Mark your calendars and think TECH! On October 7, we will host our third annual Digital Days at Newton-Conover Middle School. Digital Days is the required technology training for all NCCS staff. Each staff member will select at least two classes to attend. Remember, everyone is required to take four technology training sessions this school year. Two of your sessions will be selected from Digital Days classes, and each school will conduct two required trainings during the 2013-14 school year.
Each class is two hours in length, with the first hour being devoted to instruction and the second for application. This year we have a strong focus on the application of these instructional technology tools and skills.
One new feature of our Digital Days this year is an opportunity to participate in a Health Screening. The Newton-Conover City Schools SHAC (Schools Health Advisory Council) has been working hard the past year to develop opportunities for better health in our district for both students and our employees. One of the initiatives planned for this year is a Health Screen for all employees as a starting point to better health. We have coordinated this on the same day as the Digital Days for teachers. Please open the Health Screening tab above and you will be able to see the tests that Frye Regional Medical Center will have available for any and all on Oct. 7 at the N-C Middle School in the Cafeteria. Register first for your Digital Days sessions and then call to schedule an appointment for your health screens.
