C.H. Norton Shows Compassion

posted Dec 8, 2016, 11:28 AM by Rob Brown

On Wednesday November 30th, Mrs. Beam’s Grade 1/2 and Mrs. Broe-Vayda’s Grade 5/6 classes highlighted the character trait “compassion” during our third character trait assembly of the year. At the assembly, 25 boxes of gently used winter clothing donated by our CH Norton community were presented to thankful representatives of the Compassion Society in Burlington. The assembly also featured a “compassionate” remix of Yellow Submarine by the Beatles as well as a reading of the poem “Arturi’s Story” by Mrs. Broe-Vayda’s class. CH Norton’s next act of compassion is holiday toy drive for
The Darling Home, a home-like environment caring for children with complex medical needs in Milton.

Thank you CH Norton for showing compassion and Making a Difference!

Thanks For Supporting

Many thanks to our awesome families in the Norton community who helped support our food drive. Some of our Me to We student leaders and their families collected cans for the Salvation Army on Halloween as well. It was a week long food drive and as you can see in the picture of Miss Denomey’s incredibly class, C. H. Norton sure knows how to make a difference! We completely filled a van with non-perishable food items for individuals in our community. Bravo!!! To see the picture click on the link.

Character Traits

posted Nov 24, 2016, 10:31 AM by Rob Brown   [ updated Nov 24, 2016, 10:33 AM ]

This year at C.H. Norton we are focusing on monthly Character Traits. Teams of students and staff have signed up to lead our learning around each monthly theme that is representative of one of these traits. One of the activities the team does is to create a bulletin board in the front entrance way that advertises the Character Trait for the month. They also lead us through a culminating assembly at the end of each month where we come together as a learning community to share our learning related to each Character Trait. The slideshow above will be updated monthly with each bulletin board so you can follow along with our Character Trait learning. You can advance through the slides using the arrows in the lower left corner.
