Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newport District Curriculum
The core curriculum focuses on Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Languages. Each subject is divided into its main topics and students develop a deeper knowledge of these topics each year. For instance, in Language Arts the writing curriculum introduces students to the basics of writing sentences and paragraphs during elementary school but then continues to deepen these skills so that students are able to write more complex analytic, informational or persuasive essays later. They learn how to brainstorm and organize ideas, how to edit and revise work, and how to work towards a final draft of an essay.
In regards to 21st century learning, Newport makes every effort to incorporate technology into the curriculum. The school works with students and parents in ensuring that they use the Internet safely and prevent issues such as cyberbullying and hacking. Newport High School has a technology club whose members take various courses worth credits. Additionally, the high school offers a wide variety of courses to meet students’ interests.

Keeping Informed: Recent Newport Educational News
- Newport High School Goes “Pink” - Newport High School spent an entire month raising money and awareness from the district and community for breast cancer. The cheerleading team held a “pink out” during a football game, encouraging spectators to wear pink. The football players and band members chipped in by adorning pink socks and ties, respectively. The cheerleaders had raised $1,600 up to that point, including donations from a community gift shop.
- Newport Has Lunch on the Menu - Newport is one of several districts in northeast Arkansas to work with the region’s School Nutrition Consortium to ensure that students are receiving their nutritional needs and that cafeteria menus comply with federal mandates. One thing food directors have to do is make sure there is a red orange vegetable, such as squash or sweet potatoes, on each child’s tray. By 2014-15, all breads must be of the whole grain variety. The alliance was originally formed to find a way to reduce the costs of school lunches.
- Newport Students Gain Valuable Volunteering Experience - Newport teenagers have the opportunity to serve as junior volunteers at a local hospital during the summer months. Students can learn about medical professions they may be interested in and add to their resume, but it is not required that they have any medical knowledge to become involved. During the program, students accrue at least 18 service hours. A former junior volunteer now manages a trauma center in Tennessee.

Chalk Talk: Teaching Students How to Study
The act of studying is not always considered to be a skill, but is should be. It does not come naturally to everyone, and some students may be clueless as to how to approach their studying. However, it is critical that students recognize what studying methods work best for them. By the upper-elementary grades, students are mostly being assessed with the use of traditional written tests, and as they move from grade to grade and are provided with fewer study guides, they will have to be more independent in this regard. It is a good idea to offer students lessons in study skills; perhaps schools could hold extra classes or teachers could embed them in their instruction. Study guides are very helpful, but they are not always given in the upper grades, so show them how to create their own based on their textbooks and notes. Teach them how to highlight main ideas from their notebooks. Flashcards are usually very popular and successful; have the children make them, because writing down information can help them to remember it. Buddy-studying can be beneficial because students can quiz one another, but make sure that friends are actually studying!
