All months have holidays, unique and wacky days to celebrate. While January is known for its Federal Holiday of the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., there are wacky days such as Measure Your Feet Day (Jan. 23rd) or Squirrel Appreciation Day (Jan. 21st). January is also the month of National Hobby Month, which is a fitting time to celebrate Newton-Conover City Schools 2017-18 Innovative Grant winners!!! Innovative Grants are available yearly to all teachers, students, and non-certified staff. Individual ideas may be funded up to $1000, and groups (two or more people) may be funded up to $1500. Each day in January, a grant recipient and their project will be highlighted, showcasing an original idea and their anticipated impact on student learning! The 2018-19 grant period will open from June to September 2018.
