Summer 2017

Volleyball Update

On Monday, July 17th, we will be having volleyball tryouts (the tryout is to determine PRELIMINARY placement on JV/Varsity) for girls that are going to be in the 7th and 8th grade for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. The tryout will be from 4-6 pm in the Longfellow Gym, followed by the parent meeting. Any girl trying out MUST have a current sports physical completed and turned in so that they can participate in the tryout. If they do not have a sports physical completed and turned in, they can watch the tryout and attend the parent meeting. Because every girl that tries out will be on the team, the rest of the Rank One athletic forms required to participate will need to be completed before the beginning of the first practice. Individual practice participation cannot occur until ALL Rank One forms have been completed. The Rank One forms can be accessed by clicking on or copying/pasting the following link: https://normanpublic.rankonesport.com/New/Home.aspx

Laptop and Backpack Information

Next year 6th -12th grade students will be checked out a macbook air to use in school. We recommend students purchasing cases for the laptops to keep them safe. Because students will be carrying their laptops with them all day, backpacks will be allowed in classes. In order to help you with purchasing school supplies this summer, I am providing the information on the devices below.


Macbook Air

  • (13-inch/1.6GHz i5/8GB/256GB flash storage/Intel HD Graphics 6000)
