—Submitted by a teacher


Posted February 11, 2005

'I LOVE NORRIS.' It's a great school for any student i should say myself. Norris has been around for many of years. My mom,dad,aunt,&uncles graduated from Norris. I graduated from Norris too. Now,my kids are there,and going to graduated from there also. Norris has strong, intellient,&caring teachers for the students&parents. Parent involvment is very important in a childs life. Ms.Jordan,the principal, is a concerned and involved leader for Norris. The students are so in order and well mannered. They are well feed. And taught to learn. I will always keep Norris in my heart...
