Norway Junior Public School

Family Update - May 21st

Track and Field

Today, more than 50 Norway students participated in the first Track and Field meeting of this year at Birchmount Stadium. From this qualifying meet, many Norway students will be moving on to the next level of competition, with a number of students placing first in their event. Congratulations to all participants and thank you to the many parent volunteers who helped to bring students back and forth at times that did not work for the school bus. Finally, a big thank you to the many staff members who spent their recesses, lunches and time after school to prepare students for this day. What a beautiful day for students to shine! 

Visit from MPP and School Trustee

Today our Member of Provincial Parliament, Mary Margaret McMahon, and our School Trustee, Michelle Aarts paid a visit to Norway. Our visitors were particularly impressed with the work throughout the school, inside and outside, highlighting the environment and the various ways we are taking care of it. From butterflies to the pollinator garden, to classroom and hallway displays, the pride and effort focussed on this learning is evident. Our guests paid a special visit to Room 206 to learn about their unit of study about plastic pollution, their beach clean-up and related art project, and the success of their anti-single use plastic advocacy. Congratulations!
