Principal's Post 

Dear Patriot Nation Families,


I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer. I also hope you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year. I am so delighted that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your positive energy and dedication to excellence in education, and I look forward to working with you and your children.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff have been planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials and updating the student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility and our building looks amazing. And, our much-appreciated EN UNITED is gearing up to welcome families, provide volunteer opportunities, and offer other exciting events and programs to the East Newton students.  We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goal of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

Important Information

You can begin dropping students off at 7:30 am.  Class Instruction begins at 8:00 am and we dismiss at 3:30 pm with car riders being dismissed around 3:37 pm.  Once again, we ask that you get in the car rider line to pick your child up. We will not allow students to walk across the parking lot, even with a parent, until all cars are through the parent pick-up line. This is for the safety of all children and parents. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello if you are in the area. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.

As always, it’s a great day to be a PATRIOT!

Warmest Regards,

Jamie Medlin
Triway Principal
