The Heart of A Teacher

"Once a teacher, always a teacher" quotes Principal, Debbie Trogdon as she engages with students from Mrs. Danette Guthrie's class as they program and demonstrate their skills of matrix animation on Sphero Bolts. "We make learning happen even with mask and social distancing as our students benefit from these experiences. Our Newport Middle teachers are engineering learning in ways not thought possible even five months ago".  


Setting A Standard of Excellence in the Eagle's Nest

Mrs Hill provides virtual students opportunity to “tune” into her Shakespeare lesson. We make learning happen at NMS! #EagleStrong #eaglepride #NMSEAGLES #middlenewport

Young Author Contest

The Crystal Coast Reading Council is excited to present the 2020 Young Authors Contest!  The theme this year is Let Your Light Shine, which is so appropriate because of Dr. Jackson's theme in his videos for CCPS.  Young authors are encouraged to write about self pride, finding the positive during challenging times, sharing talents with others, being a positive influence, showing kindness or creating change to better our world.  Authors may write prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction.  There will also be a cover design contest for anyone interested in creating a cover design for the publication.

This slideshow (and the links within it) will give you all the guidelines you need to help your students participate.  Members of the Crystal Coast Reading Council can submit entries for writing or art.
