Norge staff and students gathered in the gym on the morning of June 10, 2019 to celebrate Flag Day. The 2018-2019 SCA officers led their final program, reminding us of the importance and history of the American flag. Mr. Deriso, father of SCA President Kelsey and Navy Senior Chief, helped salute the flag, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.
The current SCA officers took turns teaching us about some of our most famous patriotic symbols such as the American Flag, Star Spangled Banner, Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, and Capitol Building. Students and staff also sang patriotic songs with Mrs. Turner and the Advanced Recorders.
Lastly, the SCA Officers congratulated the new 2019-2020 SCA Officers who were voted into office by their peers for next year:
- President – Brooke E
- Vice President – Ariana L
- Treasurer – Noah D
- Secretary – Ashia B
- Environmental Protection Officer – James K
Mrs. Carlsen’s kindergarten class built shade structures to prevent an ice cube from melting. One cube was left out in the sun to compare to the ones under the shade. Students discovered that darker colors absorb light and convert it to heat and that lighter colors reflect light and tend to be cooler.
