From The Principal Tony White.......

As we are now a bit more than a week into the school year, I am feeling very grateful. I am grateful to our amazing team here at Norton Creek for the passion and compassion they show each of our Eagles and families to continue to build a school that works for everyone. I am grateful to our families for the love you show us each day. The relationship we enjoy together truly is the fuel for the engine of our school and community, and something Norton Creek never takes for granted. I am grateful to each of our Eagles who come to school each day trying their very hardest not only in their learning but also in living out our 3 Be's for being kind, respectful, and problem-solvers. It inspires me as an adult to see our Eagles persevere and build their strength and stamina in not only their academics but socially and emotionally as well. I am grateful to our PTO who work around the clock with us to set the perfect vibe and tone for our whole community. Whether it's a "WELCOME BACK, EAGLES!!!" sign with a photo-op with Norton or hosting Popsicles in the Park tonight from 6-8 out back or Clare Keeney putting together a very thoughtful sweet, salty, and beverages table in our staff lounge this week, these folks are integral to what we do, who we are, and are so appreciated.


Every student deserves a great place to learn. Every adult deserves a great place to work. And when that happens, families get the great school you deserve to be proud of. Together, we will continue to work to make that a reality, and I am so excited for the ride.


I hope to see you tonight for Popsicles in the Park, Norton Creek! Take the weekend to spend time with your favorite people making memories!
