Through hearing and reflecting upon the stories, the students will learn how storytelling is teaching. They will learn about the beliefs and philosophies of the First People of this land through listening to the legends. Students will also learn to create tribal designs that make the stories visual.

Winterfest - Light up the Night

Newport Heights Elementary Winterfest 2022 - Light up the Night is coming Friday, December 9th from 5:00-6:30

With this event our goal is to bring our diverse cultures together to celebrate the many winter festivals and holidays held throughout the world! We hope to both affirm the identities of our students and build their cultural competency. Students, their families, and the community will come together to decorate the 1st floor windows of our school with displays to celebrate their families' cultural or religious winter holidays.

* Inspired by beautiful event hosted by Somerset Elementary in the 2021/2022 school year.

Holiday Gift Card Drive

Newport Heights Elementary Book Fair is coming Monday, December 5th through Friday, December 9th.

Due to funding shortages many of our community partners will be limited in their ability to assist families with holiday needs this year. Donated gift cards will go directly to Newport Heights students and their families.

$25 increments is suggested, but any amount will help. Please drop donations at the main office (Attn: Ana Lewis) by the end of November.
