LUNCH MENU - NOVEMBER
PTO HOLIDAY STORE - DECEMBER 1ST & 2ND
Our Norris Holiday Store is coming up next week on December 1 & 2. Students will have a chance to shop for family, friends, or themselves during the school day. All items will cost between $0.10-$5.00. A shopping list is available below. The shopping list helps our volunteers know who your student is shopping for and what their budget is.
We are still looking for volunteers for the Holiday Store. Volunteers will help students shop and help wrap their gifts. Click here to sign up: Holiday Store Volunteer Sign Up. If you're unable to stay for the entire shift, just let us know. We appreciate any amount of time you have to give.

BOOK CAKE CONTEST - NOV. 28TH - DEC.1ST
BOOK SWAP - BRING USED BOOKS BY DEC. 7TH!
Please see the flyer below. We will be collecting money through December 16! The more money we raise, the more teachers we get to pie in the face. All money is to be turned into the bucket in the office.
Students may then vote individually for the teacher they want to see pied in the face. Here is a LINK or you may scan the QR code on the right to "vote" for a teacher to get pied.
Our goal is $2,000. If we meet that goal we will pie 7 teachers! We're off to a great start and are more than half-way to reaching our goal!
Every $50 more we will add a teacher onto the pie roster.
