Newton-Conover’s District Commercial is Here (and Going to the Movies!)

N-CCS Office of PR Banner

In Newton-Conover City Schools, there’s a reason we hold the highest graduation rate in North Carolina’s history.  Put simply?  We believe in giving every student choices…and we are sharing our story with the greater community!

As a part of sharing our story, following months of filming, editing and producing, we are excited to share with you the final edition of our Newton-Conover Schools District Commercial!  Please click here or above to view, and feel free to share the Commercial with your friends, families, and coworkers across all social media!

Want to see your school on the big screen?  This commercial is slated to begin running before every movie shown in the Carmike Cinemas of Hickory this Friday, May 13, continuing for 16 weeks, and ending on September 2.  It will play just before the regular movie commercials begin — at the end of the “pre-show.”  We are very excited about what potential this Mass-Marketing Campaign holds for Newton-Conover City Schools!
