Bible school to host enrollment

The Newton Weekday Bible School will enroll students who wish to attend the program during the school year during the Aug. 16 "Meet Your Teacher/Back to School Night" at each Newton USD 373 elementary school. 

A parent's permission and contact information must be obtained for a student to be enrolled and escorted to and from the church and school building. There will be a table and volunteer who will answer questions and help parents with enrollments for children during the meet the teacher nights. 

Churches and volunteers have supported the Newton Weekday Bible School during release times since 1924. Volunteers come from a variety of Bible believing churches. Each volunteer is required to go through an application process, submit references and pass a legal background check. 

Bible school will take place for all elementary school students in grades one through five, and for fifth and sixth graders at Santa Fe 5/6th center. Once each week during students' lunch and recess periods, students take their lunch to a nearby church for age appropriate Bible lessons, scripture and music. They return to the school to finish their school day.
