Cardinals,

 We are approaching the end of the first month of our school year already and we are in the middle of one of the most exciting times in a community -Homecoming!Homecoming in Newton has really redefined this school tradition to me. The level of support and excitement in our entire community is amazing.

I have always felt the level of support our school district receives from the community of Newton is something special.Throughout the year we receive donations of school supplies, volunteers help enhance the opportunities for our students, our community recognizes and welcomes our new teachers, and countless other displays of support are evident. Each of these are greatly appreciated and welcomed. They are important to our students and staff.But there is another display of community support -the homecoming parade and celebration on the square.

It is incredible to see the turnout along the streets from the Newton High School to the downtown square.The streets are lined with community members.The cheering for our different groups marching or riding in the parade is constant throughout the entire parade. It is obvious that our community is behind us 100%.While we at the Newton Community School District love homecoming week, it is important to note that our parade and celebration on Thursday night is just as much for our community. We will continue this tradition in order to show our entire school community that we love this town. I want to congratulate our 2022 Homecoming King and Queen -Brody Bauer and Kaitlyn Bloom.They are great representatives of our school.

I also want to congratulate the rest of the Homecoming Court.Being selected by their peers for this opportunity is quite an honor. And last, but certainly not least, I want to thank everyone for being a part of our Newton Community School District, where honesty, caring, positivity, fun, and support are part of our lives each and every day

Yours truly,

Tom Messinger, Superintendent
