The Star Polisher By Leah Becks "I have a great job in the universe of occupations. What do I do? I'm a star polisher. It's a very important job. If you want to know how important, just go out at night and look at the stars twinkling and sparkling. You see, I am a teacher. The stars are the children in my class. My job is to take them in - in whatever shape they come - and shine them and buff them, and then send them out to take their places as bright little twinkling beacons in the sky. They come into my room in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they're bent, tarnished, dirty, crinkly and broken. Some stars are cuddly, soft, and sweet. Some stars are prickly and thorny. As I buff, polish, train, and teach my little stars, I tell them that the world cannot do without them. I tell them they can do anything they set their minds to do. I tell them they can be the brightest, shiniest stars in the sky, and that the world will be a better place because of them. Each night as I look at the sky, I'm reminded of my very important job and awesome responsibility. I go and get my soft buffing cloth and my little bottle of polish in preparation for tomorrow and for my class of little stars." Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Thank you to all of our wonderful teachers who continue to educate and inspire during this time.

Parents, we need your input as we begin to develop NCLUSD’s 2020-2021 Local Control and Accountability Plan(LCAP). The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities. The LCAP provides an opportunity for local educational agencies (LEAs) to share their stories of how, what, and why programs and services are selected to meet their local needs. We value your input so please complete the LCAP Parent Survey by March 6th.

At this time, the health risk to the general public in California from novel coronavirus remains low. As with any virus, especially during the flu season, there are a number of steps you can take to protect your health and those around you. The Newman-Crows Landing Unified School District is advising parents, as we always do, to not send your child to school if they are sick.
Great news, with power fully restored in Newman we are expecting the school day to run as scheduled. All USDA guidelines are being followed and necessary precautions are being taken to ensure food safety for our students and staff following the power outage.
The power is back on in Newman and all schools are open. We are looking forward to seeing all of our students for a great Monday!
It appears that Newman could be without power until 3:30 pm tomorrow (2/10/2020). We will still open every school tomorrow as a safe place for children to be. There will be a limited food service tomorrow, no lights, no internet, but a lot of time to read books and build relationships!
