Tracey's Weekly Friday Community Meetings

Friday, May 11, 2018

For our weekly Friday Community Meeting, Mrs. Mick’s class in room 202 informed the whole school of our upcoming cultural week. For the cultural week on Tuesday we will be having a parade at 2:00 pm, on Wednesday at 9:30 am a flamenco dancer assembly, and on Thursday we will be hosting the cultural night where families bring various food dishes from their native countries. Students also received cultural dolls which they designed to look as someone from their native country. The dolls will be hung up on Thursday as decoration for the cultural night.

New Student Registration Is Now Live Online


Registration of Kindergarteners and other new students is now live online through PowerSchool Registration. This platform allows parents to easily and securely enter their child’s information, and upload appropriate registration documentation. Instructions on how to access the system for your student will be available on your individual school website or on the district website. If you do not know which school your child is assigned to, click here to check your address.

New families to the district should provide contact information to the school where you plan to enroll. After this is completed, an email will be sent to parents containing a link and a brief description of how to register your child.

Please note: parents will still need to supply the original documentation (proof of residency, birth certificate/passport, parent ID, medical forms, etc.) to their schools for verification to complete the registration process. Click here for a complete checklist of documents needed.

Parents who prefer to register at school or do not have internet access may register online at their school via designated Chromebooks. Or, parents may stop by in person at a Kindergarten registration event. Check the district website for dates and locations. Principals will be on hand at these events to answer any questions pertaining to their schools.

For questions on materials needed to register a student at NPS, please visit the NPS website. For help with registration please contact the NPS IT department at powerschool@ norwalkps.org

Morning Drop-off at Portico

It has been brought to our attention that there are safety concerns regarding parent driving during morning drop-off. Going forward any vehicles dropping off students in front of the portico will not be permitted to park in front of the main door. Any vehicles dropping off students will enter thru the designated path indicated by orange cones. The side entrance to our gym will be open from 8:45-9:05 am. The doors at the portico will remain unlocked until 9:20 am. Students entering the portico should be dropped off and walk on the side of the orange cones closest to the building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
