Middle School Picture day is one week from today, Friday, Aug. 31st.  Order forms do not go home before pictures as they do in the Elementary.  Remember not to wear white, for color shows so much better.  We will begin shortly after attendance is taken and should be done by noon.  So, when scheduling appointments try to avoid.  We will shoot pictures in this grade order:  7th, 6th, 8th, & 5th.

5th & 6th Grade there is a Norris Volleyball Youth League coming up Sept. 15th, 29th, Oct. 6th & Tuesday, Oct. 9th.  5Th grade your registration form will be in your Thursday folder and 6th grade if interested stop and pick one up from the brochure holder in the MS Office.

If you have yet to do so, make sure you get your Student Yearly Update turned into the office. This is a form needed by each student each and every year no matter if you are doing sports or not.

Thanks for wearing the right length of shorts and/or skirts through the last of the hot months..  If the shorts/skirts are shorter than your finger tips when your arms are stretched out – than they are too short.  Save those for home, and on the weekends.  As we switch to jeans, make sure there are no holes and leggins do not count underneath to cover the holes.

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.
