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 skirts and straps on shirts must be at least 2” wide with no bra straps showing. Slippers are not to be worn as shoes. Please be respectful to yourself.


Let's Get the Lost-N-Found cleaned out – please take what is yours home – your lunch sack, your coat, your mittens, your hats, pick up your planner and books and return them to your locker. Thank you for taking care of what is yours!


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!

Looking for summer work – check out the detasseling opportunities:
