The Norris PTO partners with Norris staff and families to provide various events and supplies that benefit all Norris children throughout the year. Last year alone, we were able to provide over $7,000 for classroom supplies and special projects, help sponsor class Halloween and Valentine parties, pay for school assemblies and staff appreciation activities, put together yearbooks and student directories, help fund Math, Literacy, and Multicultural night.
None of these would have been possible without the unfailing support of our Norris families. The Norris PTO is funded entirely by the events and fundraisers we hold throughout the school year. Since we receive no grants or assistance, we rely 100% on community support to provide these benefits for our school and children. We strive to provide a wide variety of fundraising opportunities and many are NO COST programs.
BOX TOPS for EDUCATION
Simply cut out the Box Tops and either affix them to the Box Tops form found in each PTO Newsletter or send them to school with your child. Make sure to include your child’s name and teacher with the Box Tops so your child is eligible for any current incentive contest. For information on participating products, visit Box Tops for Education. To print a copy of the current Box Tops submission sheet, check our Forms page. If you have questions about the current contests, incentives or Norris collection process, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
