The Norton Middle School Academic Challenge Team competed this past Saturday at a tournament in Copley. We had five separate teams compete against 20 other schools in the areas of math, history, geography, current events, and fine arts. One team of 7th and 8th graders came in second place in their bracket with a record of 5-2! All team members worked together, showed good sportsmanship, and were competitive in their respective brackets. Our next tournament will be in January in Smithville.

The canned food drive is wrapping up but don’t let that stop your holiday giving! This last summer, Texas was hit with a devastating hurricane that affected a lot of families. We have adopted a school in Texas to help some of those families. To raise money- NJHS members are putting on a competition among the grade levels to see who can create the longest paper chain link. Links are 50 cents each and available from any of your grade level teachers. Links are available to buy this entire week.
Norton High School has earned a spot on the College Board's AP Honor Roll. This award recognizes school districts that simultaneously achieved increases in access to Advanced Placement courses for a broader number of students and also maintained or improved the rate at which their AP students earned scores of 3 or higher on an AP Exam. In essence, during the 2016-2017 school year, Norton High School students had a higher participation rate during the AP testing sessions in May than in previous years and maintained or improved their scores. This is a great honor for our students, our teachers, our building leadership and our district. Only 32 school districts in the state, and only 447 districts in US and Canada achieved this honor.
