We are committed to providing a safe environment where every child can grow and learn. We recognize that every child is unique and needs an enriched, stimulating environment in which to explore and grow. In partnership with parents, we strive to promote a quest of discovery in the minds of our children. The Norton School community will assist students to become life-long learners who are compassionate, productive citizens.
-Rigorous Academic Curriculum: Our 3rd thru 5th grade students regularly score
above the state average on Michigan State Assessments (MEAP). Our curriculum is
continuously being refined to best meet state content standards. We strive to keep
parents well informed of their students' progress.
-Student Recognition: Our student recognition program in which staff recognize
student efforts in academics, attendance, achievement and effort on a daily,
weekly, and monthly basis.
-Student Council: Representatives from three grade levels meet with an advisor
every other week to discuss students' concerns, plan school-wide projects and
events, and provide a forum for student input when making decisions for the student body.
-Active Parent Involvement: Volunteering in classrooms, helping on PTO projects,
attending conferences, serving on committees, taking part in school/family activities
are all opportunities for parents to be part of their child's education
-Student Assistance Program: Focusing on educational concerns and improving the
quality of learning within the school environment, our team of professionals meets
every other week to discuss student needs. The intent of the program is to provide
a framework for assisting students experiencing academic, social, behavioral or
emotional problems by enlisting the support and involvement of all Norton Staff
-Commitment to Learning Healthy Habits: Recognizing that our children need
more than reading and writing skills to succeed in life, Norton's students and staff
are committed to developing habits for healthy bodies and minds. Learning about
healthy eating, exercise and good decision-making, our students will learn habits
that will be useful their entire life.
