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, 2014.  


School reopens Monday, January 6th.  


There is a Board of Education Meeting at Schalick High School on Thursday, January 9th at 6:30 pm.


Friday, January 10th 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 Thursday, January 9th.  


There is a PTO meeting at Olivet School on Tuesday, January 14th at 6:30 p.m.  As always, all parents are invited and welcome to attend.


The Computers For Education fundraiser begins on Monday, January 13th and ends on Friday, January 17th.  A letter explaining the fundraiser requirements will go home the week of January 6th.


School will be CLOSED on Monday, January 20th in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  School will reopen on Tuesday January 21st at regular time.


There are Board of Education meetings at the Schalick High School Media Center on Thursday, January 23rd and Monday, January 27th both beginning at 6:30 p.m.  All are welcome to attend.


There will be early dismissal for teacher in-service on Thursday, January 30th.  There will be NO SCHOOL on Friday, January 31st for teacher in-service.  School will reopen on Monday, February 3rd 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. Please do NOT walk your child to the classroom if you drop them off in the morning.  Thank you for understanding the need to maintain appropriate security measures.


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 2014!  Have a wonderful year!


Sincerely,






Dr. Georgette Meister

Assistant Principal
