  • Public schools tend to be the heart and soul of any community; so, we believe, it is with the Newport Public Schools and the "City by the Sea."  The experience that we provide our students, as you can see in the "year end review", are varied, important, and contribute to the development of a new generation of involved citizens.  Click here to read the Newport Public Schools 2012-2013 Year in Review!

  • April is Month of the Military Child

    Each year at this time our nation recognizes the contribution that the military child makes as their parent or parents serve either on Active Duty or in the Reserve components of the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, or Coast Guard. After twelve years of war, though our country is eager to turn its attention elsewhere, the acknowledgement of this very special group of children is more important than ever.

  •  Arbor Day

    Arbor Day (Observed)

    The first Arbor Day took place on April 10, 1872 in Nebraska. It was the brainchild of Julius Sterling Morton (1832-1902), a Nebraska journalist and politician originally from Michigan. Throughout his long and productive career, Morton worked to improve agricultural techniques in his adopted state and throughout the United States when he served as President Grover Cleveland's Secretary of Agriculture. But his most important legacy is Arbor Day.
