November Virtue of the Month - Gratitude

Gratitude is focusing on what's good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have.


"Happiness is the only thing that multiplies when you share it."

November is Native American Heritage Month

Fun fact: Did you know that there are 68 Native American tribes represented within Norman Public Schools?


November is Native American Heritage Month, and we are proud to celebrate and honor the rich history and culture of Native Americans and Indigenous people in the United States. We are especially proud to highlight some of our amazing Native faculty and staff who serve within Norman Public Schools. We value the many contributions they make on a daily basis to serve our students and families!
