TEEN READ WEEK is on it's way!! The theme this year is “IT CAME FROM THE LIBRARY!!” The library is sponsoring a contest for the best bookmark idea that uses that theme.

We will have one winner from each grade.

Last Friday's victory at Seward wrapped up an impressive regular season for the Norris Titans Football Team and locked us in as the #10 seed for the state football playoffs.
