We are so excited to have iPads in the hands of 970 Redbirds. If you were
unable to complete paperwork to get your iPad, your parents can come up on Tuesdays to fill out paperwork.
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.
· 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. Thank you.
attendance goal here at Norris is “Strive for 95.”
That means that each student achieves 95% daily attendance, each student!
We want you here every day and are glad you are here! We will be recognizing
our “Strive for 95” students at the end of each month.
Each Monday, we will recognize
students who had one full week of perfect attendance the last week. Your
names will be posted outside the main office, and we will randomly draw 15
students, 3 per grade level, from that list to come to the main office and win
a prize. Keep Striving for 95!
Place for Hate will have a meeting in the cafeteria
today during Redbird block. Check in with Redbird block teacher first.
