Families and Athletic Spectators
- The start time for all OPS Middle School Athletic Events are 3:30 pm. We ask that all parents, families, and friends support their athlete from the bleacher area reserved for spectators. The cost of admission for OPS Middle School contests is $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for school aged children. OPS Sponsored Tournaments are $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for school aged children. Thank you for your support for Redbird Athletics.

 

Student Led Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, February 16, from 12:30-7:30 P.M. Please bring your child with you to conferences as Norris has student led conferences.

Student-led conferences are a form of parent-teacher conferences, but with students taking the lead role and guiding their parents through their learning and grades. Students have a script they follow to inform their parents of their grades. Each student will have a folder with self-evaluation sheets from each class with assignments attached to show his or her level of learning. Once that occurs, teachers are available for questions and concerns.

During conferences, there will be a table in the hallway south of the auditorium. Please stop there to pick up your child's report card, and head to either the gym or the cafeteria. The teachers for seventh and eighth grade students along with cooperative arts teachers will be located in the gym. The sixth grade teachers will be in the cafeteria.

 

Norris Middle School is proud to support a former student by offering a $250 scholarship to be used towards the student’s college of choice.  The application is due February 24, 2017.
