    Posted by Anita Billiot on 10/4/2018 6:00:00 AM

    Since the beginning of this school year, we have had several new faces here at M. E. Norman.  I would like to take the time to welcome them and introduce them to you.   

    • Mrs. Rochelle Suire is our new fifth grade science and social studies teacher.  She came to us from Bayou Vista Elementary with 9 years of teaching experience.  She has been a great addition to our Team Norman Staff.
    • Cassandra Romo is our new ELL Tutor and Interpretor.  Ms. Romo is working with our English Language Learners in the classroom and is in charge of facilitating our Imagine Learning Program. 
    • April McConathy is our new Fast ForWord Facilitator.  Ms. McConathy has had experience working at several Fast ForWord labs within our parish. 
    • Alexis Mikeska is our new to our first grade team.  She will be teaching ELA to our first graders.  

    Our new staff members are very excited about joing Team Norman.  They are working hard to help our students have a successful year. 

    In other news, we have a very busy month planned at Norman Elementary.  Beginning on Friday, October 5th our students will have Fall Break.  The following Tuesday we will have Parent/Teacher conferences for selected students.  If your child's teacher needs to meet with you, you should have already recieved your conference time.  We have several other events approaching at Norman.  For a full list of upcoming events be sure to check out our school calendar.

  • Fall Fest

    Posted by Anita Billiot on 9/11/2018 7:00:00 AM

    I'm so happy to announce that M. E. Norman's Fall fest will be on Friday, November 9, 2018. We recently held a parent/teacher meeting to discuss our Fall Fest.  We will send out more at a later date, but here are some of the things we discussed.


    1.  We debated whether or not to continue purchasing shirts. Another option brought up was a water bottle instead of shirts. The reasoning for this debate is cost. Do the parents want to pay to buy another T-shirt, or is there something else that the parents would rather purchase?


    2. Food: Food will remain the same with hamburgers/ cheeseburgers, grilled onions, and Frito pies. We may sell desserts as well as have the Cake Walk. We will still have the grade level drink donations.


    3. Due to parish policy, we can no longer have bouncy jumps at school. So we will need games to replace these activities. We will keep most of the old games and add some new ones. New games include but are not limited to (and not set in stone) fish game without real fish, digging for gold game, baseball toss, ring toss, and miniature golf.

    4.  Donations: For the new games, Ms. Thomas will need some donations. The donations we need will be 20+ Wine bottles (empty and washed), 20+ longneck beer bottles (empty and washed), plastic swimming pools, soda cans (empty and washed), 2+ Hawaiian punch bottles (empty and washed)

    5.  We need volunteers to help grill burgers, assemble burgers, set up the day of Fall Fest, etc. We are also hoping to get MCHS seniors to work the booths.


    If you have any other suggestions or comments of Fall Fest, please contact Ms. Thomas at kethomas@stmaryk12.net or call the front office at 985-384-0877.

  • Lots of Resources for You and Your Children

    Posted by Anita Billiot on 12/11/2017

    We have been making several changes to the website, so I wanted to share some of the things you can find on here.  We have LOTS of resources that can help you and your child.

     One of the newest resources that I liated is on the blue bar at the top of our site.  It's a link for Spelling City for our Reading Wonders spelling words.  When you click on that link.  Go to your child's grade level and click on the link that says "2014 Reading Wonders/On Level Spelling."  It will give you a list of the Lessons that we have throughout the year.  http://www.spellingcity.com/reading-wonders.html


    We have tons of other resources listed under the link at the top of the page that says "academics."  There should be something here for children of all ages.    https://www.stmaryk12.net/domain/242


    Finally, if you look under the "Faculty" tab, each grade level has a page.  Within the grade level pages, each teacher has linked some of their favorite websites.  In many cases, the teachers have put links to the same webpages and resources that they are using in the classroom.  Faculty Link


    There are many more resources on our website for both parents and teachers.  When you get a chance I hope you take the time to explore the links.  Any questions you have about our website can be directed to our webmaster.

  • FEMA Disaster Fraud

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 2/7/2018

    If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has someone called and asked you to verify your FEMA registration?

    Multiple complaints have been filed by people who have been scammed by thieves pretending to be employees of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  These include survivors from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as victims of the California wildfires.

    • Victims have received phone calls asking them for personal information--even though they didn't apply for FEMA assistance.
    • When victims do try to apply for FEMA assistance, they discover that someone has already applied using their names because they receive a "verification error."
    • People claiming to be FEMA inspectors have been asking to gain entry to damaged homes. These individuals wear a shirt or jacket with the FEMA name, but they do not possess a FEMA photo ID badge.
    • Inspectors ask for money before starting an inspection. (Federal and state workers will never ask for or accept money.

    If you or someone you know may have fallen victim to or have knowledge of these types of frauds, visit the FEMA Disaster Fraud page for more information.
