Dear G.T. Norman Families:
We are having a terrific start to the 2018-2019 school year! Thank you for all you’ve done to
help make this happen! The students and staff are working hard to meet the high expectations
we have for student achievement and behavior at Norman Elementary. Clear lines of communication between home and school are critical to the success of your child. I would encourage
you to work with your child’s teacher on a daily/weekly basis to ensure student success.
Please review all papers and homework your child brings home.
Please inform the school of any changes in your address, phone numbers, or emergency contacts.
Try to volunteer and participate in school events as often as possible — this will make a positive
impact on your child’s learning!
Student attendance is critical. Please try to schedule appointments outside of school hours if possible.
Lastly and my favorite time was to read with your child every night!
Thank you for your continued support!
