NCCS Introduces Employee of the Month Program

appleWe are fortunate to work in an amazing district with a true family atmosphere.  Whether you are a teacher, a leader, an administrative assistant, a bus driver, a custodian, a director, a cafeteria worker, a mentor/coach, or a principal, you are an important part of the Newton-Conover family.  Every day, each of you influences and positively affects the lives of our students.  Although school and district leaders try to acknowledge all that you do for students, there are countless acts of exemplary service, caring, and teamwork that may not come to our attention.

Employee of the Month is your opportunity to recognize your colleagues for things they do behind the scenes each month.   To nominate a colleague for NCCS Employee of the Month,  just take a moment to complete this short form prior to the 15th of each month.  Employees selected for this award will receive $100, gain recognition in The NCCS Compass, receive recognition at a school board meeting, and enjoy a banquet celebration at the end of the school year.
