Vet's Day 9

Norfolk Junior High Staff and Students took time to celebrate our veterans November 10th. Many students entered a contest about what Veteran’s Day means to them. We got to see the winners with their amazing works of art. First Place was Maddox Weckerle Dietz with her drawing of soldiers at Iwo Jima. Second Place was Pareena Ponniah with her drawing about Heroes In Disguise. Third Place was Kirsten Schmuecker with a poem entitled Veteran’s Day. NJHS Band, Orchestra, and Choir all performed patriotic songs. We had a trivia contest with students and staff, and we heard In Flander’s Fields from Kelcie Painter. Thank you to all Veterans for your sacrifices!

Todd Green Performs At NJHS

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The Norfolk Arts Center provided the Junior High with some instrumental entertainment on October 11th.  Todd Green came and wowed all of us with his amazing instruments. We learned a lot about the instruments from different countries. They not only look different, they sound different, and most times you hold them differently to play them. Thank you Norfolk Arts Center for bringing Todd Green to the Junior High!

Mrs. Gentrup’s High Ability Learners (HAL) class spent a unit learning how to individually control LEDs in an e-textile circuit while building an interactive plush creature.

They used the LilyPad series in the circuit to turn different LEDs on and off. Using the E-Sewing to connect circuits, they examined how buttons and switches behave differently to build & create a plush creature with light-up features.  The students then designed each monster with a personality.  They created a super hero, Pennywise the Clown, Donald Trump, cartoon character, lettuce,  a football player and lots more.
