Newhart Middle School’s Back to School Night

Thursday, August 25, 2016

6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

 

Dear Parents,

 

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend Newhart Middle School’s Back to School Night. We are excited about sharing our middle school program with you. Back to School night is a special night exclusively for parents or guardians of students enrolled in our school.  Each student has been encouraged to write his/her schedule of classes in the space provided below. A map of the school is on the reverse side of this letter.  Since this is an evening for parents, we ask that students not attend.  

 

This evening is designed to provide you with an opportunity to visit your child’s classes and meet his or her teachers. During the fifteen minutes in each class, the teachers will explain their instructional programs, discuss learning objectives and display instructional materials and textbooks. Although there is no time for individual conferences, appointments can be made with teachers if there is a need to do so.

 

Parking is available in the front lot, the back black top, the Senior Center, the soccer center and along Veterans Way; however we strongly encourage carpooling.  We recommend bringing a flashlight if necessary as it could be dark before the end of the program.   

 

Coffee and treats will be provided by the Newhart Middle School’s PTA in the library.


 

Newhart Middle School will be on a minimum day schedule on FRIDAY, the day after, Back to School night and will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m.  Feel like an after school treat?  Go to the Snow Station after school Friday from 1-4pm and they will donate 20% back to Newhart!  What a great way to support our school and have fun with friends.

Snow Station is located at: 25380 Marguerite Pkwy, Suite A

 

Best wishes for a wonderful evening!

 

Sincerely,



 

Jeff Jones

Principal

Attention NEW 7th grade parents:

Tdap Vaccine Requirement For Students Entering 7th Grade.  In order to avoid long lines at orientation, Newhart MS is asking our current 6th grade families to bring a copy of their Tdap records to the office prior to the end of the year.  For the 2016-2017 school year, all students entering 7th through 12th grades will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster shot (commonly called the “Tdap” vaccine) before starting school.  Whooping cough (pertussis) has been widespread in California. Many students have had to miss school because they were sick. To help protect your children and others from whooping cough, a new California law now requires students to be vaccinated against whooping cough. 

 

Do ALL 7th grade students need to get the pertussis immunization?  Yes. All students going into 7th grade must have proof of having had the Tdap booster shot. This includes current students, new students and transfer students in both public and private schools. Many students have already received the vaccine and simply need to supply proof to the school, so check with your doctor or provider.   As soon as you have proof of the Tdap, please bring it into the office so that we may clear you for next year.
