Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe that Winter Break is upon us and the students will soon be enjoying a nice vacation.  To help you prepare for the New Year, here are some reminders for the month of January.  

School reopens Wednesday, January 2nd.  

There is a Board of Education Reorganization Meeting at Schalick High School on Thursday, January 3rd at 7 pm.

Friday, January 4th is School Spirit Day and Reading Pep Rally Day.  Children are encouraged to wear their blue and white or Norma shirts on this day. Don’t forget to turn in your reading logs each month!

The Kindergarten students will be participating in the DIBELS screening on Monday, January 7th.  

There is a PTO meeting at Olivet School on Tuesday, January 8th at 6:30 p.m.  As always, all parents are invited and welcome to attend.

There will be a District Strategic Planning meeting at Schalick High School on Wednesday, January 9th beginning at 6:30 pm

The Computers For Education fundraiser begins on Monday, January 14th and ends on Friday, January 18th.  A letter explaining the fundraiser requirements will go home the week of January 7th.

School will be CLOSED on Monday, January 21st in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  School will reopen on Tuesday January 22nd at regular time.

February 1st is the mid point of the trimester.  

There will be early dismissal for teacher in-service on Thursday, January 31st.  There will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, February 1st for teacher in-service.  School will reopen on Monday, February 4th at regular time.

Just a reminder… Please be sure that children are wearing appropriate garments for the weather.  It is a good idea to send a sweatshirt to school with your child in case he or she gets cold during the day.  In addition, hats, mittens or gloves, winter coats, and scarves are all good cold weather items for students, especially those that must wait for a bus.  

Also, a reminder that parents should drop students off at the main entrances for school in the morning.  The morning is a very busy time at Norma School; we ask that parents please schedule appointments to speak with teachers instead of visiting the classrooms.

I’m excited that the second half of the year is upon us, and the children, I’m sure, are ready for some more fun after their holiday break.  As always, if you have any questions about events happening at school, please feel free to contact Norma School at any time.

Welcome to 2013!  Have a wonderful year!
