    • CONGRATULATIONS TO THE GIRLS SOCCER TEAM ON WINNING STATE!!! What an amazing accomplishment!!

     

    • Due to Maker May, the library will be closed during both lunches May 13th through May 16th.
       

    • Seniors

      When you are done with your last final please bring your NPS-assigned MacBook and charger, with all pieces, to the iTech Window in the library.  We will start accepting Senior MacBooks on Monday, May 20th daily until Friday, May 24th. Any laptops not turned in by 4 pm on May 24th may be disabled. Please ensure that all parts of your charger are turned in when you turn in your MacBook. This includes the primary charging brick, the extension cord, and the connector head.

      If you are interested in purchasing a MacBook similar to the one you have used (model A1466), NPS has worked with our partners at Apple to get educational pricing for NPS families for comparable MacBooks.  Follow the following link for that option: https://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop.  NOTE: This does not mean that you will be able to purchase your current NPS MacBook. We are not able to sell the district-owned devices to any student this year.

      Also, as you prepare to leave, you may have items in your school email and Google Drive that you would like to be able to access in the future. Please plan on copying these items out of email and/or drive, as your account will be inactivated thirty (30) days after you leave the district.

Yearbook 411

    • Spring Pictures are Wednesday, April 24 in the FRAC.  Packets will be available to students, upon request, in their English classes or in the Publications room, C204.

       

       

    • IMPORTANT:  If any Senior did not get a “Gown Portrait’ or needs a retake of their existing photo, this is their last chance to have OSP (Oklahoma School Picturews) take their photo at the school (Sr picks are purchased after the proof has been reviewed online).  Seniors must have their phones with a QR reader (Snapchat works) so they can create the online account where the proof can be found.

       

       

    • ALSO-TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!:  Senior Ads are now past due and we have extended the deadline for a short time.  A mailer detailing the information on the design and purchase of Sr Ads will go out to the parents of current Seniors.  We will schedule a day where parents can bring photos that they would like to include in the Senior Ads and pay in person to our Josten’s yearbook reps.  They will have a booth set up in the Commons so parents can come in and deliver the material necessary to create the ads and pay at that time.

       

       

    • Please direct any questions, comments, or concerns to Scott Oglesby, soglesby@norman.k12.ok.us  Publication’s Adviser.



    • Due to overwhelming requests, THE DEADLINE FOR SENIOR AD’S HAS BEEN EXTENDED.  Senior Salutes are a great way for family and friends to congratulate students and share special photos and memories. Order forms can be found at jostens.com
