A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRIDE LEADER
Happy Valentine's Day Norris Lions!
We had a GREAT time celebrating Valentine's Day in classrooms at Norris today, thank you to all who donated supplies and their time to our parties! There are so many things that we LOVE about Norris!
We appreciate all families who attended parent teacher conferences. The connections between school and home are essential to student success. Remember there is no school for the rest of this week, or Monday, February 20th. We hope you have a great long weekend, and will see you back at Norris on Tuesday, February 21st!
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Dolezal, Principal
