Beyond Housing Hosts Trunk or Treat for Barack Obama Students

Barack Obama School scholars got in the holiday spirit early with some trunk or treating hosted by Beyond Housing. Students snaked through the parking lot of Beyond Housing, playing games and getting candy. Thanks to our community partner for hosting and making sure our students had fun!

Big picture

To promote transparency in our district, the Normandy Schools Collaborative has created a vehicle to hear directly from our students, parents, staff, and community. If you have concerns or comments about the school system, we want to hear from you. We value your feedback, positive or negative. Please send us a comment about a recent experience, offer suggestions on how we can improve, or give a shout-out to an employee who deserves recognition for doing a great job. All communications with the district will remain anonymous.

Here is how to connect with us:

Upcoming Listening Session Scheduled

In an effort to hear directly from families, Interim Superintendent Dr. Crystal Reiter is holding listening sessions. These will be very informal, and a light meal will be provided. All sessions will be held at the district's central office at 3855 Lucas and Hunt Road in either the board room or room 207.

  • November 3- 8 a.m. in Room 207
  • November 16- 5:30 p.m. in the Board Room
  • December 8- 8 a.m. in Room 207

We will work to keep these meetings small in an effort to have meaningful conversations and schedule more of these meetings throughout the school year.

Please RSVP to Ms. Lori Thompson if you would like to attend.
