Welcome Message from Mrs. Eastes
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your children to New Palestine Elementary for the 2014-2015 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.
As the new principal, I am very excited about becoming a part of the New Palestine Elementary family- again. This opportunity brings my professional life full circle. I did my student teaching in 1999 in this school and was blessed to spend my first year teaching here. When Sugar Creek Elementary opened the next year. I was transferred and spent eleven wonderful years teaching there. For the last three years I have enjoyed being the Dean of Students and Athletic Director at Doe Creek Middle School. I am thrilled to have the chance to return to the school where I started my career in working with children! Please stop in to say hello as we approach the new school year. Go Dragons!
