District Elementary Parent Handbook

Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year!

Tod Wood

On behalf of our school staff and our Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA), I offer you a warm welcome, and hope that you find our school to be a wonderful home and safe haven for both you and your child! At Newcastle, we are committed to family partnerships that allow us, together, to encourage the intellectual, academic, social, and emotional growth and well-being of each and every student we serve.

Communication is key to any successful partnership, and I invite you to reach out to any member of our staff (particularly your child’s teacher!) with any questions or concerns that may arise. As you prepare for the year ahead, I would encourage you to subscribe not only to our building’s Weekly Bulletin, but to the Issaquah School District’s Weekly Bulletin as well. Both will be sources of helpful information and guidance to assist your family in experiencing the most successful year possible! 

Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you in the educational development of your child!

Partnering with you,

Dr. Tod Wood
