Spirit Days

Christmas Character Day - December 21, 2022

Let it not be said that our school doesn't have its share of characters. The outdoor temperatures on Day 3 of Christmas Spirit Week were in keeping with the North Pole theme so we had fewer kiddos than usual today ... but we still saw several who showed their Christmas Character spirit. Tomorrow -- need we remind you? -- is the last day of school before Christmas break. Wear your comfy, cozy pajamas. And feel free to keep wearing pjs until school resumes January 9th :)

Christmas Dinner - December 20, 2022

Santa made a quick stop at our school today much to the delight of our students. Everyone who attended our Christmas dinner was given a ticket when they entered the gymnasium. After finishing our amazing home-cooked turkey/ham dinner with all the trimmings (thank you to Kat's Koncession for preparing and our parent volunteers for serving), Ms. Neufeld started drawing ticket numbers and the squeals of excitement -- and groans of being one digit off -- began as students came forward to receive a gift. Thank you to all our student volunteers who wrapped all 55(!) gifts and filled many more goodie bags so that every student left with a full tummy and a candy bag in hand.

This was really a team effort as students pitched in to set up the tables and clear the gymnasium afterward. Mrs. Anderson and her team created beautiful centrepieces to use again next year. There was live music throughout and a short carol-singalong at the end.

One student made a point of telling our principal Mr. Pittman, "I've never been to a dress-up formal dinner before!"

At T.A. Norris Middle School, we pride ourselves on being family and our Christmas dinner was truly a celebration of how much we value our staff and students.

May this Christmas season be one of joy and celebration, however you choose to honour it.

Formal Day - December 20, 2022

On our second day of Christmas Spirit Week ... our students (who are already quite smart) dressed smartly! Hooray for Formal Day and a wee bit of photo editing :)

Christmas Hats & Sweaters - December 19, 2022

What is the most festive thing to wear this time of year? It's not the Christmas sweaters. It's not the Christmas hats. It's the smiles from ear to ear as we celebrate all that the season has to offer. <img src="https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/t7/1/16/1f384.png" alt="
