Normangee ISD 2019 – 2020 School Calendar

The 2019-2020 school calendar has been approved and I wanted to take some time to point out some differences from previous years and allow some opportunity to bring some clarification to some changes.

Fall Semester

Christmas Break

Spring Semester

August 14 – December 20

December 21-January 6

January 7 – May 21

 

 

 

Thanksgiving Break

Spring Break

 

November 25-29

March 9-13

 

 

The majority of the change comes with added professional development days throughout the semester for our teachers.  These fall at the end of 6 week grading periods.  These days are teacher work days and student holidays.  The ability for our teachers to have dedicated time to assess data, plan engaging lessons, meet as professional learning communities and attend staff development sessions throughout the year will allow our teachers to provide higher level instruction to our students.  We are encouraging a growth mindset in our approach to education and these days will allow us to be constantly reflective of our strategies and approaches throughout the year. 

One of the new student holidays falls on Valentine’s Day.  We understand the importance and tradition that surrounds Valentine’s Day at Normangee ISD.  We will use Thursday, February 13th, to celebrate Valentine’s Day and will continue working with local businesses to coordinate delivery of flowers and gifts. 

As parents/guardians, we would like to encourage you to use these days to plan appointments that might previously have been scheduled during the school day, requiring your student to miss instruction.  The goal was to provide this calendar as far in advance of the upcoming school year as possible so families can plan accordingly. 

 

 

MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of Normangee Independent School District is to create a safe and secure learning environment that enables students to reach their maximum potential, to employ well trained, enthusiastic personnel, and to foster positive relationships among student, parents and the community.
