Welcome to the Castle!!! 

PTA Update

Norton PTA is currently evaluating planned Spring activities in the light of COVID-19 and school closings.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!  We will communicate as we know more.  

 

Knightathlon Update
We are incredibly sad to announce that we are canceling this year's Knightathlon.  We are so disappointed, but there are unfortunately too many variables at play to try and reschedule the event this year.  We will be in touch soon about processing refunds for registration fees.  If you choose not to have your registration refunded, we will use the registration fees to cover certain non-refundable expenses that we have incurred.  We appreciate your patience as we figure out the logistics of this situation and also hope that you will all sign up next year for the 2021 Knightathlon, which is sure to be better than ever!
 
Norton PTA AHS Scholarship Update
Due to the closing of Allen ISD schools until at least April 3, applicants can scan their entire application and submit it to Sarah Stuart at stuart.sarah.a@gmail.com. If a student does not have access to a scanner, students can take legible pictures of the application and email them. If an application is not readable, the student will be notified. Letters of recommendation can be emailed directly to Sarah Stuart from the recommender.  The deadline has been extended from March 27 until April 3. Contact Sarah Stuart (stuart.sarah.a@gmail.com) with any questions.
 

We also wanted to share the below information from the Allen Council of PTAs:

 

******

We are beyond proud of the support and love our District is providing all children (ages 1-18) with weekday breakfast and lunch. Please encourage anyone you know who needs a meal for their child to utilize this program. Again, you do need to bring your child(ren) with you, but no information is required to receive the food. This is for ALL children in Allen, ages 1-18. Click here for details on pick up location and times.

 

While we all want to be able to support our District with monetary, food and volunteer donations, unfortunately, the District is unable to accept these types of donations. So, what can we do?

Fortunately, our community has a wonderful support organization that is set up to help. Allen Community Outreach (ACO) has transitioned all support to focus 100% on emergency support. They offer two primary services: financial and food.

  • Financial Services: Financial support to help those in need with rent, utilities, etc.
    There are limited qualifications to receive this help. ACO is focused on helping families stay in their homes during this challenging time. For utilities, you must be a TXU or CoServ customer. If you need assistance, please contact ACO directly by visiting their website, www.ACOCares.org.
  • Food Pantry: Distribution style effort to provide food in a grab-and-go environment. You must be a resident of Collin County to benefit from ACO’s food pantry.

While there are many things we can do, we encourage you to make a donation (monetary or food) to ACO, or any other food bank of your choice. This is the best option for families in Allen, and the surrounding areas, to supplement the breakfast and lunch support from the District. Please visit www.ACOCares.org to make a donation or click here for a list of most-needed food items that can be dropped off.
