Celebrate our Student Success!

During the current 2019-2020 school year one example of equitable supports to produce academic growth includes our 5th grade students.  They are averaging 68 Lexile points of reading growth every 2 months.  This means that our students will average approximately 1.5 years of grade-level growth in 1 school years time.  We are proud of our student’s hard work, teacher’s dedication to equity, and parent’s support that makes these gains possible. 

West High Latinos In Action students have started tutoring kindergarten students

Twice each week, students from West High (LIA) come to Newman and tutor in our Kindergarten classrooms.  They work with students for 30 minutes using the Dyad reading strategy.  We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to seeing our Kindergartener’s reading skills increase!

Thank you, Wasatch Gardens!

We want to thank Wasatch Gardens for cleaning up and repairing our school greenhouse.  Our students will now be able to use it for the next growing season.

You are awesome!

The greenhouse looks great!
