REMINDER:  Conferences are next Tuesday and Thursday

REMINDER TO ALL STUDENTS:  The school has furnished you a locker and a lock to keep your items safe.  We are seeing a lot of lockers without locks on them.  We understand is makes it quick to get in and out between classes, but it also makes it quick for someone else to get in and out of your locker as well.

For those of you with an awesome memory, you might remember that Norris Middle School Collected over 1,700 pairs of socks last February during our first annual Sock Drive. This February, hold on to your hats...and bring in your socks. Let's see if we can outdo our donations from last year!  It’s grade against grade - the challenge is on!  New socks, old socks, red socks, blue socks...we will take them all. Any size and Any style! Pairs are preferred and singles are welcome. Please donate new and/or gently used socks!

WHY SOCKS? Socks are consistently one of the most needed items at the Lincoln City Mission. The mission gave out all 8,000 socks that were donated last year in just 3 short months. So often People come to the shelter with nothing but the clothes on their back and socks are more than just a fashion statement but an important part of staying healthy.
