Linda Sutton, Principal of the Newport Middle High School announced at the Thursday night school board meeting that the school is starting a Drama Club. Plans are for the school to present two plays this year, the first play by the High School and the second for the Middle and High School combined. The Drama Club is part of the new gifted and talent program established last year by school board Vice Chairman Gordon B. Flint Jr. In addition to the Drama club, the Middle School Math Team is expanding to include students from Towle Elementary who are proficient in math.
