We are very excited to announce that beginning this month Norris Middle School will begin construction in the auditorium to create flexible classroom spaces.  This construction is in anticipation for the building renovation and addition starting in the spring of 2017.  On December 6th, McCarthy Construction will begin creating a workspace north of the auditorium.  Walking paths and sidewalks will still be accessible and both main entrance and auditorium entrances will continue to be available.  Thank you for your support of Norris Middle School and we look forward to providing updates on construction throughout the renovation process.
