Laptop and Backpack Information

Next year 6th -12th grade students will be checked out a macbook air to use in school. We recommend students purchasing cases for the laptops to keep them safe. Because students will be carrying their laptops with them all day, backpacks will be allowed in classes. In order to help you with purchasing school supplies this summer, I am providing the information on the devices below.


Macbook Air

  • (13-inch/1.6GHz i5/8GB/256GB flash storage/Intel HD Graphics 6000)
  • Part Number: MMGJ2LL/A

There is a great site that you can submit your questions about the itech launch. https://sites.google.com/norman.k12.ok.us/itech/about-itech

LMS Yearbook

Yearbooks are in! Please bring $40 (cash or check) to Mrs. Bond by Monday if you haven't purchased one yet. Distribution will be on Tuesday during homeroom. Please email Mrs. Bond if there is a problem or concern. All students will need to sign when they receive their yearbooks. jbond@norman.k12.ok.us

Apps Creator Class for Incoming 8th grade students

Have you ever wondered how mobile apps are created?


Students learn and apply computational thinking and technical knowledge and skills to create mobile apps. Students also acquire and apply skills pertaining to the design process, problem solving, persistence, collaboration, and communication.


The unit provides students opportunities for self-expression. Teams identify a personal or community problem of interest to them that can be solved with a mobile app solution. The problem can address issues such as health and wellness, the environment, school culture, emergency preparedness, education, community service—the options are endless!

Go beyond being an app consumer and become an app creator!


Sign up with Mrs. Whittle in the office.
