From Mr. Wingfield

Howdy!


Wow!! The last week has felt awesome outside and Fall weather is hopefully here to stay.


I want to give a shout out to our awesome PTO for providing our teachers with treats this week. I know our teachers absolutely appreciated it. Our PTO does so much for teachers and staff and we are always so thankful for all they do. They can't do what they do without support of parent volunteers, so thank you to those that are already involved. If you are not already a volunteer and would still like to be a part of PTO you can email

All of us know someone that has been affected by breast cancer and although we always support friends and family throughout the year, October is breast cancer awareness month. This month we will be wearing pink. You might ask why pink. Such a gentle, caring color-the exact opposite of breast cancer; invasive, aggressive, indiscriminate. The pink ribbon became the a symbol for breast cancer in 1992 for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, It represents the fight and fear of breast cancer, but also hope for the future.


October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month. It has been recognized every October since 1980. It's purpose is to raise public awareness and to advocate for acceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome. It is also a time to make others aware of their abilities and accomplishments.


As always, if I can help in any way please let me know.

From the Bus Barn

We are having a lot of students getting on buses in the afternoon and then getting off the bus again to go to the car rider lanes. Please plan ahead or call the front office during the school day if their will be a change of ridership. Safety of students is our priority and knowing our bus ridership and accounting for all students is best when we know ahead of time. Please make any changes by 2:00 so that we can communicate accordingly.


Thanks for your support

From Mrs. Martin

The Capturing Kids Heart focus for October will be Self-Directed Behavior

Self-Direction is the ability and learned skill to cast a vision of future goals and then take intentional steps toward who, where, and what we want to be. Instead of focusing on things to control or avoid, we emphasize our responsibility to make positive choices related to our emotions, attitudes, and actions.


We will be talking to students about positive choices and making sure our actions reflect those.


Our Student of the Month will also be someone who represents the quality of self-directed behavior and models it daily in class and on the campus.

HS Football Pink Out Game Fundraiser

HS football will be having a fundraiser to raise money to donate to a cancer charity. They will be selling Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbons and displaying them on the field the night of their Pink Out game. You can personalize your sign with the first name or nickname of a loved one. This personalization can be in honor of, in memory of, or just your family name if you would like to donate. If you choose not to personalize your sign then they will just put Panthers in that area of the ribbon. If you would like to donate, please fill out the attached google form. You can also turn in your money to any coach or football player. You can pay with cash or check (made out to Normangee ISD). The ribbons are only 14x8 so you will only be able to display one name per ribbon. Please feel free to forward this to anybody that you think would like to donate.
