Greetings from R.L. Norris Elementary School!
For more than 20 years, it has been my honor to be an educator in the McDuffie County School System. It is where I have had the opportunity to watch my own children learn and grow. I am the proud mom of four Thomson High School graduates and two future Thomson High School graduates.
My daughter, Megan, is the Gifted Coordinator for her school and blessed us with our first grandchild this past March. My oldest of the triplets, Matthew, graduated with his doctorate of physical therapy in May of 2019 and is currently practicing at Benchmark Physical Therapy. Christopher and Zachary graduated from the University of Georgia in 2017 with Engineering degrees. Chris is currently working for Club Car in Evans, Georgia. Zachary works for Fulghum Industries in Wadley, Georgia. The McDuffie County School System has well prepared each of them to be successful in their chosen fields, and I am so grateful for that!
As we begin this new 2019-2020 school year, I am thrilled to have our youngest two in the McDuffie County School system. Our son Jacob will be in the 10th grade at Thomson High School, and our daughter Abbie will be in the 7th grade at Thomson-McDuffie Middle School.
It is my desire that each of our students here at Norris be equally prepared for success in the careers that they will one day choose. The NES faculty and staff are committed to working with our students, their parents, and our community so that each child can be successful in their academic endeavors. We strive daily to give each child the support needed in order to achieve great things!
We welcome your input about all that is happening at R. L. Norris Elementary School, and we seek your active participation in our efforts to increase student achievement. Thank you for allowing me to work with your children as we seek to make our school and this community the very best that it can be!
