New England Public School made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) again this year. This is a federally mandated testing program. We have made this every year and in every category. The categories include High School grades 7-12, Elementary grades K-6, and combined school K-12. We are one of the few schools in North Dakota to make this achievement.Published November 22, 2013

Our New England High School students grades 7-12 have taken CPR this fall. This is a great opportunity for our 55 students. Mrs. Shannay Witte taught the class. Thank you Mrs. Witte.
New England received a $3,000 grant for new playground equipment from the North Dakota Community Foundation (NDCF). Check it out and use it often.
Our New England girls volleyball team had a successful season. Congratulations to Coach Taylor, Coach Haley and the players for taking 3rd in the region. Taylor Hewson earned the honor of being selected to the All Region team. Congratulations Taylor, this is quite an honor.
The Booster Club had a very successful fundraiser (Octoberfest) raising money for the music students to go to Chicago. The food was awesome. Thanks to the Booster Club, and to all of the volunteers. A big thank you to Howard and Faye Schiwal for all of the time they donated to this fund-raiser. Thank you to all of you who attended the supper. Once again, if you haven’t considered joining the Booster Club, please consider joining.
The 7th and 8th grade volleyball team also had an awesome year with the 8th grade going undefeated. Thank you Jordyn Bender and Brannigan Bender for a job well done.
Thank you to Clarence Binstock for volunteering to coach Grade 4-6 Football. They also had a great season.
Building Project Update: If you drive by the school, you will see a lot of progress. The brick work on the school addition on all of the wall has been completed. The windows are all in and the inside work is moving right along. The architects and builders assure me they are still on track with the December completion date.
Just a reminder of how to enter the school during the construction.
Gaining Entrance To The School:
Children who walk or ride bike to school should use the gate on the east side of the playground to gain access to the school grounds. Students should enter the school through the elementary entrance on the east side of the school.
Parents who drop off or pick up students should park on McKenzie Street which is on the east side of the school grounds. Children may then gain access to the school grounds through the gate on the east side of the playground to gain access to the school grounds. Students should enter the school through the elementary entrance on the east side of the school.
Students who ride the bus will be dropped off back at the west entrance of the school. Busses will be lined up on the gravel parking lot outside the west entrance after school. Bus students will exit the building at the end of the day through the west entrance.
Students who drive must park in the parking lot. They may gain entrance to the school back at the west entrance next to the shop. They must use the west entrance at the end of the day as well.
Doors to the school will be locked at all times when classes are in session. Please note that visitors during regular business hours must enter through the cafeteria on the east side of the school. Please park on McKenzie Street.
Visitors let into the school need to check in with me. My office is located on the right side two doors down from the cafeteria.
Again, thank you for your understanding during this construction and if you have any questions feel free to give me a call.
