Dear Norris Middle School Families,
I would like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 school year! It is my honor, and privilege, to serve as the Principal of Norris Middle School. This school year starts my 14th year in the Norris School District, all of which have been at Norris Middle School. During those 14 years, I have taught 7th & 8th grade Science, served as Dean of Students, and have spent the past five years as Principal.
As we start the 20-21 school year with distance learning, I understand it will be a very different and unique situation for families. This pandemic has pushed us to our limits, but the Norris School District has not lost our focus. We are still committed to the learning and growth of your child(ren).
Last spring we all experienced challenges with distance learning, but now it’s a new year. The Norris Middle School staff has been working very hard to prepare for the first day of school, and your child will receive a high quality education that the Norris School District is known for delivering. The first few days of school will not be what we are used to, but I know we will “settle in” and get back to a structured, consistent routine. I am most excited for your child(ren) to start making connections again with their teachers and classmates (even though this will be done virtually).
Although this school year will look different, our mission is to continue to help your child(ren) be the very best they can be. I am looking forward to a great school year!
