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

  • 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!

STAY STRONG …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.
