Principal's Message

Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year.
My name is Jason Henderson, I am excited and honored to serve as the principal of Jack Norton Elementary School for a second year. The entire Jack Norton Elementary School staff looks forward to working with your child this school year. It is an exciting time for teaching our students meaningful things that will prepare them for college and career.
As er begin the new school year, I ask for your support and participation in educating your child. Please send your child to school every day, encourage your child to read for pleasure daily, communicate with your child's teacher and monitor homework and progress, asking them to share what they learned each day at school. Your child will be much more successful if you are actively involved in their education.
This summer we began mold abatement and upgrading the school facility by installing new propane powered boilers, a new HVAC system, a new cafeteria, new water system, and a new kitchen. These upgrades are not quite finished but will better help us to serve our students when complete. Our custodial staff has worked this summer to prepare the school for another school year and our teachers met over the summer to take advantage of professional learning opportunities.
I certainly look forward to seeing you during this school year. With your help, the entire Jack Norton Elementary School staff and I will do our best to make this year a meaningfully rewarding experience for your child. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
