Earth Day and Mr. Potato Head

Kids love Earth Day.
This year we had some fun planting hair for Mr. Potato Head.
I've enjoyed this gang on my windowsill.
Today the Potato Heads come home with students.
These fellas are due for a hair cut!

Happy Earth Day!

Go Greece!

Norfolk Middle School Track and Field Day is scheduled for May 2.
Students are naturally antsy at the end of the school year, and who wouldn't be?  Having a field day allows them to go outside, have some fun, and run off their natural energy. Teams have been chosen and events planned.

The main rally point for school spirit during track and field week at the middle school is the hall-decorating contest. The whole idea behind the hall decorating is for students to show school spirit and get excited for track and field day. It's a way to get everyone pumped up. 
At the official opening assembly, each team drew a country to represent at the meet. Our team captain drew the country Greece. Our students are having fun traveling back in time to Ancient Greece and researching the early games.

We hope you will be able to join us at the high school track when Fifth Grade Team 1 competes in a number of sporting events. It's a fun and entertaining afternoon for everyone.
Go Greece!
