Thanks to mrs. Simons. My son still says chinken, turkey , water head when he is upset
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 27, 2010

Overall, this is a fine school. We have been lucky with great teachers and responsive, reasonable Principal and Assistant Principal. Some of the newer teachers and an admin staff are screamers. That is unfortunate. Hoping for mellowing of those or replacement.

Posted August 24, 2005

First I would like to give thanks to Dr. Shirley Neeley, Galena Park Independent School District Superintendent, for her envision of Normandy Crossing Elementary School. I was elated to know that my grandchild, Camaron Jacobs first year of school would be taking place in a brand new facility. Since opening their doors, Normandy Crossing Elementary has proven to be highly qualified as an academic environment. NCE is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do its personal best. The principal, faculty and staff are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The Administrative Assistant, Linda is kind and knows each student by name. She is a great example of a leader.
