Good Afternoon Families, Today is the start of the school-wide Reading Incentive hosted by the Reading AIS teachers. This year’s theme is Lights. Camera. Read. Students have received a booklet from their classroom teachers to keep track of their reading. The goal is for students to read at least 20 minutes a day for five days a week. Books that are read to students will also count. At the end of the week, students will hand in their booklets to their classroom teachers to receive a ticket. They will hold onto their tickets in the space provided in the booklet. Once a student has received 2 tickets, they can bring their booklet and tickets to the Reading AIS room for a Movie Snack Prize. (donated by Wegmans) After a student has received three tickets, they will get their name on a star for the Newfield School Reading Wall of Fame. When a child has collected five tickets, those tickets will be collected and entered into a drawing to earn MOVIE TICKETS! (donated by Tompkins County Sheriff's Department) The class that reads the most minutes over the next five weeks will earn a POPCORN Party hosted by the Reading AIS teachers. So we hope you can help us encourage your student(s) to pop open a good book and begin to read!

Cold weather is upon us! As we head into the colder weather, it is important to make sure that your child(ren) is dressed appropriately for the weather, as we will continue to have outdoor recess all winter. It is important that your child comes prepared with a coat, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens each day. Please be aware that our nurse will no longer have snow apparel for students to borrow on a routine basis. If she has donated items, she will give them to students who need them. Once the nurse’s donations are gone, there will not be winter apparel for students to borrow.

Rosie the Therapy dog can be seen in the Elementary School each day. She is a registered therapy dog through Therapy Dogs International and has been visiting and bringing joy to student since Ms. Gillette joined the district. Therapy Dogs International (TDI®) is a volunteer organization dedicated to regulating, testing and registration of therapy dogs and their volunteer handlers for the purpose of visiting nursing homes, hospitals, other institutions and wherever else therapy dogs are needed. To belong to Therapy Dogs International (TDI®) all dogs must be tested and evaluated by a Certified TDI Evaluator. A dog must be a minimum of one (1) year of age and have a sound temperament. Each dog must pass a TDI temperament evaluation for suitability to become a Therapy Dog. The test will also include the evaluation of the dog’s behavior around people with the use of some type of service equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.). The students and our Newfield family love Rosie and look forward to many years of hugs and kisses, wags, and smiles from our therapy dog!

The Tompkins County Farm Bureau came to visit on May 27 and presented their Fuel Up to Play Program. Students participated in an obstacle course, received a dairy coloring book, and enjoyed some chocolate milk. The students were also able to meet the Tompkins County Dairy Court and Strawberry the calf. Did you know that there was a creamery that once stood where the Newfield Elementary School is today? Wagon loads of milk were taken from Barnes Hill and Irish Hill to be sold in Ithaca and Cayuta every day. (credit: Newfield Historical Society).
