New This Year!
MakerBot Replicator Mini
Newell-Fonda Community School District adds a second 3d printer to our inventory. The MakerBot Replicator Mini has a build volume of about 4 cubic inches and is easily transported between classrooms!
PolyCom: Video Conferencing
This year we have upgraded our distance learning classroom from the old-fashioned ICN room to the new state of the art Polycom: Video Conferencing room!
Newell-Fonda Community School serves approximately 470 learners and has outstanding support from the communities of Fonda, Newell, and Varina. The Newell-Fonda district is committed to continually improving as evidenced by a 2009 addition, a 2011 weight room, and the passage of a $7,500,000 bond to include 13 classrooms, media center, practice gymnasium, and shop.
Newell-Fonda offers a rich tradition of excellence in extra curricular offerings including jazz band, speech, choir, and many athletic programs. Our staff is dedicated to the idea that no student should ever have to choose between activities and works to make all experiences these activities offer available to every student.
Innovators in Education
Our administration and staff are dedicated to providing our learners with the most positive and comprehensive school experience possible. In 2007, the district was one of the first schools in Iowa to implement a 1:1 laptop program for all 9-12 students. In 2009, the district added grades 5-8 to the 1:1 program, and in 2012, grades PK-4 were given carts to provide further access to technology.
The high school offers over 90 concurrent enrollment courses, and has recently allied with Iowa Central Community College to provide our learners access to the most up-to-date information on college credits in order make the most informed decisions possible concerning college.
