·       Attention Book Blasters: We will be meeting in room 218 during Redbird Block today! Bring your books, iPads and graphic organizers! Check in with your Redbird block teacher first.


·       Attention students who love to dance! Omaha South High School’s Luvabulls Dancers invite you to their Dance Camp tomorrow at 9 am. Cost is only $10 to attend, and you get to perform during their basketball game that night. Please see Miss Hansen in room 218 with questions.


·       Attention 8th graders:  Our annual 8th grade celebration will take place on Tuesday, May 21st at Fun Plex.  Students who attend must not have any out of school suspensions and have final approval from their administrator.  More info to come!


·       Eight graders!  Remember to complete and turn in your High School selection form to your RBB teacher.  This is a district requirement and every eight grader needs to turn one in.  Select your three main choices and have it signed by your parents.   Talk to your counselor if you have a question.


·       Redbirds we have made an adjustment to restroom passes.  Each zone will be color coordinated, the expectation is that you use the assigned color-coded restroom.  This will be the closest restroom on your floor to your classroom.  We will have 1 pass available at a time in the classroom.  Please demonstrate respect and ask for permission at an appropriate time, then wait for teacher permission, have integrity and keep the restrooms clean, be safe and wash your hands using soap and water and demonstrate empathy and helpfulness by reporting problems to an adult.


·       We are so excited to have iPads for all of our students! If you are a day user, you must turn your iPad in at the end of every school day.

·       Your parents may come up to school on Tuesdays to complete the paperwork, so you can start taking your iPads home.

·       A few reminders about iPads: Outside of the classroom, iPads should always be in backpacks. That includes in the hallway and if you have last lunch in the cafeteria. If your class does not have last lunch, we ask that you leave your backpack with your iPad in the classroom. Teachers will secure classroom doors.

·       Your name should always be on the lock screen of the iPad.

·       The iPads are still the property of the Omaha Public Schools, and any inappropriate behavior, including air dropping, playing music, taking pictures without authorization will be subject to the Code of Conduct. You are responsible for anything on your device.


·       Our attendance goal here at Norris is “Strive for 95.”  That means that each student achieves 95% daily attendance!  We want you here every day and are glad you are here!  Keep striving for 95!
