A Message from the Principal

Welcome students, family, and friends to the West Newton Elementary School. We are a small school with a lot of heart. As you enter the building, you get a sense of family. And that's what we are, a family. We are committed to the children giving them the best education possible so that they can be global competitors.

Our highly trained staff provides a safe and caring environment while having high expectations for all of our students. We believe in discovery and curiosity as a basis for learning. We also believe that it takes a village to raise a child. The students here will be successful if everyone is involved with the child's education. With the support of the community and family, there will be no limits on what our children could do. 

-Mr. Hoffman

Our Team








If you wish to put money into your child's school lunch account, please log onto schoolcafe.com.  You will need to know your child's school ID#.  You may also send the money in with your child and the cafeteria ladies will add it in to your child's account.



Any new student(s) to the West Newton Elementary School must first register at our Central Registration which is located at the Yough Senior High School, 919 Lowber Rd, Herminie, PA.  You may call Deb W., our Central Registrar at 724-446-7272, ext. 1000 for more information.  More information, along with the paperwork needed, can be found on the District Home Page.



Our school currently uses the Hall Pass system.  This requires any visitor, parent or guardian who may be picking up a student to have their driver's license scanned.  This system checks to see if anyone entering our building is a Megan's Law offender.  There are no exceptions to this requirement.



We ask that you keep the office aware of any changes that may have occurred in addresses, phone numbers or emergency contacts so that we can keep our records current.  This information is VITAL in case of any emergencies or for use in our District All-Call System.
