Every Tuesday the Navy JROTC from Newton-Conover High School visits North Newton Kid Connection or Newton-Conover Middle School to practice their leadership skills.
At North Newton, the after-school elementary students of the Kid Connection program look forward to the JROTC students arrival, watching formation and listening intently to the instructions from the high school students for activities, games, and sports.
The elementary students at Kid Connection honor their time with the JROTC students as they play dodgeball, jail break and other games, broken into multi-age group teams. Student led activities, building relationships, leadership skills, and role models. They are Newton-Conover.
