Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

NTES HAWK families—

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!  I am very excited to welcome back returning families and meet our new families within the community, as we prepare to embark on another school year. 

Our “Meet and Greet” event will take place Thursday, August 20th with Kindergarten families dropping in between 3:00 - 4:00 p.m., and 1st through 5th grade families stopping by between 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

As an elementary school principal, I believe the following components are an ongoing focus of a student-centered, highly successful school— safety, climate, expectations, and accountability.  I will reference these often when making decisions that are in the best interests of our students as well as aligned with Union County Public Schools policies and procedures.

Additionally, clear and ongoing communication is a key ingredient to highly successful schools. I value input from school community members and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns, or would like to share a positive anecdote from any experience you or your children have had. 

My staff and I are eager for the new school year to get started so that your children begin to fill our hallways and classrooms with smiles and laughter.  I look forward to seeing many of you very soon…


Proud to be a HAWK,

Catherine Perry

Fifth Grade Students Give Back

The 5th grade students are giving back to New Town by working on the flower and tree bed by the bus lot. They are planting two Maple trees and many flowers, shrubs and herbs. Every year, 5th grade students give back by planting greenery in different locations around the school. It is a way for them to say “Thank You” for their memories and years spent at New Town Elementary.  All students who participated will be given a leaf to add to the “Give Back Tree” which will be located outside of the cafeteria.
