Student email addresses are the NCSS username (last name, first initial, middle initial, MMDD of birth) @newtonstudents.org (ex: mcgovernle1208@newtonstudents.org). Passwords are whatever the student has set his/her password to be. Want more? Students can download Microsoft Office onto their computers, phones, and tablets for FREE. 5 free downloads per student.
