KEEPING STUDENTS’ MINDS ACTIVE.

In between the rigorous class lessons and milestone achievements in therapies, New Way offers a diverse range of athletic teams, clubs, service learning opportunities, and specialized activities. Each activity invites a rich experience, giving our students more ways to practice:

    • Positively collaborating with others
    • Executive functioning skills
    • Coordination 
    • Problem solving skills
    • Increased self-esteem
    • Uplifting others through their successes
    • Self discipline, motivation, and leadership skills

Spirit Assemblies

For the 2021-2022 school year, our monthly spirit assemblies allow each student to enjoy being a bulldog with additional safety measures in place. Lower School students have assemblies on the first Friday of each month, and Upper School students have assemblies on the second Friday of each month. With more space to spread out in the gym and age-appropriate activities, each level can experience the best part of being a Bulldog without the overwhelm that all-school events can sometimes bring.

After School Care

For the convenience of our families, the Bulldog After Care Program (BAC) is available for students in grades K through 8th, Monday through Friday, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and on Wednesdays from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The fee for this program is billed through the TADS account. Every week our program team has amazing activities planned to keep the students of all ages engaged. Snacks are provided, as well as time for homework and some fresh air! 

Bulldog After School Clubs

Bulldog After School Clubs offer students an array of activities to get involved in. More than 80% of our students are engaged in our after school programs. This involvement helps build our students’ specific interests, allowing them to make new friends and reinforce progress made in class.

    • All-school musical

I was breathless when she stood at the center of the gymnasium, microphone in hand, and confidently and comfortably addressed the bleachers full of parents and students.
