GO 'FOURTH' AND LEARN
News from Mrs. Priebe's 4th grade class ...
On Thursday, the students were blessed by a classroom visitor from the Red Cross. Patti Gubbels, Norfolk Public School's newest School Board Member, spoke to the students about emergency preparedness. The students learned how to stay safe during winter storms, and they decorated their own pillowcase for emergencies. The students were encouraged to take these pillowcases home and create an emergency pack. Ideas for the contents of the pillowcase are listed in your child's booklet.
