Hello Norton Families,
Thank you for visiting the Norton PTA website. Our goal is to enrich the environment for our children, families and community. It takes many volunteers to make that happen, and we cannot achieve our goal without the time and energy of parent volunteers like you! Check our website often to review the many volunteer opportunities -- we have options for everyone, whether you have time to help on a weekly basis in an ongoing role or can only spare a few hours to sign up during an event like the Book Fair. We need and welcome your help!
Throughout the year, we will communicate with the Norton community in a variety of ways. Each week, we share information about upcoming events and activities via the Norton Weekly Email (this email usually comes out on Tuesdays and is sent by Dianna Wash in the school office). We will also send flyers homes in your student's Wednesday folders -- please be sure to check this folder each Wednesday so you don't miss important information from PTA and the school!
We will share information on this website, as well as on the Norton PTA Facebook page (@NortonElementaryPTA) and on the grade-level Facebook pages. If you're not a member of the grade-level page for your student and would like to be added, please contact me or our Communications/Publicity Chair Dawn Schaffner at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We will do our best to keep you updated with what is happening in our PTA, our school and in our community. I look forward to working with you this year.
