Kindergarten Activities

The Newman PTC has a committee specifically for kindergarteners and their families to help ensure you have a wonderful first experience at Newman.

This is an exciting time in your child’s life, and yours too! We look forward to our time together and hope you will consider becoming active in the Newman PTC. It’s a great way to meet other Newman families and help contribute to your child’s social, emotional, and academic learning. Not to mention, the kids really love having their parents involved!

In addition, we would love to add your email address to our Kindergarten list! This email list will be a great source of kindergarten-only events and information throughout the school year!
