On a Roll - October 28

There's more to school than getting good grades. That was the message from our principal, Jon Pittman, who spoke to our students at an assembly this morning stressing the importance of working hard, asking for help when needed, being kind to others, and having a positive attitude. He commended everyone for showing their #teamawesome spirit over the first two months of the school year and then invited teachers up to present certificates to students in their class who have demonstrated the successful workplace qualities of perseverance, patience and positivity. Congratulations, On a Roll recipients!

Grade 8 Citizenship Awards - June 23, 2022

Every year, the teachers at T.A. Norris Middle School nominate a small number of grade 8 students to receive Citizenship Awards which are presented at our year end Farewell ceremony. These awards are difficult to win and only the most deserving students receive them.

Students getting the award must work hard in school achieving grades that are appropriate to their ability level. Some winners are scholars and some are “grinders” but they all demonstrate a strong work ethic. Citizenship winners must also show leadership. This might include volunteering and committee work or just positive interaction within the classroom. Finally, the citizenship winners need to be well-liked by the students and the staff. Being cheerful, polite and helpful makes a person a good citizen.

In short, a student who wins a citizenship award at T.A. Norris is exactly the type of person who would make a great employee. Dependable, personable, helpful and hard working, our award winners would make any business manager proud.

This year, we are proud to announce that our Citizenship Awards went to Ella Bond, Matthew Burgoyne, Tracen Massier, and Farrah Villeneuve. Congratulations and thank you for shining your light at T.A. Norris Middle School!

Awards - June 21, 2022

Today we celebrated the non-academic achievements of members of the T.A. Norris Family. We began with the Joshua Poole Award which is given to a grade 5 French Immersion student who demonstrates extraordinary kindness.  This was followed by our athletic awards when coaches presented medals for sportsmanship, most improved, and athleticism in Volleyball, Basketball, Archery, Badminton, and Track & Field.  We then moved onto the coveted Athlete of the Year Awards and the presentation of Winit Certificates to students for extra-curricular involvement. It was so wonderful to see so many parents in the gymnasium celebrating with us today. Thank you to everyone -- coaches, parents, staff, and students -- for making T.A. Norris Middle School a wonderful place to work, learn, and grow!

Honour Roll Assembly - May 6, 2022

It was so great to be back in the the gymnasium this morning for a real live assembly again. We could feel the energy in the room as students received fist bumps from their teachers, applause from the entire student body, and -- maybe best of all -- saw so many parents in the audience! Congratulations to all the students who earned a place on the Honour Roll. Continue working hard and showing a positive attitude towards learning. We're proud of you!

Celebrating Success - February 9, 2022

This morning we celebrated academic success and the workplace qualities of perseverance, patience and positivity. Teachers in grades 5 - 8 were asked to name two or three students from each class who stood out for their "stick-to-it-ivenes" over the past few months. Congratulations to all who received an On a Roll certificate during our virtual assembly.

We then moved on to the Honour Roll certificates for the grade 7 and 8 students who achieved an 80% average or higher in their core subjects.  Special recognition was given to students who achieved Honour Roll with Distinction for an average of over 90%.

Well done, students! Keep up that amazing work.

On a Roll Assembly - October 15, 2021

Today we paid special tribute to a few students from each grade who put in the extra effort and positive attitude it takes to be successful in the workplace.
