Norton ES Media Center
Welcome to the Norton Elementary School Media Center!
Read, Read, Read!
Mrs. Baccus and Mrs. Moeller work together to support the school's curriculum and instructional goals. We build collaborative relationships with the students and staff by emphasizing and providing quality resources while encouraging reading across all content areas.
Mission and Vision
The Norton Media Center strives to provide a safe and inviting environment that encourages the entire school community to access materials in a variety of formats for knowledge and enjoyment. The media center includes resources which support Gwinnett County's AKS and the Georgia Performance Standards, as well as the Common Core Standards and is a place where everyone is welcome. A few of the media center’s goals are to promote students' interest in reading and learning, teach students strategies needed to access information, and develop student’s abilities to use information effectively.
