·         State testing is coming up for our 6th grade students. 6th graders will take the Reading and Math assessments on April 16 and 17. Students are encouraged to perform their best 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 on the two days of testing.  Students are also reminded to bring their iPads fully charged to school for testing.  Good luck Redbirds, rock NSCAS!


·         iPad 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!
