Welcome Message from Mrs. Eastes
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your children to New Palestine Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year!
The staff at NPE is committed to high expectations for all students and to providing the best possible learning environment. It is our belief that we are partners in the education of your children. We will continue to work together as a team of students, parents, teachers, staff, and community as we encourage your children to grow in many ways. We want them to believe in themselves, achieve knowledge, gain social skills, and treat others with kindness. I expect our children to become well-rounded adults, contributing to our community as a result of their nurturing at New Palestine Elementary.
New Palestine Elementary has a strong tradition of parent involvement. I encourage you to find your niche at NPE. Whether it is volunteering in the Media Center, reading to the class, punching letters for bulletin boards, serving a few hours at our annual carnival, or a myriad of other opportunities, there is a place for you in our school.
NPE has a culture of achievement! Our school is proud to share that we had the highest passage rate in Hancock County last year on the IREAD 3 test. We are also an A school! We believe all children can learn and we provide the tools and support necessary for growth. Students received interventions in their areas in need of growth and enrichment in their areas of high academic achievement. We also have extracurricular academic opportunities. We have both a math bowl and spell bowl team. We also host the local spell bowl competition. Last year our older students had the opportunity to participate in Genius Hour. We are dedicated to a rich environment of perseverance and academic excellence at NPE!
If you are a new family to New Palestine or if you are thinking about transferring to our school, please give me a call or email me. I'd love to give you a tour of our beautiful facility and answer any questions you may have!
I absolutely love being the principal at NPE- where children come first!
