Share the #nccslove

nccsloveNewton-Conover is such a special place for staff and students.  The energy, family atmosphere, relationships, and culture all create a synergy that makes NCCS an amazing place!  So, Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to share photos that demonstrate a day in the life of NCCS employees and students.

How to Contribute:  Please share your candid photos that capture moments representing your unscripted daily lives in NCCS.  Use the Twitter #nccslove hashtag or post to the Newton-Conover City Schools’ Facebook page to share photos on February 13.

If you do not have a Twitter or Facebook account, send your pics to Cindy Geddes, Heather Mullins, James Frye, Tammy Brown, Betsy Rosenbalm, or Brian Smith.  We will compile all of the #nccslove photos in an article on The Compass for all to see!

  • Include a caption that tells where the photo was taken and describes what’s happening.
  • Be sure submitted photographs conform to school media policies regarding publication of identifiable students.
  • One way to include students who do not have photograph permission is put them behind the lens to take your #nccslove photos.

Here are some examples of unscripted moments for inspiration!  What you will notice is that they aren’t staged.  These are just snippets and moments in real-time in real schools.  What do you see to share that demonstrates our #nccslove?  Share those moments on February 13.
