Welcome to the Norfeldt Elementary School website! I hope you take time to explore the

website and learn more about our engaging and vibrant learning community.


Norfeldt School values our warm, welcoming environment and we embrace being a “school

family.” We are committed to academic and social-emotional growth, as well as, access to

and engagement in the arts. We strive to help each student reach his or her full potential by

fostering perseverance and motivation to learn. Over 360 students in grades K-5 benefit

from the commitment and expertise of our dedicated staff.


Parents are an essential part of the Norfeldt community. We have an active P.T.O. which are

devoted to supporting our school mission. We believe that the home-school partnership is

a fundamental part of students’ success and we value family input and participation.


Norfeldt staff developed the following mission statement to best represent our beliefs:

At Norfeldt Elementary School we foster independence, confidence, compassion, responsibility

and respect. We expect all students to apply their knowledge and persevere to achieve to their

highest potential and become productive citizens in our diverse global community.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions to make Norfeldt an

even better place!


Warm Regards,


Jen Derick
