FROM THE PRINCIPAL...TONY WHITE
Nurse's Appreciation Week has just wrapped up, and I want to take a moment to thank our nurses for the incredible work that they do for our students, staff, and community at-large. In a typical year, they move mountains, but this past school year, they have moved mountain ranges! They have been integral in keeping our Eagles and Norton Creek community safe and well this year as they have answered countless questions, tracked symptoms, contact traced, and implemented every level of every protocol IDPH and the Kane County Health Department created over the last ten months.
To Gina, Sumana, Brittany, and Cathy, Norton Creek cannot thank you enough for all that you do for us. Whether it's a scraped knee from recess, a student who gets sick in the middle of the day, or a family with a question, I can always confidently tell everyone they're in great hands with our nurses. The passion you have for your work is only matched by your compassion for the people around you, and we are blessed to have you at Norton Creek.
Send some love to nurses everywhere, Norton Creek - the talented nurses in our health office as well as the nurses you visit from time to time who take care of you and your families too.
I'd also like to send some love to our PTO for the awesome Virtual Basket Raffle (Lauren Joselane and Shannon Ring) and Virtual Variety Show (Joy Krelle, Corinne Robbins-Jones, and Michael Grudecki) over the last few weeks in addition to the lovely Teacher Appreciation Week celebration (Dede Collins)! Seeing our Eagles walk in last week with flowers, favorite snacks, and colors for their teachers was just awesome. We are truly fortunate and appreciative to have you and your support! Norton Creek is a special place because of the people who make it up. Every Eagle. Every parent and guardian. Every staff member. Everyone.
In keeping with celebrations, to all of our Muslim friends, I say, "Eid Mubarak" as you break the fast and celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Several Norton Creek students fasted as part of their observance of Ramadan over the past month, and to witness their strength and dedication has been nothing short of inspiring.
We're officially within two weeks of the last day of school, and the weather is looking better! Get out there and enjoy it with your favorite people in the world, Norton Creek! Have a wonderful weekend!
