Eastside/NCCA STEM Institute Student Named National Finalist in 2017 FFA Agricultural Proficiency Awards


A solution to Colony Collapse Disorder, which is wiping out tons of honeybee colonies around the world, may be right around the corner thanks to research conducted by Dos Harper, a senior at Eastside High School and the NCCA STEM Institute. Colony Collapse Disorder occurs when the majority of worker bees in a colony disappear and leave behind a queen, plenty of food and a few nurse bees to care for the remaining immature bees and the queen. Harper’s two-year research project on the subject recently earned praise from the National FFA Organization, which named him a national finalist in the 2017 Agricultural Proficiency Awards in the Agriscience Research-Animal Systems category. Harper is one of only four students chosen to compete for this award at the national finals to be held this October at the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis.

NCSS to Delay Dismissal on August 21 for Solar Eclipse

The Newton County School System will delay dismissal by 45 minutes on Monday, August 21, 2017 due to the expected solar eclipse, and its impact on the area. While an eclipse provides a wonderful educational moment it can also be dangerous if one looks directly at the sun. Erring on the side of caution, the district will delay dismissal and release students, for this day only, at the following times:
  • Elementary Schools & Newton County Theme School – 2:55 PM
  • Middle Schools – 5:00 PM
  • High Schools – 4:00 PM
