• BIST Life Goal #3- At Norris we expect you to be ok and productive when it’s hard or you don’t like a rule. Every day we are faced with things we would rather not do, but it is at these times we need for you to show responsibility and be ok and productive. Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

• National Junior Honor Society Members please remember to get your t-shirt orders to Ms. Jacobberger by this Friday. She needs shirt sizes from everyone! You may leave your order in her mailbox.

• If you attended the informational meeting for the Boston Trip over Spring Break and have had trouble registering, please go see Ms. Jacobberger as soon as possible, she has a very important information change!

• There will be a second audition for Drumline on Tuesday Sept. 26th. We have filled 19 spots already.

Picture Retakes - October 24

Mark your calendar for Parent Teacher Conferences.

Student Led Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, February 11, 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.

Marque su calendario para la junta de padres y maestros.

La junta de padres y maestros dirigida por los estudiantes será el jueves, 11 de febrero de 12:30 a 7:30 p.m.  Por favor traiga a su estudiante con usted a la junta de Norris.  Las conferencias de padres y maestros dirigidas por los estudiantes son una forma de que los estudiantes tomen el papel principal y guíen a sus padres a través de lo que han aprendido, a la vez que les muestran sus calificaciones.  Los estudiantes cuentan con un guion que siguen para informarles a sus padres sus calificaciones.  Cada estudiante tendrá un folder de cada clase con su propia evaluación y con su asignación adjunta para mostrar su nivel de aprendizaje.  Una vez que el estudiante haya mostrado el folder a sus padres,  los maestros estarán disponibles para contestar cualquier pregunta o preocupación que tengan. 

Durante las conferencias, habrá una mesa en el pasillo del lado sur del auditorio.  Por favor pare ahí y recoja la boleta de calificaciones de su estudiante y vaya a la cafetería o al gimnasio.  Los maestros de sexto grado estarán en la cafetería.

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.

 Due to the movement of student lockers as a result of the construction, student lockers will not be issued for the 2017-2018 school year.  All students were provided a Norris Middle School backpack at the start of the school year.  Replacement backpacks are available as well; please go to the main office if you need a replacement backpack.  Students may also use their own personal backpack.  Parents may request a student locker if necessary.  

Debido a la construcción se han movido los casilleros de los estudiantes; por lo tanto, los estudiantes no tendrán casilleros durante el año escolar 2017-2018.  Al comenzar el año se les proveyó a todos los estudiantes mochilas de la Escuela Secundaria Norris.  Habrá mochilas de repuesto disponibles; por favor vaya a la oficina si necesita reemplazar una mochila.  Los estudiantes también podrán usar su propia mochila.  En caso de que se necesario, los padres podrán solicitar un casillero.
