Abstract: We propose an algebraic definition of the space of $\ell$-new mod-$p$ modular forms for $\Gamma _0(N\ell )$ in the case that $\ell$ is prime to $N$, which naturally generalizes to a notion of newforms modulo $p$ in squarefree level. We use this notion of newforms to interpret the Hecke algebras on the graded pieces of the space of mod-$2$ level-$3$ modular forms described by Paul Monsky. Along the way, we describe a renormalized version of the Atkin-Lehner involution: no longer an involution, it is an automorphism of the algebra of modular forms, even in characteristic $p$.
