our families can’t afford even the basic necessities. 

Please consider a contribution so we can provide our students with the best education possible.  100% of your donation goes toward the initiative of your choice.

Coding with the Utah Jazz

We had 46 of our students participate in a fantastic “Kids for Coding” event sponsored by the Utah Jazz!
On Wednesday, December 6th, they traveled by bus to the Fulton Library on the UVU campus where they spent a couple of hours learning about and practicing their coding skills.  They all arrived back at school excited and loaded with prizes. Thanks fabulous Newman students, Utah Jazz, and our hosts from UVU!  This was a fun, and memorable day for all who attended.
