THE LION'S ROAR!

A Message from our Pride Leader
Hello Norris Lion Community!
We had a great week at Norris, beginning with teachers digging into our fall assessment data on Tuesday and preparing lessons that meet the needs of all of our students. Thank you to all who attended Family Picnic Night on Thursday, and stayed for the first PTO meeting of the year. We had a great turnout at our Donuts with Dads event, kicking off our Watch DOG Volunteer program. We can't wait to have our parents and community members involved in all of the exciting things at Norris this year!
