Newton High School Alumni Association
Dear Membership

The Association Directors, polled by phone, has determined that the yearly reunion, June 2020 be cancelled due to the Covid-19 Virus that has gripped our Nation.

We must follow the recommendations of our governmental and health officials in their efforts to save lives by stopping the spread of this deadly disease.

The unknown spreading of the virus makes planning for the reunion impossible. We are sorry that this virus has caused this situation to be beyond our control.

Please continue to follow the recommendations of health officials that will save our lives. Continue to support our Association.
With our help, the school's staff provides the incentive for the very best education that can be offered.


Lamar Glover, President

Marvin Marley, Secretary/Treasurer
