On Monday, September 17, Norge came together in the gym to celebrate Constitution Day and what it means to us today. The SCA officers led the program with speeches about the Constitution and its relevance to our Norge community. Special guest Teri Toepke, former 4th grade teacher at Norge, dressed as Miss Sally Blakeney and read the Preamble, pausing at each vocabulary word so the SCA officers could explain it in ‘elementary’ terms. The Advanced Recorders, led by Mrs. Turner, also played various patriotic songs. The whole school recited the Norge Pledge:
As a member of the Norge Elementary School Community:
We will respect all people and their property,
Walk safely and quietly,
Never harm another person with words or actions,
And strive to keep the school clean,
So we can all focus on learning and being successful.
