It’s a Great Day to Be a Tiger!!!

Greetings from the Newton Municipal School District. “Intelligence plus character is the goal of true education”, says Martin Luther King, Jr. I believe that every child can learn and become a productive citizen.  The task I have been given is truly a challenging one.  I like to think of challenges as an opportunity for greatness.  We must experience a culture and educational change in order for student success to take place.  To continue to do the same things and expect different results is a recipe for insanity.  Therefore, we must change our teaching to reflect “Best Practices.” My goal is to improve student achievement and to lead Newton Municipal School District to success and to a top level accountability rating.  Our students will be socially, technologically and academically prepared to be successful, world class citizens.   The district will embrace the state's College to Career Readiness Standards as its curriculum. John Dewey said, “What the best and wisest parent wants for his own CHILD, that must the Community want for All its children.”   “College and Career Ready”

           We  may not have it All Together-But-Together we have it ALL!   Better-Stronger-Together


The Newton Municipal School District has as its mission to create socially, economically, and technologically productive world citizens by teaching them to think, reason, and use a variety of techniques to adapt to the challenges of society.


  • To create a challenging, supportive educational environment that results in higher levels of achievement for all students

  • To hold everyone in the organization accountable for contributing to the educational bottom line, student achievement

  • To create an organizational culture that treats its people as its most valuable resource, invests in their growth and development, and encourages risk-taking consistent with the organizations mission and beliefs

  • To create within the total community a sense of ownership of the schools and a belief that a quality public school system is an investment in the continued growth and prosperity of the city
