2020 - 2021 Events
In light of the challenges of the current school year due to COVID-19, the Newcastle PTC is awaiting guidance on what type of school events may be allowable. If and when any events are planned information will be made available both on this website and in the Weekly Knight's Herald email sent by the school administration.
The Annual Obstacle Fun Run
The Fun Run is PTC’s main fundraising event of the year. It is not only lucrative, but community building within our school as it involves the participation of the entire student body. Leading up to the Fun Run students procure sponsorships from friends, family, and businesses for their participation in an Obstacle Course. Held on lower campus during the school day, class by class students run the course that has included inflatables, tires, tubes, and more. The students as well as spectators have a blast while raising funds and building school community! The 2019 Fun Run was held on October 18th. The event raised over $32,000.00!
