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! 



All students will graduate from Newton Municipal School District college or career ready.

Motto:   Better    Stronger    Together - It's a Great Day to Be a Tiger!
