Superintendent’s Corner

April 20, 2015

The spring is moving about at a rapid pace as you see many of the fields being prepared and planted at a much earlier clip than what we experienced last year at this time. 

As I am writing this column, there are only 25 days of school left for students and it is at this point that we begin to get nervous as we are planning to get all the material in that we need  to cover before the school year comes to an end.  Before we know it graduation will be upon us.

Senior Honor Roll - On a very positive and uplifting beat, I want to congratulate our senior class on their academic successes they have experienced throughout their educational career here at Herman Norcross School.  The third quarter grading period reflects their academic endeavors as we can proudly say that all of our seniors qualified for the honor roll.  This is a wonderful accomplishment and one that I am sure not too many graduating classes can say.  Congratulations to our senior class!

Elementary Music Concert – Mark May 1st on your calendar as this will be the evening of our elementary concert.  The concert begins at 7:00.  There will be a cake walk following the concert to help support our preschool and kindergarten sensory room.  Come for a fun filled night of entertainment and maybe you may be one of the lucky ones to go home with a cake.

Preschool and kindergarten Round Up – We had our kindergarten and preschool round up and had a nice turnout.  The evening began with a potluck supper and then an informational session with the teachers in their classrooms.  If you are interested in our preschool or kindergarten program and were not able to attend, please give the school a call so we are able to register your child.  If you know of another family that may be interested, please pass this information onto them as well.

Small Group Band and Choir Contest – Congratulations to our small group band and choir participants as they achieved a number of superior ratings last week.  A superior is the best ranking you can achieve in contests.  This is a great accomplishment by the students and Mr. Hanson, band and choir director.

Testing – We are in the midst of our state testing sessions.  This is always a trying time for students and staff as these are high stakes tests that our students are required to take.  Parents please have your students stay well rested and well nourished as these are two researched areas that do help students do better on these tests

Make it a great week!
