on these assessments in order to reflect their learning progress. Norris
staff is committed to maintaining a secure and effective testing
environment. Due to the testing schedule, we will be blocking off the
north first floor hallways, as well as shutting off the 11:16 and 11:20 bells

iPads fully charged to school for testing. Good luck Redbirds, rock
Fact: When you turn your iPad in at the end of the school year,
you must have an Apple charging block and cord to turn in as well. Make sure
you are keeping track of these! If you have lost yours, you must purchase a
replacement on your own. If you have any questions you can ask Mrs. Newman.
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!
