GREAT FOR SUMMMER PRACTICE! We use this site for all of our students in first throught fifth grades! Great for the math concepts. Students should be able to use the password that was given to them throughout the school year.
The procedures for the last day of school here at M. E. Norman Elementary have been established. The last day of school is Friday, May 25. Students are to report to school between 7:30 and 8:00 am to pick up their report cards. Breakfast will not be served on this day.
Students, with a parent, may pick up their report card and leave immediately. Parents may park in the front of school in the parking lot and along the street area. Parents must walk with their child to the classroom to receive their report card.
Students that walk to school will remain in their classroom until 8:30 at which time they will be dismissed and receive their report card.
Students may also be dropped off, in the car rider line, between 7:30-8:00 am. Car rider students will be dismissed at 8:30.
Buses will continue to run and pick up students, from school, at approximately 8:30 am.
In order for students to receive their report cards all student debts must be paid in full by May 25.
It has been a pleasure working with you this school year. Have a wonderful and safe summer!
Teachers and Staff Appreciation is this week has been great. We have had some wonderful surprises throughout the week. On behalf of all of us here at Norman we would like to say "Thank You" to all of the PTO members, parents, students, and local businesses that have been so thoughtful and generous this week. You all have made us feel truly appreciated!
The end of the school year is approaching really fast. The students will be done testing early this month. We are sure that most of them did their very best.
We have several events coming up here at M. E. Norman that I wanted to mention. We are really excited about our family picnic that is planned for May 17th. After having our students work so hard all year long, it will be a great recreational activity for them. Also, several classes have field trips planned. Most of the field trips are listed on the M. E. Norman Elementary Calendar. The Pre-K and Kindergarten graduation will also be later this month, as well as the Awards Ceremonies for the other grade levels. These dates are listed on our calendar as well.
Perhaps one of the things the students are looking forward to the most is the last day of school. May 25th is report card day. Later this month, I'll be posting some procedures that will be in place for that day.
It's hard to believe that April is already in full swing. Hopefully everyone enjoyed their spring break. We have only 34 school days left in this school year. I just thought I'd share a few things that are going on over here at M. E. Norman this month.
Most importantly, testing time has arrived. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have been working hard all year. They are ready. Testing dates for 4th grade are as follows: April 10th through 12, and April 24th through 26th. Fifth Grade will be testing from April 10 through April 12th, April 17th through April 19th and April 30th. Thrid Grade testing begins on April 30th as well.
The first and second grade classes are planning field trips this month. The students that have been working hard all year long are being rewarded with a trip to the Wendell-Williams Aviation and Cypress Sawmill Museum in Patterson. The first Grade has a field trip schedule for April 17th. 2nd Grade has a Field Trip Scheduled for April 18th.
One final reminder, progress reports will be coming out on April 25, 2018.

Literacy & Dr. Seuss Week - February 26- March 2, 2018
Excitement is building around M. E. Norman’s celebration of Literacy Week and children’s author Dr. Seuss. The goal of the special celebration is to help students strengthen their literacy skills and become better prepared for academic success. Students are encouraged to share a book with someone and make a difference in their school and family. Below are a few exciting events taking place at our school. We hope that you will take this opportunity to support reading in your homes and have your child/children participate in our school‐wide activities listed below.
Our pre-k and kindergarten students are working hard to be ready for our Krewe of Norman Parade on Friday, February 9, 2018. The parade will start at 2:00 on Friday afternoon. The students are scheduled to parade in the front of our school. However, we do have a “Plan B” in place in the event that it rains.
UPDATE: Due to the expected rain, the parade will be at 9:30 on Friday morning.
In other February news, our students are excited about our Black History Trivia Contest. The contest will continue throughout the month of February in honor of Black History Month. The students are presented with a Trivia question each morning. Each class has the opportunity to discuss and choose an answer. The class that has the most correct answers throughout the month will be the winning class.
Also, the make-up days for our time missed during our “snow” days has been set. Students will have school on Feburary 14th, February 15th , and Feburary 16th. In addition, the school board has also announced that on our scheduled parent/teacher conference day, the students will have school. Remember if you need to meet with your child’s teacher, you can contact them or call the office to set up a conference time.
Welcome to 2018! It’s so hard to believe that half of the school year is gone. We are looking forward to a successful 2nd half.

If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster, has some 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.
