STATE ASSESSMENTS: Just a reminder that State Assessments will be continuing in the next couple weeks. It is important for parents to send their child to school during this time to take the tests. Encourage your child to take the test serious, and do the best they can. This is an important part of the school year and we want the students to feel refreshed, relaxed, and confident of their ability to be successful on these very important State assessments. Thank you for your support.

SUMMER PLANS: Even though summer is a couple of months away, if a family is planning on moving from Norton during the summer, please contact the office. Schedules, class lists and other school related issues are being worked on now in preparation for the 2019/2020 school year.

WALKING TO AND FROM SCHOOL: We are asking parents to remind their child(ren) the importance of safety when walking to and from school. Please talk to your child(ren) about not talking to strangers in cars and never to approach a vehicle for any reason. We cover this subject some in school, but for the safety of the students, we need to have parents reinforce this with their own children. Thank you very much for this and if you have any questions, please contact the office.

BEST CHOICE: The school is now collecting Best Choice labels that are found on cans and other food products in our local grocery stores. The Best Choice labels are found by the bar codes on these products. We are going to use the labels to purchase additional alternative seating for our classrooms. Save them for us and we will send them off at the end of the year. Best Choice labels are found on a lot of the products, so please help us out in this activity to secure funds for our alternative seating in our school. Best Choice labels do not replace BoxTops as we will continue to do BoxTops as well for our school. Thank you for your help and support in this matter.
