Message from the Principal - September


Dear Parents/Guardians,

This is it!!  We are ready for the start of the school year!  For those who attended our Norma Open House today, thank you!  We had 270 attendees!!!  Wow! What an awesome way to start the school year!  We truly appreciate you taking the time to hear the presentation and to meet with our staff.  I want to give special thanks to our Norma staff from our teaching crew, aides, CST, custodial crew and secretary; it was definitely a team effort!  Special thanks to our Superintendent, Dr. Scott Hoopes and Stefanie Fox-Manno, our Chief Academic Officer, for attending the event at Norma.  Lastly, thanks to all who took time out of their schedule to attend the “Meet and Greet the new Principal” event.  It was a great opportunity to meet you and your children as well. 

Looking ahead . . .

  • September 4, 2019 – Tomorrow is our first day of school!  Please note that there will be an early dismissal day at 11:30 AM on the first day of school.  For access to our district calendar, please visit our website at http://norma.pittsgrove.net/
  • September 6, 2019 – School colors are blue and white.  Our mascot is a cub. We encourage our students to identify with these symbols as a representation of our school PRIDE and spirit.  The first Friday of each month is School Spirit Day.  We wear these colors with pride. J  The Norma Elementary School Spirit Wear flyer was in the summer packet.  Special thanks to PTO for organizing this fundraiser!  The sale will run from August 19, 2019 – September 27, 2019.
  • September 11, 2019 Norma Elementary School will hold its annual Back-to-School Night on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 6:00 P.M.  Schools are the hub of our communities and this event provides time for parents to visit our school, meet your child’s teacher, and learn a little bit more about the many wonderful programs, activities, and learning experiences planned for your child this school year.  We will meet first in the Multipurpose Room for a general meeting before going to the classrooms.  Please note that the classrooms will not be available until after the presentation in the Multipurpose roomDue to the limited parking area at Norma Preschool, we are asking that you follow the parking attendant/security personnel instructions that were in the summer mailing packet.  We also ask parents not to bring children (both student and siblings) if at all possible.  This evening is an opportunity for parents to become acquainted with the teacher (s), learn about our various programs and become active members of the school community. 
  • September 13, 2019 – All forms that were sent in the summer mailing packet that required signature are due on this day.  Also, please be sure that you list emergency contact information other than the parent/guardian.  Just a reminder that the Express Pickup form is only for those parents/guardians that will be dropping off/picking up their child on a daily bases. 
  • September 30, 2019 – It is our individual Picture Day! In the first day packet, you will find the order form.  As for our Private Providers Building Blocks and Firm Foundations, their organization will be contacting you in reference to their Picture dates.

If you child needs to be administered medication at school, please contact our school nurse, Lori Patch a lpatch@pittsgrove.net or you may give her a call at (856) 358-6904 at ext. 4707.

Norma Elementary School Family Handbook – Although the handbook is available on our website, a hardcopy of the handbook will be located in the students first day folder.  

As mentioned previously, because we strive to always ensure the safety of our students, the section “Message from the Principal” on our school’s website will only list basic information.  However, the monthly messages that I will send to you via email will include more detailed information regarding key events/activities.  Also, we will note on the website that accommodations will be made for those who do not have access to email.

Please feel to give me a call or send me an email if you have any questions, concerns, or simply to say hello! J I look forward to the start of the school year! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Priscilla Ocasio-Jiménez

Principal
