Newmark Education’s Community Connections PIN program provides individual recognition for achievement by Newmark students who demonstrate personal and social growth by participating in a personally meaningful community-based experience.
Community-based experiences can include the following categories:
How it works:
Students earn individual PINs that represent their achievement. Students who earn PINs receive a lanyard on which to keep their PINs and to wear to display their achievements. View Criteria.
Nomination of a singular activity worthy of achievement must be made by parent, teacher or member of the PIN Committee. The community leader or coach of the event will be asked (by the student) to complete a Community Connection Form
to verify the student’s achievement.
