Some of our classrooms had a special guest reader, Mrs. Paula Sigmon. Mrs. Sigmon visited several classrooms within the first two weeks of school reading the book “Stanley the Dog: The First Day of School.” Students were able to talk about their first day/week of school and relate it to Stanley the Dog. Thank you Mrs. Paula Sigmon for reading to our #nextlevel learners! #nextlevel #NNESBulldogs #groundedandgrowing
Some of our fifth-grade students got a lesson on the American and North Carolinian flags on Friday morning when a former JROTC member held a flag training session. Our fifth-grade teachers decided to start giving fifth-grade students more responsibilities, and one of those is to be in charge of raising and lowering the flag each day. These students received a lesson in how to fold the flag, raise and lower it, and what things on it represent. We are very proud of all our fifth-grade leaders at North Newton. It's a great day to be a bulldog!! #nextlevel #NNESBulldogs #groundedandgrowing

As we welcome back our students, we would like to take a moment to welcome our new staff to the bulldog squad. Today features our new Dual Immersion 3rd Grade teacher, Ms. Kathleen Bravo. Kathleen Bravo is from Barranquilla, Colombia. When asked to tell a little bit about herself she stated “If somebody had asked me 20 years ago what I wanted to be, to be honest, being a teacher was not in the agenda; but you know what? I do not regret having chosen this path at all! My journey in the teaching field started 9 years ago, and so far, it has been an amazing adventure.” She studied Foreign Languages, and had the opportunity to finish her double-master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and Linguistics in 2020. Ms. Brave has worked on a variety of educational levels and she loves the beginning of each school year because “the beginning of a new school year is always a new experience.” What she is most looking forward to is to enjoy the process, learn from her colleagues, learners, and parents, and encourage her students to become the best version of themselves. In fact, it is one of the greatest pieces of advice someone has ever given to her: “we should trust and love the journey, learn, grow, and evolve to approach our essential self. Once we get the most of our strengths, it is easier to help others maximize their personal growth.” Welcome Ms. Bravo!! #nextlevel #NNESBulldogs #groundedandgrowing
