Committed to do all that we can in pursuit of excellence for all students.
For the 2018-2019 school year, Newaygo Elementary School (formerly Velma Matson building) will house approximately 370 students in Kindergarten, 1st, and 4th grades while the construction project continues. The district has been operating two elementary schools; the Vera Wilsie Elementary and Velma Matson Upper Elementary. The passage of a bond proposal allowed NPS to improve and consolidate elementary facilities into one building. In Februrary, 2018, the Newaygo Public Schools Board of Education took action to name the new/renovated building, Newaygo Elementary School. The new building has wings named after Vera Wilsie, Velma Matson, and Jack Long, and signage for this is inside the building.
