Virtual tour explores new middle school
Newton-Conover's new middle school opens in August, but area students can check out their learning environment any time they want — on the Internet.
Newton-Conover City Schools (NCCS) leaders posted a video to the system's Facebook page this week that introduces students to their new school off County Home Road.
"We wanted to make sure our students, especially fifth-graders coming over, felt comfortable, especially with the size of the new building," said NCCS Superintendent Dr. Barry Redmond. "We wanted to ease their apprehension and fears of coming over to this big, wonderful new place."
