The Norton School Council of Alumni and Friends

The purpose of the Alumni Council is to aid and support the goals of FCS through the participation in and communication of all relevant activities. During the year we host graduation celebrations, faculty/staff luncheon, and alumni receptions for past and present alumni. In addition to the many activities we coordinate and participate in, we raise money for student scholarships while serving as advocates on behalf of the School.

Council of Alumni and FriendsAs President of the Council, I am excited to tell you about some of the great things that are happening at your School. The members of the Council are proud to have been an important part in the exciting changes for over twenty years. As you know I am most excited to extend you an invitation to UA Homecoming 2014. Join us for our annual luncheon on Friday, November 7th, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the McClelland Park Building. You can email Julie Longstaff at and she will send you reservation information.

It will be a super time to greet "old" friends, to chat with professors and students, and to see first hand what is happening.
