A Message from Our Principal, Ms. Elizabeth Weaver

A Message from Ms. Weaver

Dear Fabulous New Garden Families,

It is hard to believe that October is already here! It seems like we just started school and welcomed everyone back to a new year. I hope that this note finds you and your child doing well and that the beginning of the year has been a positive and productive experience.

As always, we wish to express our sincere gratitude toward our entire school community. We would not be the amazing school that we are without the help and support of all of you.

Thank you and may you have a safe, healthy, and happy fall season!


Elizabeth Weaver

Mrs. Sarah Hannagan’s 5th grade classes have been studying Earth Science. To further peak their interests, over the weekend, students were asked to create a sundial. A sundial, the earliest type of timekeeping device, indicates the time of day by the position of the shadow of some object exposed to the sun’s rays. As the pictures detail, you can actually use one of these sundials to tell the time of day.

Recently two classes, Mrs. Melissa Ricketts and Mr. Troy Harris, partnered to become buddy classes for this school year. Once a month, these two classes will come together to complete a fun activity. On their initial meeting, Mr. Harris’s class helped Mrs. Rickett’s class learn how to log on to the computer and to a computer program called Reading Eggs. The first graders also read a book to the fifth graders. As the pictures show, it was a mutually beneficial time. The fifth graders had the chance to be excellent role models for the first graders. Another activity is planned for later this month. Both classes are bubbling over with excitement for this next activity.

The New Garden PTO recently gave every first grader a New Garden tee-shirt to wear. It was a nice gesture to welcome these young learners to the Bulldog family. Every Friday at New Garden, is Spirit Day, and everyone is encouraged to wear their New Garden gear or blue and white. The New Garden PTO also gave every new student a tee-shirt as well. Look at the smiling faces! It’s quite evident that New Garden is where minds are blooming! Many thanks to the PTO!
