  • The One Newport subgroup of the Newport Strategic Plan subcommittee has created the above video which helps to explain the One Newport concept.  The video below, is an example of what can happen when community agencies and organizations partner with Newport Public Schools.  The occasion of the video below, was a surprise presentation prepared by Glenn Lewis from the Island Moving Company, who regularly works with a group of Pell students teaching them dance at the company's studio on Charles Street every Tuesday afternoon.  The Island Moving Company, celebrating 35 years of service to the Newport community, was being recognized by the Newport Public Education Foundation, a local charitable foundation whose mission is to enhance the learning of the students of Newport Public Schools. The foundation annually recognizes a local business with the Noreen Stonor Drexel Partner in Education award, and this year, the Island Moving Company was being recognized by the Newport Public Education Foundation.

  • School Hours Changing

    Safety of students is of the utmost importance at Claiborne Pell Elementary School. To help support bus arrival and dismissal we will be changing the Pell school start time to 9:00 am and dismissal will be promptly at 3:30 pm.  We will begin serving breakfast at 8:30 in the cafeteria.  Parent drop off time will begin at 8:45 am and pickup line will begin at 3:25 pm.  The Pell Annex, located at the John F. Kennedy School, will adhere to the same schedule and times.   We apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause your family. We are looking forward to a great school year! Thanks for all you do to support our students!
