MS Bulletin



Each day here at Norris we form relationships.  It’s not the buildings that

make Norris a great place it’s the Students and Staff.  Today is “Teacher

Appreciation” and “Nurses” Day.  Take time to share your appreciation

for these outstanding people in your life.  Stop by Jill’s desk to pick up a yellow Post It Note to share your thanks for Nurse Chris - place your Post It on Chris’s door, Chris the one who not only mends our Boo Boo’s, takes away our headaches, but puts a smile on our face.  Don’t forget to share your thanks

for those teachers that share their knowledge with you each and every day.

You will appreciate it more in years to come, so say Thanks today!
