What's Happening
Norway Elementary School, in collaboration with Great Start and Kiwanis leaders, has set a super goal of collecting gently used children's books to supply the Great Start Book Mailboxes throughout Dickinson County and Iron County. Please bring any books you have to donate to Norway Elementary School and drop them off in the container near the office. Thank you very much for your support of this program.
In generations past, students from elementary school up through high school walked or biked as their primary mode of transportation. Walking and biking to school is an opportunity for students to connect with friends, engage with neighbors, and gain a better understanding of the world around them. This year, we would like to urge students, parents, and families to consider walking or biking to school. According to the Center for Disease Control, students need 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Walking to and from school is a simple way to incorporate that activity into a daily routine. Physically active children tend to have better academic achievement, enhanced concentration, better classroom behavior, and a more well-developed sense of direction and orientation. While you and your student are preparing for the school year, think about ways that the both of you can start walking and biking together to and from school so you can enjoy these benefits too. We also want to urge parents and other drivers to keep an eye out for children who are walking or biking. Your careful attention can help create a safe environment for them to enjoy physical activity, spend time with their friends, and participate in the world around them.
