A Message from our NEW Pack Leader, Mrs. Dolezal!

Dear Norris Families,

Thank you for your support and kindness this week for our students and staff. Norris is an incredibly special community, and we are so thankful to serve such wonderful families. Our staff cares so deeply for each student! Please continue to reach out if your child is in need of additional support or guidance, and know that we are here to assist you in any way that we can! Our classrooms this week were busy with community building activities, beginning of the year assessments, and new learning for all. Teachers have been working hard to get to know their new students, and our Lions have been working hard getting back into the school routine! Thank you for all you are doing to help your child be successful at school. Have a wonderful weekend, and spend some extra time with those you love the most!

Pride Singers!

There is still time to join our Pride Singers!


Dear Parents of Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade Students,


The Norris Pride Singers is an opportunity available for your son or daughter. Students experience performing with a large group in unison and harmony, performing music of varied styles.


Rehearsals will be held in the vocal music room every Wednesday morning (starting 8/17) from 7:30 to 8:20 AM. Students will meet outside the main entrance on the South side of the building. Students will be let inside to begin rehearsal promptly at 7:30. Please drop off your student no earlier than 7:20. If you should arrive outside of those times, they should enter the main front door; however prompt and regular attendance is extremely important, so hopefully that will be a rare occurrence. If a student must miss due to illness or emergency, please let me know via email.


The first two rehearsals are open to all students without making a commitment to join Pride Singers. By the third week, students who plan to be in Pride Singers should commit to rehearsals for the whole semester, through our winter concert. Our winter concert will be sometime in December (more information coming).


Please be aware that Pride Singers are a standard of excellence at Norris. Students who don’t represent ROAR at the highest level may be subject to removal from Chorus. To help reinforce the leadership our singers have, please go over this note with your student, and have them sign at the bottom before you sign it.


Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions. My goal for your child is to have a rewarding and memorable experience as part of a large ensemble.
