Dear Parents and Guardians of Fourth Grade Students,
I am pleased to inform you that today we held a Fourth Grade Farewell/Step-Up Assembly and Middle School Orientation at Stone Bridge Middle School. The assembly honored our fourth grade students by reflecting on their elementary school experience and providing a chance for the students to look to their future at Stone Bridge Middle School. The students were given special certificates of recognition to mark the end of their elementary experience at Newell. Ms. Negro, Middle School Principal, introduced herself and shared a few highlights the students can look forward to next year at Stone Bridge Middle School. Lastly, our fourth graders were given a tour of the building by current students of the middle school.
We designed this informal student program as a transition activity for our fourth graders to help prepare them for their new grade and new school next year. On August 22nd, Stone Bridge Middle School will host an Open House for parents and students to tour the building and meet some of the terrific staff at Stone Bridge Middle School. Please refer to the Stone Bridge Middle School letter that was distributed to your child today.
It has been an absolute pleasure educating your children and working with you as partners during this exciting journey.

Dear Parents and Guardians of 4th Grade Students,
Earlier today, I invited each of our 4th grade students to a very special event–4th Grade Redbird Walk Down Memory Lane. This will be a time where all of NES students and staff will line the halls and wait for our 4th grade students to parade through the school. As our 4th grade students walk the halls, they will be hearing claps, cheers and statements of praise for all of their accomplishments while here at NES. This is our special way to share with our 4th grade students how proud we are and how excited we are for the next “piece” of their puzzle. I also wanted to extend the invitation to our 4th grade parents to join in the fun by asking you to line the blacktop area by our playground at 3:00PM to clap and cheer on our children! Details about our 4th Grade Redbird Walk Down Memory Lane are noted below.
If you plan on attending this event, please complete the bottom portion of this letter and return to your child’s teacher by Wednesday, June 7th.
Date: Thursday, June 15th
Time: 3:00 PM NES 4th Grade Students to Begin Walk
Location: NES Halls & Playground Area
End Time: 3:20 PM NES Gymnasium
**Weather–if it is raining, we will still hold our event. The only change will be parent location. If it is raining, we will ask parents to report to the gym doors by cottages where you will be invited into the gymnasium to line up along the walls of our gymnasium while our 4th grade students parade around the gym to hear you clap and cheer on your children.
