From Mr. Wingfield

We are three weeks away from the official start to the 2022-23 school year. I know most of you are wrapping up your summer activities, but August 17th will be here before you know it. Hopefully the following information will be helpful to plan ahead and be ready when the first day of school arrives. I have already seen many of our teachers up here preparing classrooms and getting ready to get rolling! So thankful to work with such dedicated educators here at Normangee MS. See y'all soon!


Please feel free to reach out to me anytime. I am here to help in any way I can.


Go Panthers!!

Jump Start Program

Classes for Jump Start began this week on July 25th and will run through August 4th from 8:00-12:00, Monday-Thursday on the Normangee MS campus.

If you have been out of town or missed the last message, it is not too late to show up.


The hours completed during Jump Start will be counted towards the 30 intervention hours required by HB 4545 for students that did not meet the state standard on the STAAR test.

Letters were mailed home a few weeks ago for any students that met the criteria for the Jump Start program. If you feel like you should have received a letter and did not, please contact us at 936-396-3111.

Any students that do not attend will still be required to make up the 30 hours during the school year.

From Athletics

Any students interested in participating in Athletics for the 2022-23 school year must fill out the appropriate paper work and have physicals on file. Physicals need to be turned in the by the first day of school. If you do not have a physical you can not participate. Below are links to the hard copy versions of athletic paperwork:

More information to follow

From Food and Child Nutrition

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress authorized spending that allowed schools to serve free meals for all students. Those funds are not authorized to continue for the 2022-2023 school year.


As a result, Normangee ISD must return to charging for school meals and offering free and reduced-price meals based on student eligibility.



Families are encouraged to complete the Application for Free and Reduced-Price School Meals, which is https://www.mealappnow.com/hisnor/splash.php Please complete the form online. You may also use this link to sign up for Lunch Money Now in order to have accounts set up for student lunches.

From the Nurse

If your student is going to be in 7th grade they will need to have up to date immunizations before they can attend school on August 17th. All 7th graders will be due for Tdap and MCV4 immunizations. If your incoming 7th grader has already received these immunizations, please submit to the school nurse in order to update records. If you have any questions please feel free to call or text Erica Sorters, our school nurse, at 979-218-4105.
