Principal's Corner

IDear New Field families,

It is our final week of school year 2023-2024! School ends on Thursday, June 6, 2024. We are thrilled to wrap up another successful year of school - it is incredible to think about how much each child has grown over the past 10 months! I want to say a personal thank you to all of our dedicated, hard-working families: thank you for entrusting your children with us, thank you for supporting their continued learning, growth and development in these incredibly important early years. Your child's success is a direct result of your hard work and partnership with our school community.

This week we will celebrate important transitional moments with our students. As our fantastic fourth grade students close out their primary years at New Field, we look forward to celebrating their achievements and growth on Wednesday, June 5 at 2:15 PM in our school cafeteria with a moving up ceremony. Families are welcome to attend. We will have a ceremony, certificates of achievement, time for photos and light refreshments available. On Thursday, June 6 our fourth grade students will have a class party (students only) from 2:00 - 3:30 PM. Please be sure to share your fourth child's next school of enrollment by completing the form linked here.

Preschool and Kindergarten have graduation ceremonies in classrooms on Thursday, June 6 at 9:15 AM. Families are welcome to wait in our cafeteria from 9:00 - 9:15 and then enter classrooms at 9:15 AM.
