Norman modernization project kicks off

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 by Katy McElroy

This Thursday, May 23, parents, students, teachers and staff will celebrate the groundbreaking of the Norman Elementary Modernization Project and invite the entire community to join them. The 12 months of construction aims to turn the school into a 21st-century learning space, characterized by the smart use of space, integration of technology, collaborative workstations, outdoor learning spaces and student mobility in the classroom. “We are inviting all former students of Norman and Sims elementary schools to attend the groundbreaking. This is the next step in a bold new beginning for both the school and our community,” said Norman Principal Wendy Mills in a press release. Mills serves as principal of the currently co-located Sims and Norman schools. The celebration kicks off at 9 a.m. with a student parade from Sims to Norman and will be followed by a ceremony at the Norman campus at 9:30. Then, a community construction meeting will be held at Norman at 10:15 a.m., where the public is invited to meet the architects in charge of the project and discuss the construction schedule and the plan for housing students in an alternative location (if needed).
