    Today’s message of peace:

    Nonviolence is a way of life. We don’t pick and choose when we want to be nonviolent. Instead, we practice nonviolence each and every moment, in every day. Our thoughts, words and actions can always be nonviolent, and often the use of Nonviolence takes courage. 

    Joke of the Day:  What do you do when your nose is on strike?  Pick It....

    Now here’s Ms. Mackey.


    • Help support Bobby Zeller’s Senior Project by donating NEW teddy bears or stuffed animals.  They are being collected and distributed to the patrol officers of the Newport Police Department to be given to children as a source of comfort during a traumatic event.


    • They can be dropped off in either the Designated Drop Box in the TMS Main Office or RHS Main Office Jan 13th through the 31st.  He will also be collecting them on Jan 31st & Feb 1st at the door of the Rogers Theatre Company’s Winter Play.  Bobby challenges all members of the Class of 2020, his Cross Country and Track & Field teammates, NPS Faculty and Staff to show their Newport Pride and donate ONE comfort animal!

  • Cold and Flu Season is Here!

    It is important that students who are sick stay home to decrease the spread of illness in school. The flu typically presents with a moderate to high fever, severe headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. Students and adults with these symptoms should stay home and contact their doctor when the symptoms first appear. A flu shot and frequent handwashing are great first lines of defense against the flu.

    Students with a temperature greater than 100.0 F, vomiting, diarrhea, chills, or frequent congested coughing and nasal congestion with nose blowing should stay home. Mild cold symptoms (stuffy nose, mild cough, sneezing, no fever) do not prevent a child from going to school.

    Please contact the school nurse 401-619-7151 if your child is diagnosed with influenza (the flu), pneumonia, chicken pox, whooping cough, Fifths disease or any other contagious childhood illness so proper notification can be made to students and faculty that may be at risk due to exposure.  Thank you, Nurse Buterbaugh
