Normangee MS Family Newsletter

From Mr. Wingfield


So we are wrapping up Red Ribbon week and we were also able to meet with students in RTI this week and discuss Self-Directed behavior. These valuable lessons provide life skills that students can carry with them through their school years and throughout life.

The remaining days for Red Ribbon Week are:

Thurs-Covid Outfit (formal top w/ casual bottoms): "Social distance yourself from drugs."

Fri-*Black out* Neon Day: "Too bright for drugs."

As always we need to make sure that all outfits are in good taste and within dress code.

PTO will be having their Fall Festival this Saturday from 1-4:00 at NISD complex in front of the old gym. Please come out and support our PTO who does so much for our Teachers and Students. Thank you to all the parent and student volunteers that have signed up to help on Saturday!! Please see the Normangee PTO Facebook page for more info.

Please check below for new information for REMIND for MS Teachers. Along with parent portal, REMIND can be used to get information on assignments in your students classes. I am receiving these from teachers little by little so all teachers may not be listed below.

If there is any other information you would like to receive through the MS Newsletter, please feel free to email me at

As always, if I can help in any way please let me know.

From Mrs. Martin

The Capturing Kids Heart focus for October will be Self-Directed Behavior

Self-Direction is the ability and learned skill to cast a vision of future goals and then take intentional steps toward who, where, and what we want to be. Instead of focusing on things to control or avoid, we emphasize our responsibility to make positive choices related to our emotions, attitudes, and actions.

We will be talking to students about positive choices and making sure our actions reflect those.

Our Students of the Month both represent the quality of self-directed behavior and model it daily in class and on the campus.

From the Bus Barn

Please remind your students about continuing to show proper behavior on the buses. We want the bus ride home to reflect the same level of respect we expect in the school building. Disruptive behavior can distract our bus drivers and we want to make sure everyone behaves appropriately and everyone gets home safely.

Thanks for your support

Construction Updates

Construction has started on the NISD bond updates. Students may no longer use the doors at the back of the MS that go into the HS. Students must now walk through the front of the school and around to any classes they may have in band or the HS. This change is necessary in order to keep students out of the construction areas. Fencing has been put up around restricted areas and students and parents are reminded to stay out of these areas when on school campuses. Please help us out by staying in permitted areas and reminding your students to follow our construction guidelines. Thanks for your support as we improve our schools!

The district has rolled out our PAPER tutoring program. Our English classes are currently making sure all students can log in and understand how to utilize this great resource. Students may use PAPER to get 24/7 tutoring at home and at school. Parents can also use in order to help students with their homework. Please remind your students at home to use this tool when they are needing extra support with homework.
