Hail, Hail for Ole Newton High!

Hail, Hail for ole Newton High! Hail, Hail for ole Newton High!
We get our lessons awfully good And say that weve done the best we could.
We make some Ds but we never fail. Makes us want to chew on our nails
Say again well try and try For the glory of Newton High!

Note: Graduation from Newton High School is NOT a Membership requirement. If you attended and would have graduated with any particular class, you should consider yourself part of that class and a member of the Alumni Association.

We strongly urge each class to plan a private reunion each year on Friday before or Saturday following the Annual School Reunion. Time is fleeting as we loose members every year to death. (We have lost 148 members in death since 2000).
