Dear Parents,

I hope that you all enjoyed a restful Thanksgiving break!  It’s hard to believe that December is here already and the holidays are upon us.  Below are some dates and reminders for the very busy month of December.

The PTO Book Fair will be held the week of December 3rd through the 7th.  A schedule has already been sent home so be sure to check and see when your child is scheduled to go.  There will also be a Family Night at the Book Fair on Wednesday, December 5th beginning at 6:30 – 8:30.  We would love to see you there!

There will be Early Dismissal December 5th – 7th for Parent Teacher Conferences.  Please be sure to check the half-day schedule.  If you are in need of a new schedule, please contact the office.  Anyone in need of scheduling an appointment should call or email their child’s teacher.

Friday, December 7th is School Spirit Day.  Students are encouraged to show their school spirit by wearing Norma shirts or blue and white.

There will be a PTO meeting at Olivet School on Tuesday, December 11th beginning at 6:30 p.m.  All parents are encouraged and welcome to attend.

Our pre-school classrooms will be having their annual Gingerbread House activity on December 13th.  Please inquire with your child’s teacher for more information on donations and attending.

There will be a Board of Education Meeting on Thursday, December 13th at 6:30 pm

There will be a half-day on December 14th for staff professional development. 

The Board of Education meeting will be held on Thursday, December 13th at 7 p.m. in the Schalick High School Media Center.

There will be an Early Dismissal on Friday, December 21st.  Be sure to check the half-day schedule.

More information will be coming home from your child’s teacher regarding holiday festivities.  Keep an eye on your child’s folder to find out what’s happening!

School will be CLOSED for Winter Recess from December 21st through January 1st.  School will reopen on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013.

A reminder to parents… Since the weather is getting cold, we ask you to please send your child to school with coats, hats, and gloves.  We have had students come to school with no coat or wearing only sweatshirts.  If the weather is permissible, the children do go outside and play and proper attire is crucial.  If your child does not have the proper outerwear he or she may not be permitted to participate in outdoor recess.  We also ask that you make sure to label ALL garments since the children often leave things on the bus or drop them in the halls on the way to their classrooms.  Labeling the items will help us identify the owners in a timely manner.

The Norma School staff would like to wish you all a blessed holiday season and a very Happy New Year.  Enjoy a restful break with family and friends and we will see you in 2013!
