C. H. Norton sure knows how to make a difference...and have fun!
CH Norton - February 1, 2017
Last Week, students from several classes encouraged all CH Norton students to “Get Connected” to the world beyond their classrooms with an engaging assembly featuring songs, poems, and stories. Ms. Shutt’s Grade 2 and Mr. Penrose’s Grade 3 classes performed the song “Imagine the Impossible” while Mrs. Acheson’s Grade 2/3 class read an acrostic poem featuring an important message for each of the letters in G-E-T C-O-N-N-E-C-T-E-D. Finally, Mrs. Morris’ Grade 3/4 class created a dramatic performance of the story Butterfly Park. Combined, all students at CH Norton have been encouraged to “Get Connected” with the world beyond their classrooms whether it’s within the larger school, their community, or the wider world. Students were also encouraged to be positive role models within those different communities and to always consider how they and everyone are connected to nature and the environment. Great job Grade 2’s, 3’s, and 4’s and thank you to each teacher for organizing the assembly. So, come on CH - GET CONNECTED!!!

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.

Do you know someone who goes above and beyond to support students in the Halton District School Board? The INSPIRE Awards have been created to recognize them. Inspiration can come from a diverse range of actions. Anyone in the HDSB community can nominate or be nominated – families, neighbours, related organizations, staff, students, and school volunteers. This award will be given to an individual or group, formally or informally associated with the Halton District School Board who support our students and their achievements through exemplary caring , initiative, innovation and creativity. This new award has been created by Trustees of the Halton District School Board. Inspire Award nominations will be reviewed by a committee of Trustees each month during the school year. Learn how to nominate someone for an Inspire Award at www.hdsb.ca/inspireawards
