Rent the Spirit Rock!
7th grade & 8th graders are doing research & preparing presentations about Sustainable Development in different countries in Mr. Saverino's World Studies class @participate. They share their ideas & use thinking routines to make thinking visible. #unititing our world
The first recipient for this year’s “Da Bomb” is Cristian Saverino and was presented by Mr. Cannon! I am giving Mr. Saverino the first “Da Bomb” this year for several reasons. Since joining our team at N-CMS, Mr. Saverino has worked hard to build relationships with staff and students. He is very positive with his interactions with students and staff. He had volunteered on several occasions to cover classes when substitutes weren’t available. He is very passionate about his job. He radiates enthusiasm for teaching and learning. Thank you for all your hard work thus far this school year! I appreciate your effort. You are “DA BOMB!” Mr. Saverino will pick the next recipient!
Today, the 6th graders demonstrated how heat affects the motion of molecules in a substance by dropping food coloring into cold and hot water. They collected their data during the activity and made comparisons. #togetherasone
Happy Friday, Red Devil Family! Here are your announcements for the week of September 6 through September 10, 2021. Due to the Labor Day Holiday, there is no school for students and staff on Monday, September 6. At the September 3, 2021, Special Called Meeting, the Newton-Conover City Schools Board of Education voted 6-0 to require staff, students, and visitors to wear face coverings while indoors on school campuses beginning Tuesday, September 7, 2021 (provided they do not meet one of the criteria for exceptions). All students are required to wear face coverings while on a school bus. Progress Reports will go home at the end of this week. Parents, please monitor and review your child's progress regularly to ensure they are not falling behind. Students interested in staying after school for our MakerSpace challenges can continue to submit permission forms and join in the fun. Meetings are Tuesdays after school until 4 pm. A reminder that school starts at 7:40 am. Students should be in the building and in their homeroom classroom by 7:40. We will begin documenting tardies this week for students arriving on campus after 7:40 am. That is all for our weekly announcements. Have a wonderful weekend.
Hello Red Devil Family! Here are your announcements for the week of August 30-September 3, 2021. We want to thank all our parents and students for an excellent first week of school.

Good evening Red Devil Family! Here are your weekly announcements. Welcome Back Red Devils! We have missed our rising 7th and 8th graders and we want to welcome our 6th graders.

Students should plan to be at their bus stops 10 to 15 minutes early for the first few days of school. Students will also get home later in the afternoon due to bus drivers learning their routes.
