Superintendent's Message

 Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year - WE ROAR. TOGETHER.

We are leaving a year of Protecting the Pride; however, that theme is something that we will always continue. The words “Norton Pride” are prevalent in this community, and the phrase will always be a part of what we do.  As the district looks to continue academic, extracurricular, and support services to each and every student, we transition into the theme for the 2019-2020 school year: We Roar. Together. As our 5-Year Strategic Plan will reveal, the district is moving into an educational time period of foundational knowledge, well-rounded content, and social emotional learning supports that benefit the “Whole Child.” Our school community will read “Whole Child” consistently for the next few years, and it is an important component of both our strategic plan and next year’s theme. Our staff will work diligently and consistently on two student characteristics that we believe are healthy for our students — Strength and Warmth. These will anchor our team’s approach to supporting and equipping each child in a manner that benefits them most. We Roar represents our Strength, and Together represents our Warmth. There is an excitement that many of our students will have their best year under this umbrella of guidance and support.  

The Norton City School District is also pleased to reveal our 5-year plan this year. You will see this visually as the year unfolds, but we have intentions of strong community discussions so that each of you fully understands the goals of the plan. In addition to the components listed, Educator Leadership and Support, as well as Fiscal Resources and Facilities work, will be vital to us.  

As always, if you ever have building or district questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We hope your family has an outstanding school year.

Mr. Dana Addis, Superintendent
