CONGRATULATIONS
2021 SCHOOL CRASHERS RECIPIENT
WEST NEWTON ELEMENTARY

Each year, the Georgia United Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union to offer its School Crashers program to K-12 schools in Georgia. The School Crashers grant program is designed to unite communities, donors and volunteers to complete and support local improvement projects for deserving schools. Over the last seven years, School Crashers has positively impacted the learning environments for children at 50 schools with improvements valued at $1.4 million
West Newton Elementary is a Title I school serving the largest population of students receiving free and reduced lunches in Newton County. This grant will allow the transformation of the Wildcat Woosah into a specially designed sensory room for kindergarten through fifth grades to receive self-regulatory support. In addition, the grant will allow for Cozy Corner sensory kits to be created for classroom checkouts to help decrease classroom disturbances and inappropriate classroom behaviors. This place will be a great benefit and continue to provide multitiered systems of support for the ethnically and diverse student population at West Newton Elementary.

Little ScholarsFLYER:
Little Scholars Summer Program

Looking for something fun and educational for your young student to do this summer? NCSS has the answer—the Little Scholars Program for rising kindergarten and first grade students. This unique, fun, and free summer program will take place Mondays through Thursdays from June 14 through July 15, 2021 at Live Oak Elementary and Newton County Theme School. Hours of operation will be from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

At Little Scholars, students will participate in fun, engaging activities as they visit five different themes. The themes are Blasting Off into Space, Diving into the Deep Blue Sea, Into the Great Outdoors, Down on the Farm, and a Safari in the Savanna. Each week, students will rotate to a new theme. During each theme, students will focus on academic standards that will build the foundation students need to be successful in school.

Little Scholars will provide activities in reading, vocabulary, writing, and math. Science and social studies will be integrated through hands-on and engaging activities. The program will have a strong emphasis on phonics, sight words, and early numeracy. Skills taught during this program will be based on the Georgia Standards of Excellence, giving students a head start for the 2021-2022 school year. The program is free for NCSS students entering kindergarten and first grade. Meals and modified transportation will be provided.

Registration is limited at each location. To register your child for this program, visit the following link: https://forms.gle/w8NEttfxu5WNYLwk7.
