Media & Tech Tips

A publication from Norton's Media & Tech Team

Title I Items

All Title I items, excluding equipment and F&P Kits, are due back to the media center on Friday, December 11. F&P Kits will need to be returned no later than December 18th. Title I is doing an inventory in January and needs all items accounted for in our collection. Thanks for your help.


Online testing begins on Monday. Ms. Thomas and Mrs. Martin's lab will be used for testing. Because of the need to use the labs, Ms. Thomas is moving to the lab next to Mrs. Crumbley for two weeks. If you normally have lab time in 1.118, please email Jennifer to see if another slot is available for you. ALL of the laptops carts will be used for testing, too.

Laptops Over Winter Break

Just like Thanksgiving break, ALL laptops must be powered OFF and secured BEFORE you leave on December 18th. Please put these items OUT OF SIGHT and lock your door when you leave!

Library Books & Winter Break

Library books are not called back in for the winter break. If you would like your students to return books on Friday, December 18th for safe keeping, Allison and Debbie would appreciate you doing so. With students being gone for a two week period, along with moves over the break, we tend to have a lot of lost or overdue books.

As a reminder, please send students who need to finish Tuesday night's online eCLASS homework to one of the eCLASS Pass labs on Wednesday mornings. Kudos to Ms. Jividen and Mr. Holmes for sending their students. SEVEN of Ms. Jividen's students were able to finish their homework!

Monday, December 7th is an eCLASS Day

Plan on joining Laura Girard in the data room for eCLASS on Monday. 5th grade - you will meet in Jennifer's lab upstairs!

Checked Out Materials

You will find a list of materials you have checked out to you in your mailbox next week. Since we are halfway through this school year, please take a moment to look at the list and return any materials you are no longer using with your students. Feel free to keep anything you are still using.


LAMINATING SCHEDULE CHANGE—Beginning in January, our NEW laminating days will be Tuesday and Friday. We have a dedicated volunteer, Ms. Wright (aka Rebecca Hall’s Mom) who loves to laminate and these are her dedicated days to come help us.
