FROM THE PRINCIPAL...TONY WHITE
On behalf of the team here at Norton Creek, we hope you enjoyed the curriculum videos earlier this week. But, wait! There's more! We will hold an in-person Meet the Teacher/Open House for parents and guardians in mid- to late-September. Striking the balance between our community's health and wellness as well as a warm welcome, this will not be a repeat of the curriculum presentations you saw on the videos, but more of a chance to meet these wonderful people you gift with your awesome children with five days a week. As much as we enjoy our Eagles, to best facilitate social distancing in our classrooms, I do ask that this be a parent/guardian only event. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks ahead. We look forward to welcoming you back into the building late next month!
Short and sweet this week for you, Norton Creek! Enjoy the weekend with your favorite people and beat that heat!
