Chromebook Info Sessions (6th-8th grades)

For the 2018-2019 school year, Hamilton County is providing all 6th – 8th grade students with their own assigned Chromebook through the 1:1 Technology Initiative. In order to be assigned a device, a parent or guardian must attend an informational session at the school (lasting approximately 30 minutes) and sign a technology contract. We will begin distributing the devices this week, and we have scheduled additional parent information sessions on: Thursday, September 20 at 5:30 PM in the Upper School Auditorium Friday, September 21 at 8:15 AM in the Upper School Auditorium We strongly encourage you or a family representative to attend one of these meetings, if you did not attend one of the previous parent information sessions. If you are unable to attend either session, or you have additional questions or concerns, please email Assistant Principal Jennie Starr, starr_j@hcde.org to arrange an alternative time to attend. We are very excited about the opportunities that this added technology will offer our students at Normal Park!

Kids First Coupon Book

From September 7 to 21, all Hamilton County elementary schools will unite in the Kids First coupon book campaign. This year, our goal is to sell 2500 coupon books and raise $17,500 for our school. We plan to use the proceeds for technology and for many hands-on materials for your child’s classroom. The cost of the book is still only $10 and it offers thousands of dollars in savings! Seventy percent of the funds raised will stay here at our school; the remainder will be used to pay expenses of the campaign and to support other educational programs coordinated by the Hamilton County Schools Fund for Excellence. This campaign is very important to our school. With your help, we can accomplish our goals and make it the most successful year ever!

Raptor ID system

The new Raptor System, the visitor check-in and check-out system, is now in place at both campuses. All visitors must bring a photo ID (driver’s license) to the office when checking in. Once your ID has been scanned into the system you will not have to go through this process again, but will need to simply check-in and check-out in the office. You will receive a sticker to wear while you are in the building. We appreciate your patience with our new system, but feel you understand that safety is a priority for all of our NPMM students and staff.
