It’s hard to believe that the 2014-2015 school year is about to begin! Already, new teachers have reported for duty. They are participating in three days of pre-service work this week by attending our New Teacher Induction and Orientation program activities. Not only will they participate in professional development, but they will also learn all about Newton County Schools.
One of the things we are most proud of in Newton County Schools, is the support we receive from our Partners in Education. This year, as in previous years, we put out a call to our Partners in Education requesting door prizes for our new teachers. And, just like in previous years, our Partners in Education delivered. We had beautiful gift bags, goody bags filled with candy, tote bags, and even gift cards ranging from $25 to $100! Our local businesses and organizations truly support the students and employees of Newton County Schools.
Although we announce the name of each business or organization that donates a door prize at the time of the drawing so that our local community is also aware of their commitment, I’d like to publicly thank the following school Partners in Education for donating door prizes for our new teachers: Game Time; Bank of North Georgia; Newton Medical Center; Community & Southern Bank; Macedonia Baptist Church; Walmart (Industrial Blvd); Starrsville United Methodist Church; Troy University; Georgia Association of Educators; and Georgia United Credit Union. Thank you SO MUCH for supporting our schools! And thank you to all of our Partners in Education who continually support our students and schools throughout the school year. Our community is blessed with businesses, organizations, churches and civic groups that truly care about the children and employees of Newton County Schools. We look forward to working with all of them during the course of the 2014-2015 school year!
