At Dismissal, all students are to exit the Middle School building from the commons area to get to the buses. DO NOT leave the building through the South Doors off of the gym and then cut across the parking lot. The parking lot is very congested at the end of the day. Cutting across the parking lot is not safe and not the route you are to take to get to your buses.

REMINDER TO STUDENTS that if you are not getting Grab and Go … to not go to the Grab and Go line. Several like to join friends and that is causing problems in line and check-out. Thank you for your cooperation.

HEY Norris Middle School Students & Staff It's time for: READ ACROSS AMERICA DOOR CONTEST.

  • February 11-13 each LITT group must vote on their favorite book and choose what title they would like to use as their door decoration. When deciding, help students visualize what their door may look like, so that they don't choose a completely impossible book to try to translate onto a door. (Diary of A Wimpy Kid, or Hunger Games would be great! Uglies or Ender's Game would be more difficult.

  • LITT classes have from Feb. 14 – Feb. 28th to design and construct their door design. All designs should be taped to the classroom door on or before the Read Across America Day, March 1, 2013.

  • After choosing the book to decorate, begin designing the door. The students may use paper, aluminum foil, macaroni, whatever, as long as it stays glued to the backing paper of the design. Decide if you want to stay above the door handle, or cover the entire door with a hole for the handle. With such a big area to decorate, and a little prompting, students should be able to break the project into parts to give more kids a chance to participate.

  • Each door will be constructed using one sheet of butcher paper from the library as the back. That way the class can slowly add designs and glue items to it and then quickly tape it to the door by Friday, March 1, 2013.

  • Each door should somehow represent the book it's designed after, whether that be by reproducing the cover art, or showing story elements. Each design must have author's name and the title of the book, but those are the only design requirements.

  • We will have celebrity judges come around the judge their favorite door. The winning LITT group will earn a pizza party from Papa D's Pizza in Firth. The party will be Friday, March 8. We will have prizes for special categories as well. The more students we get involved the better!
