Seed Survivor


Seed Survivor is a free curriculum-based program that teaches elementary children about plants and the importance of agriculture. Multiple displays travel across North America year-round. Last year Seed Survivor planted over 110,000 sunflower seeds with participants and visited 16 states and provinces. Seed Survivor was designed to teach youth that plants need water, light, healthy soil, and nutrients to survive. South Newton 3rd and 4th grade students participated in this awesome interactive exhibit.

Leader in Me
The Leader in Me is a school-wide model based on Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Happy Kids. This model promotes a school culture built on leadership and community. The goal is to create a learning environment focused on the whole individual and his or her place in the classroom and in the community at large.

South Newton is just beginning the first year of implementation. Faculty and staff attended four intensive days of training during the summer of 2014 in preparation for school-wide deployment in the 2014-2015 school year. Everyone is eager to model and to teach the 7 Habits to each and every child in our school family! Stay tuned on our progress by clicking on the page link on the left.
