  • 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.

  • Congratulations to Millena Carapia, currently a 5th grader at the Frank E. Thompson Middle School! Last spring, while a 4th grade student at the Claiborne Pell Elementary School, Mellena worked with Art Supervisor Diane Sheehan on artwork to represent the State of Rhode Island for the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Millena worked on a design with the state flag, bird and state flower. Each state is represented at the annual Easter Egg Roll, and Mellena Carapia’s design was selected as the Rhode Island design! What an amazing honor!
