Kindergarten Adventures: Our little scholars have been on an exciting journey into the world of plants! They've mastered the essentials - the four things plants need to thrive and the basic facts about roots, stems, leaves, and seeds. Today's buzzworthy lesson was all about the incredible bees! They discovered the crucial role these pollinators play in collecting nectar and pollen. To wrap up the class, our kindergarteners turned into busy "bees" themselves, pollinating flowers and experiencing firsthand the magic of nature. #KindergartenLearning #PlantLife #BusyBees #HandsOnEducation
Kids in the Kitchen - Christmas Cookies with the 6th grade on December 4th. Students in the 6th grade could participate in making Christmas cookies for our Kids in the Kitchen Culinary Arts Educational Opportunity. We made 4 different types of Christmas cookies. Students learned how to crack an egg, measure ingredients, use a mixer and boil on top of the stove. For many of the students, this was the first time they had ever done this. The students were able to take home a platter of the cookies they made, received a certificate and were able to keep their paper chef hats. A fun time was had by all!

Our talented young minds showcased their brilliance in the final Knowledge Bowl Meet on Thursday Nov. 30, and we couldn't be prouder! Out of 24 teams, our team secured an impressive 2nd place! The competition was fierce, but our kids held their ground and achieved a fantastic score of 72 points. What's even more exhilarating? They triumphed with just a one-point lead over the third-place team. Talk about a nail-biting finish! A huge shoutout to our brilliant students for their hard work, dedication, and exceptional performance. Your knowledge, teamwork, and passion for learning truly set you apart.

WORKING TOGETHER FOR A BETTER TOMORROW The newly formed Norwood Young America Community Fund (NYACF) recently made a $200 contribution to the Central Elementary School Raider Room at Central Elementary. The Raider Room began in 2018 when a group of teachers saw kids sitting in the lunchroom without a snack and took action to find a way to ensure all can have the basics needed to help them succeed in school. Since that humble start, the Raider Room has added clothes, shoes, boots coats, and school supplies to list of items available. The Raider Room will use the NYA Community Fund donation to buy shoes and winter boots.

Congratulations to the 2023 Congressional App Challenge winners for Minnesota's 6th Congressional District: Rebecca Sandeen and Emily Romero Their app called Accessify: is an app designed to assist deaf and hard of hearing individuals to communicate their needs to others. Rebecca and Emily designed this app as part of the Technovation Challenge. The Congressional App Challenge is an official initiative of the U.S. House of Representatives, where Members of Congress host contests in their districts for middle school and high school students, encouraging them to learn to code and explore computer science. Each participating Member of Congress selects a winning app from their district, and each winning team is invited to showcase their winning app to Congress during the annual #HouseOfCode festival at the US Capitol. This year there were 3,645 original applications submitted and of these 374 of them were chosen by members of Congress participating in the challenge.
