This year, N-CCS has started an initiative in which staff members nominate a team who they feel is deserving of being named Team of the Month. With special thanks to our sponsor Prodigy Voice and Data, this team will be awarded with district recognition and a $100 stipend. Throughout the month, teams are nominated through a Google form, and a committee votes on the winner of the Team of the Month on or around the 15th of each month. In March, the honorees that were chosen by a landslide were the members of the N-CCS Maintenance Team!
The Newton-Conover City Schools Maintenance Team is composed of six team members who work tirelessly at all hours of the day and night to ensure that we all have a safe and habitable environment for learning. Student learning would certainly be impacted without the efforts of these gentlemen! The Team Members are:
Among the many accolades that they all received, one individual said “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these men from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. When we hear no school most of us turn the alarm clock off, roll over, fall back asleep and later enjoy a snow day at home with our family. Our maintenance staff reports to work to shovel sidewalks, put out ice melt and begin clearing parking lots to ensure the safety of our students and staff.”
Another note shared that “Too often these guys only hear complaints. I would love to be able to say that our entire system appreciates them and recognizes them as our Team of the Month.”
On behalf of N-CCS, we congratulate the Newton-Conover City Schools Maintenance Team on a job well done! We appreciate all of you and hope that you know how fortunate we are to have you all keeping us in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
