Camp Norwich

Before receiving their iPads this year, Norwich Elementary students experienced a week at “Camp Norwich” in the gym. Each session had a theme to help build community and culture. Some current and former students kicked off sessions with “Ignite speeches” around themes of: power of the team, growth mindset, reflection and adaptation. A Camp song and mindset mantra added to building a community culture of “we not me” around a campfire. PTO provided camp shirts for all students and staff to wear proudly, carrying forward the expectations of being respectful, responsible and ready. Providing purposeful experiences with staff and students builds values and beliefs which help our leaders be Ready for Tomorrow!
