Season is changing slowly which means change in wardrobe. Reminder then to follow dress code – refer to your planner if you have questions. Biggest issue is long enough shorts and straps on shirts.

The human tongue can do so much damage. We must be ever mindful and not speak critically. A lot of what we say is probably best left unsaid. If you have been bullied or witnessed another student being bullied, immediately report this to a staff member, Mrs. Rupert or Mrs. Tracy. Thank you for helping to make Norris Middle School a safe and welcoming community. Stay Strong!
