NO SCHOOL FRIDAY, MARCH 25
A Note From Nurse Cindy
Norton Knights and Parents: We love to see you at school and ready to participate when you are well! However, if there comes a time when you are not, please give your body the opportunity it needs to rest and recover and stay home. If you come to school when you are ill, you are
· putting yourself at risk of prolonging your illness
· at risk of picking up other illnesses since your immune system is already compromised
· very often spreading your germs (whether viruses or bacteria, even with no fever), to others around you.
Please be a kind Norton Knight since we all want to treat others the way we want to be treated. If you ever have a question about whether or not you should send your Norton Knight to school due to symptoms of illness, please call Nurse Cindy and she will be happy to discuss the situation with you. Thank you for your consideration of others.

World Cultures Day Info
Parent Volunteer Information Meeting for World Cultures Day, 2016 to be held on Tuesday, March 29 at 6:00 pm in the Norton Multipurpose Room. World Cultures Day is Friday, May 20, 2016. On this day, students will “travel the world” with passports learning about different countries and cultures. This event would not be possible without our parent volunteers!
Want to be part of a FUN and ENGAGING annual event at Norton? We are looking for helpers for our World Cultures Day! This event takes place DURING the school day.
We need volunteers to…………….
*Host a Country Booth (you do not need to be a native of the country, it could be a place you have visited or even a place you just are interested in and can create an interesting booth for students to visit)
*Help teach a Native Game or Dance at the International Games Booth
*Help students create Multicultural Crafts at the Multicultural Art Booth
*Serve samples at the International Tasting Booth
*Traffic flow helpers/behind the scenes helpers (cutting/prepping supplies, etc.)
If interested, please attend the Parent meeting on March 29. If you can’t attend the meeting but are interested in volunteering for World Cultures Day, contact your child’s classroom teacher, Annette at the front desk or Maria Seid @ email@example.com or (972) 396-6918, ext. 108.
