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 have an assembly in the Middle School Gym on Tuesday, January 29, during LITT to Kickoff the Event. Pastor Tom, with Lincoln City Mission, will be present to speak with our students about the event and the impact it has on others.

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

2018 Totals

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

  • 7th-Grade brought in 688 pairs

  • 8th-Grade brought in 448.

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


Are you a fan of Instagram?  If so, LISTEN UP! We need a few students from each grade here at the middle school to be our Instagram Posters.   Your job, if you are looking for a challenge, would be to promote NMS with pictures you take that would be posted and captioned on our Instagram account.   INTERESTED? The informational meeting date has been RESCHEDULED for Monday, Feb. 4 during LITT in Mr. Cullison’s room.
