Dr. Looney's Message

Hello, Summerour Parents! Dr. Looney here. It is our last Blue Devil Blast of the year. We hope you have enjoyed our weekly communication shared here each week.

We appreciate all that you have done.

Eighth graders: we will miss you, but we know that you are prepared and can do what you need to do at the high school level.

Summer is coming. Students have an opportunity to check out books from the Media Center for the summer.

We also have Summer Enrichment and Acceleration coming up. We are past the deadline for transportation, but if you are willing to transport your child, we can still take applicants. Please reach out to Ms. Gray for more information.

Keep your kids involved, busy, and learning this summer.

No book bags at all next week, but also no uniforms required next week. No uniforms and no book bags!

The last day of school is our Field Day. We could use lots of parent volunteers. Please join us to assist if you are able.

We hope your child had a wonderful year at Summerour this year. If you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out.

Norcross High School Softball Camp

July 19-22


This year we will be focusing more on small group instruction. Your camper will be a part of a team for the whole week that will have 1-2 leaders that will be in charge. These will include the current players of the program and alumni that presently play in college that will also be there helping. There will be a current softball pitcher present and will be able to break down catcher's drills as well. We are very excited about this!

Please fill out the form below and let me know if you have any questions.

**Note, the last day of camp may go a half hour longer.
