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 end of the school year has arrived. The last day of school is Monday, May 27. The procedures for the last day of school is outlined below.
Students are to report to school between 7:30 and 8:00 am to pick up report cards.
Breakfast will not be served on this day.
If a student arrives with their parent or an adult, they will walk to the classroom. Students will get their report card at that time and the student may leave.
Walking students must remain in their classroom until the 8:30.
Bus students must remain in their classroom until the bus dismissal announcement at approximately 8:30.
In order for students to recieve their report cards all student debts must be paid in full by May 24.
Hopefully, you and your child will have a great summer. Please remember to have your child continue reading throughout the summer. Their Clever passwords should be available throughout the summer. Moby Max is a great summer time learning tool for those that need extra help in math.
School supply list for the next school year will be posted here when they are available.
Enjoy your summer!!! We will see you back here on August 8, 2019.
The End of the School year is approaching fast. Please check the calendar to check out some important dates this month. Several classes are preparing for field trips. I posted most of the trips on the calendar, but keep in touch with your child's teacher if you know of other incoming trips.
We are really excited about our Family Picnic Day here at Norman. The picnic will be held on May 17th from 11:00 to 2:00. Field Day, Awards Ceremonies, and Graduations will be held on the last week of school.
As the end of the year approaches, I will be putting up a notice with the procedures for the last day of school. I'll also be postig next year's school supply list as soon as possible.
Change in Pickup Procedure for Car Riders Today (Thursday, April 4)
Posted by District on 4/4/2019 10:00:00 AM
At the request of the Morgan City Police Department, Norman Elementary students who are car riders will be bused to the Tampico's parking lot entrance to facilitate pickup. Children will be accompanied by teachers who will stay with them until they are picked up by parents any time after 2:30 PM.
Street flooding in the area of Norman Elementary is preventing normal pick-up procedures.

Several grade levels have field trips coming up this month and next month. Please check your child's folder each day for more information and permission slips.
M. E. Norman Introduces Breakfast in the Classroom
Posted by Anita Billiot on 2/6/2019 8:00:00 AM
The last several weeks our students have been eating their breakfast in the classroom! We have a message from St. Mary Parish Food Service Supervisor, Mrs. Claire Guarisco.
"M. E. Norman Elementary was chosen to pilot a new breakfast program called Breakfast in the Classroom. Since the program began on January 22, 2019, all students have had the opportunity to eat a well-balanced, nutritious complimentary breakfast every day in their classroom. Breakfast is provided at no charge to all students in the school. As students enter school, they receive a breakfast in a bag to take to their classrooms to enjoy. After the students have enjoyed their breakfast, which takes approximately 10 minutes, they are ready to learn! Breakfast participation rates have more than doubled with the start of the new breakfast service."
A big thanks goes out to all of our cafeteria staff for making this such a smooth transition into our new breakfast program.
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday break. This NEW Year has brought more changes to Norman Elementary. We would like to welcome 3 new teachers to our Norman Team. Our new kindergarten teacher is Ms. Ocean Armond. Ms. Armond is a recent graduate of Nicholl's State University. Ms. Hayley Spanier is our new first grade teacher, and Ms. Beth Landry is our new Resource teacher. All of our new teachers have been working hard to ensure that our students are in a productive learning environment. The students have done a wonderful job adapting to their new teachers and new schedules.
In other news, we will be starting our World's Finest Chocolate Sales on January 14th. The sale will continue through February 4th. Please consider supporting our school by purchasing your World's Finest Chocolate from our students.
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.
The M. E. Norman Scholastic Book Fair is happening this week at Norman. A schedule was sent home for the Grandparent. Please check the schedule to see what day your child's homeroow will have their lunch. Grandparents are allowed to shop at the bookfair with their grandchildren after the lunch. If you miss the grandparent's lunch, the students are still allowed to shop during their regular library time, before school, or at recess time.
Wow! This has been a busy month. Thanks to all the parents and staff that worked hard to make our Fall Fest a success. Although we had to move the games inside, I think it worked out well for everyone involved. I hope you all had a great time.
We have one more week of school before we are out for the Thanksgiving break. We’re already half way through the 2nd nine weeks period. Progress reports will be going out on the 14th of November.
We hope that everyone is enjoying their summer vacation. However, I know it's that time of year where a lot of parents will start preparing for the upcoming school year. In order for you to start preparing and finding those great deals on school supplies, we are posting our school supply lists for the 2018 - 2019 school year.
In her article Make It a Scam-Free Vacation, Lisa Lake from the Federal Trade Commission offers steps to prevent your dream vacation from becoming a nightmare.
First: Do your homework.
In addition to getting recommendations from family and friends, do some online research on travel companies, hotels and agents with the words scam, review, or complaint.
Consider extra costs. Resort fees and taxes can add $50 or more to a nightly hotel cost.
Before you book, read the cancellation and refund policies for any destination.
Only buy travel insurance from a licensed agent.
Bring a copy of the trip confirmation details, including the rate and extras you were promised.
Second: Be travel smart.
Don't pay for "prize" vacations. No real company will ask you to pay for a prize--and be careful about booking with a resort or timeshare offer, which may include the need to pay taxes or fees, plus high-pressure sales pitches.
Don't sign anything until you know what you are getting.
Use a credit card, which gives you more protection than paying with cash or a debit card.
Third: Protect your identity.
Take only the IDs and credit/debit cards you really need. Also, make copies of these, too, and carry the copies in a separate location so that you can more easily report lost or stolen cards.
Bring a copy of your insurance card.
Don't assume a Wi-Fi hotspot in a hotel, restaurant, or airport is secure. Avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information or use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.
