Students and teachers at South Newton Elementary will move to the current Thornton Elementary building at the end of the school year. The move is planned as Newton-Conover City Schools completes a series of school construction and renovations project.
“We’ll do that for the first half of the 2013-14 school year,” said NCCS Superintendent Barry Redmond. “They will be at the old Thornton building for the first half of the year. That is something we were hoping to avoid, but it looks like we will have to get them off the South Newton campus so we can tear down the old buildings and get the parking lots right.”
