We have four Norris 8th graders who have qualified for the NATIONAL HISTORY BEE competition in Atlanta, GA in June.  WOW!  CONGRATULATIONS TO:  Tyle Auman, Clinton Lowe, Ben Rathjen and Nate Wheeler.  At regionals in Omaha, our Titans took four of the top ten places -- the other spots were taken by six separate schools, so it was , indeed a proud moment for the Titans!  In order to help with expenses, the boys are selling these classic Norris T-shirts.  They are great since they can be used for any Norris occasion - they will be a great T-Shirt for any event / school day.  The hashtag #titanspride is on the back of the shirt, and the shirt comes in solid navy and red heather.  Please help support the trip for our team and decrease your stress when deciding what to wear.  The shirt design is displayed in the MS Office along with order forms.
