Norris Middle School will participate in the Sock Drive again this February. This will be our 3rd Year participating in the event and we hope to raise the same amount (almost 2,000 pairs) if not more socks, again this year!

We will set the same goals for each grade level at 600, with a school goal of 1,800

2018 Totals

  1. 6th-Grade Rocked it by bringing in 803 pairs of socks.

  2. 7th-Grade brought in 688 pairs

  3. 8th-Grade brought in 448.

We exceeded the school goal of 1,800 pairs of socks but fell just short of 2,000 pairs.

If you have been bullied, or witness another student being bullied, report this immediately to Mrs. Leininger, Mr. Rice, Mr. Bade or one of your teachers. #BeKind.
