ebooks have been infused into the High School and Junior High Libraries! Students learned how to download them to their own devices during lunch and after school. Becky Lechner, (Jr. High) and Jody McQuillan from the high school have been working on adapting this into NPS’s library system for 2 years. Students can choose their selections from Baker-Taylor’s ”Magic Wall” linked to the Senior/Jr High Collection. They then can download the book for 2 weeks just like the “hard copy” book collection. This should offer our students access to e-books 24 hrs. a day extending into the summer. Many grants, businesses, and Foundations helped to make this possible. See the Norfolk Senior High Media web page for a list.

Mr. Hernandez’s Spanish 4 students learned about one of Mexico’s most unique celebration, “Día de los Muertos”( Day of the Dead). Students conducted research then took the information to create an “ofrenda” (oferring). Ofrendas were judged by several HS teachers and the winning ofrenda received an award. Pictured are the top 2 displays and winners of the project.
The Power and Energy class taught by Mr. Dale Coan and Mr. Kaleb Finch at Norfolk High are displaying their Rube Goldberg Machine project in the forum. They were to design a simple machine that will knock off a ping pong ball off a golf tee in a minimum of 6 steps following certain requirements and restrictions.
In the month of July, NHS Book Club had a Wild Summer Excursion. We began at the Downtown Coffee Company with some caffeine and sugar then tried to read relax and refresh. (But we were too excited to see each other and spent most of the time chatting). We then slipped into the Norfolk Public Library and learned about their Young Adult Book Club and peaked at their great young adult book selection and several students signed up. We then went to the High School and picked up the 2 iPads that have been generously donated to Book Club by The Norfolk Foundation, that were used to help search for treasure in the form of the GEOCACHED map coordinates hidden all around the Norfolk Area. We were not very good sleuths so decided to video record our excursion with the iPads and maybe record a book review or two. Our exploration took us to our great Norfolk Downtown treasures. As we wandered through L & M Antiques, Treasures second hand store, and found our way to Bordman’s Furniture and Pawn we found many treasures to share. Members were ready to cool off by that time, so we checked into our room at the Country Inn and dove right into the pool.(While Mrs. McQ read her book). Later we enjoyed an awesome dinner at Bailey’s, a scary movie, lots of giggles, book discussions, and games.
