Dear Parents,

 

Welcome Back!!!!  It’s very hard to believe that the summer is over and we have begun the school year already.  Looking forward, I am excited for the upcoming year and all that is in store for our students.  

 

Here is an overview of important dates to remember in September for Norma School:

 

All student information sheets are due back to the office no later than Monday, September 9th.  It is very important that we have these sheets back as soon as possible so that we have current emergency contact information.  Information that needs to be filled out and returned is located on the right side of your child’s folder.  Please fill it out and return it as soon as possible.

 

We will celebrate our first School Spirit Day on Friday, September 13th! This is a practice for our real PTO School Spirit “class competitions.” If your child has a Norma shirt already, please have them wear it to school.  If not, please wear our school colors, blue and white, to show your spirit.  

 

There is a Board of Education work session meeting at 6:30p.m. on Thursday, September 19th; a voting session meeting will be held at 6:30 pm on Monday, September 23rd.  Meetings are held in the Schalick Media Center.  Parents and community members are welcome to attend.

 

The Kindergarten students will participate in the DIBELS screening on Friday, September 20th.

 

Norma Student Picture Day will be held Monday, September 23rd.  Be sure to bring a nice smile to school on that day.

 

Back to School Night will be held for all kindergarten and pre-school students on Thursday, September 26that 7pm.  Parents are encouraged to attend this special evening to meet their child’s teacher and see the classroom.  If at all possible, please do not bring students to this special parent event.

 

There will be an early dismissal for all students on Friday, September 27th for a staff in-service.  Please be sure to consult the early dismissal schedule for times.

 

Just a reminder… The weather is very nice and our students play outside regularly.  We encourage parents to dress children in appropriate clothing.  Shorts are permitted and sneakers are recommended for all outside play.  While sandals, flip-flops, heelys, and crocs are fun to wear, they can be hazardous on the playground and while walking in the halls and on stairs and can cause injuries.  In addition, fancy dress clothing, dress shoes, and items with long strings (such as hoodies) can also be dangerous on playground equipment.   Please refrain, whenever possible, from sending students to school wearing these items.  We strive to keep the children safe on the playground equipment and in the building at all times and this will help greatly. If you have any questions, you can reference our dress code in the school handbook or call Norma School.  Thank you so much for your attention to this important matter!

 

Should you have any questions regarding the start of school year, please do not hesitate to contact Norma School at 358-6904.  

 

We are looking forward to a fun school year at Norma School!  

 

Fondly,

 

 

Dr. Georgette Meister

Assistant Principal
