  • Everyone Counts! Statistics in Schools Week

    Posted by Norman Elementary Web Administrator on 3/14/2020 6:20:00 PM

    M.E.Norman Elementary is participating in the U. S. Census Bureau's Statistics in Schools (SIS) program to unite schools around the country in an effort to count every child in the 2020 Census. 

    The national census is conducted every 10 years. Data from this census is used to determine funding for many programs including special education, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, and school lunch assistance. 

    In mid-March, your family should begin receiving official Census 2020 mail with instructions on how to respond. By April 1, 2020, every home should receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:

    *Online
    *By phone
    *By mail


    M. E. Norman Elementary urges every family to participate. The Statistics in Schools flyer in English and Spanish can provide you with additional information for this important upcoming event. You can find these flyers in our PeachJar E-Flyers area.

    Well, Norman Elementary is off to the GREAT start for the new year.  Hopefully, everyone had a restful holiday.  I have a few important dates and reminders for the remainder of this month. 

    Our World's Finest Chocolate Sales has began.  Please support our students as they try to sell candy for this fund raiser.  On Tuesday, January 21st envelopes for Class Picture orders will go home.  the orders must be paid by February 12th in order for your child to get their class picture.  

    One more note for our second grade parents.  A note went home last Friday with information about the 2nd grade snack sales.  The snack sale will be the week of January 27th thru January 31st.  Please return the note if you are able to contribute.  

     

    As we enter the last half of the school year, we want to thank those students and parents that worked so hard to make the first part of the school year a successful journey for all.  Our teachers are working hard to provide engaging learning experiences and we continue this year.

  • M. E. Norman Achieves a "B" on It's Report card.

    Posted by M. E. Norman School Web Adminsitrator on 12/4/2018 5:30:00 PM

    School Report cards are in.  M. E. Norman is now a "B" School. 

    In addition, Norman Elementary has recieved two other distinguished honors.  We are a Top Gains School, and we are on the equity honor roll.  

    Top Gains schools are those schools demonstrating exceptional student progress earning an “A” for student progress, ensuring that students meet or exceed their learning goals each year. Top Gains schools must also not be persistently struggling with subgroups or student behavior.

    Schools on the equity honor roll are demonstrating excellence in serving economically disadvantaged students, students with disabilities, and/or English language learners. These schools also must not be persistently struggling with any student subgroups or student behavior.

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
