Fourth Grade "I Survived" Project

How do 4th graders demonstrate their knowledge in narrative writing while incorporating
Social Studies and technology? They follow the inspiration of  Lauren Tarshis, author of the
popular "I Survived" book series. Our 4th graders produced their very own "I Survived" 
primary artifacts using digital learning tools to detail their experiences during the COVID-19
Pandemic. Admire some of the following exemplary book covers made by our very own

Desk/Locker Clean Out and Materials Collection at NES

As we approach the end of the academic year, the staff at NES has been working diligently to create a quick and efficient way for families to acquire student belongings from desks/lockers and for the school to collect district/teacher owned materials (books, Chromebooks, etc.). Please take note of the following details.

  • Teachers are currently working to put together a red bag for each student. These bags will contain student belongings from desks and lockers as well as some projects/assignments left in the classroom. The bag will also contain the student’s final report card for the year and any inhalers/epi-pens stored in the clinic. All other medications can be signed out during the pick-up times listed in the next bullet point.

  • These bags are being arranged alphabetically (by the student’s last name) in the gymnasium or cafeteria. They will be available for pick up on Tuesday, May 26-Friday, May 29 from 2-6pm, using the schedule below.

    • Tuesday, May 26 - Students whose last names begin with A-E

    • Wednesday, May 27 - Students whose last names begin with F-L

    • Thursday, May 28 - Students whose last names begin with M-R

    • Friday, May 29 - Students whose last names begin with S-Z

  • When families come to pick up student bags, they will also have the opportunity to return teacher or district owned items (books, textbooks, Chromebooks, etc.). Additionally, the school will collect any library books the students might have from the Book Mobile. If you are returning a Chromebook, please make sure you bring the charger. You'll also want to make sure you drop off the Chromebook at the building of your youngest child.

As always, feel free to reach out to Mr. Sackett, Principal, ([email protected]), Mr. Oswald, Assistant Principal, ([email protected]) or your child’s teacher with any questions.

Summer Reading Club! Let's go "Exploring with Flat Stanley!"

Summer Reading Club! Let's go "Exploring with Flat Stanley!"

Due to circumstances out of our control, we are offering a free virtual summer reading program, rather than our traditional face-to-face program. As a result, we will be using a Google Classroom/Meet platform as our method of communication with the students.

Our theme this year is “Exploring with Flat Stanley.” 

Each Wednesday, beginning June 17,  we will meet the students in our Google environment from 10 am – 12 noon, and share adventures and activities with them. Activities are designed with minimal to no assistance from you!

Registration can be submitted one of two ways:

  1. Printing the attached form, or picking it up outside of Norton Primary & Norton Elementary Schools, and returning it to the building when picking up your child's possessions.
  2. Use the following link to complete the registration online.  https://forms.gle/QNL5kreXzSiJWsJd7

The teachers will confirm registration via email so please be sure to complete the form in its entirety.
