"These kids are living something we wouldn't wish for anybody," said Newton School Principal Melodie Goodwin. The elementary school has enrolled nearly 50 students in the past month.
"They need us and we're here for them," she said. "There's a lot of heart in our community."
Teachers and students have really stepped up, said Goodwin. At least one third-grade teacher assigns special jobs to students to help new arrivals, like showing them where the cafeteria or nurse's office is located.
And Goodwin, who herself moved 33 times in 20 years during her childhood, tells the new students that she knows what the experience is like. She gives them a lucky pencil and some snacks on their first day. Local donations have allowed the schools to connect some students with backpacks and supplies, she said.
The school can support 350 students, said Goodwin. Unused storage spaces are being cleaned and furnished for counseling and tutor spaces. The staff is changing one full-size room into a new classroom.
Parents have been concerned about rising class sizes, particularly in third grade where two classrooms have about 25 to 26 students. Goodwin said that retired teachers have taken on tutoring roles to assist teachers and break up classes into smaller groups.
She hopes to hire two new teachers, one for third grade and one for combined kindergarten and first grade, to lower class sizes. Parents will be informed and asked permission before their children change classrooms, she said.
Goodwin said that some of her students have already attended multiple schools in the past month. She said that many are shy, nervous and anxious about having to again enter a new environment.
