    It has come to our attention that individuals are charging families to complete registration paperwork and charging per student fees. Please be aware that Newport Public Schools does not charge for school registration, and translation services are provided if needed, at no cost to the families at any times.  No one should be charging families and students to register. This service is free through the Newport Public Schools.

  • 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!
