Norman Public School Foundation Grant Winners!

The NPS Foundation presented five grants for Longfellow teachers this past week to assist with supplies for special projects in their classrooms.

Technology Survey for Parents

  • The NPS technology committee invites you to complete the national Speak technology survey. The information we collect will be used to help your school and the school district plan for future technology use and implementations.

  • The link to the survey is Technology Survey: Speak Up 2017. The link is also available on the Norman Public School website at Click on the Parents tab, then click on the link labeled Technology Survey: Speak Up 2017 Follow the on screen directions at the link. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. The survey closes on January 19, 2018. Thank you for supporting Norman Public Schools.

College Board PSAT Update

PSAT results will be available to you online within the next few weeks. In the meantime you can create an account with your student to log in to later in order to receive your student's score report. Go to the website below and follow the prompts to 'create new account.' Once your student's account is created you will need to verify it and update your information (this requires you to simply add your home address). Once this is complete you will be able to log in and view your score reports when they are available. Paper copies of score reports will be distributed to students following Winter Break with their original test booklets.

Volunteers Needed!

Haskell and Lemon Construction Company is donating hot asphalt patch for our back parking lot. We are looking for some volunteers to help spend a few hours helping with patching. If you are available to assist on the week of December 18, please send me an email at with your name and phone number. I will compile the volunteer names to send to Mr. Zorba who is our parent volunteer leading this improvement. We are also looking for an old truck or solid bottom trailer that could haul the hot asphalt that day.
