What wonderful accomplishments for these talented young artists!
The Washington Post released America's Most Challenging HSs rankings. Our own Discovery High ranked #30 in NC http://wapo.st/1elZdhXAmerica's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that's a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. The index score is the number of college-level tests given at a school in the previous calendar year divided by the number of graduates that year. Also noted are the percentage of students who come from families that qualify for lunch subsidies (Subs. lunch) and the percentage of graduates who passed at least one college-level test during their high school career, called equity and excellence, (E&E).
You are proud of our students, they are proud of their successes, and we are ALL proud to be Newton-Conover!
We Choose Public Schools!
Congratulations to Newton-Conover High School student, Eena See. Eena participated in the Hickory Junior Women's Club Arts Festival in the Painting - Computer Graphics category. Eena placed first in the local competition, first in the district competition, and second in the state competition.
From March 10 through , school-based licensed educators in all 115 North Carolina school districts and charter schools will have an opportunity to share their views regarding their working conditions on the 7th biennial statewide NC Teacher Working Conditions (TWC) Survey. The NC TWC Survey is designed to gather a variety of information from teachers, counselors, principals and other administrators about topics such as the adequacy of school facilities and resources, time, empowerment, school leadership, community support, student conduct, professional development, mentoring and induction services, and student learning. State Superintendent June Atkinson and NCAE leaders launched the survey on March 10, 2014 at AB Combs Leadership Magnet Elementary School in Raleigh. For more information, visit www.ncpublicschools.org and select the appropriate link under “News.”
Our State Superintendent, June Atkinson has challenged each of us to participate in the Give Five Read Five program.
Reading at least five books over the summer can help students maintain reading skills while they are away from the classroom.
So GIVE FIVE books to help students READ FIVE books. Your donation will allow us to provide each child with books to read in the summer.
Donate five new or gently-used books for K-5 students today.
Books can be dropped off at your local elementary school or central office today.
