A few updates as of today:
1 - Winter Basketball - we began playing basketball with our 3rd-6th graders, and this year added Kindergarten again! Although some of those 5 and 6 year olds have quite impressive ball- handling skills, not many of them could reach an 8' basketball hoop, so we put out a call to borrow Tiny Tykes portable hoops through February.
Norwichians never cease to amaze me with their generosity. Within 15 minutes, we had several families offering to loan us their equipment - thank you, everyone! Our 5th and 6th graders will begin playing games against towns that share our COVID-19 protocols. Here is the link

2- Ice Rink - as of this week, we officially have the 'go ahead' to ask for volunteers to maintain the rink! We need volunteers on Tuesday, December 21st at 12pm for set up, and then again for the filling of the rink (TBD). Please contact me at email@example.com to sign up.
3 - Grooming at Huntley - the snowmobile is in with our DPW mechanic for it's annual assessment. Hopefully all goes well, and we are ready for the snow. Our intrepid grooming team, led by Bob Fisken, is getting pretty excited about this season!
4 - Norwich Historical Society is hosting their 'Discover Norwich' programs again. We will partner with the Conservation Commission to discuss one of my personal *favorite* activities - foraging! Stay tuned for more info. It is guaranteed that you will see some photos of the amazing finds we have enjoyed in our town.
5 - On Tuesday, December 21st, please join the MCS PTO and Norwich Rec in hanging pine boughs on the town green fence! This will happen directly after school (3:15pm), meeting at the gazebo. The PTO has generously funded the pine boughs and will have hot cocoa on hand. We will be providing packed cookies for people to take home! Please come by, and feel free to bring an ornament or decorations to make the boughs even more festive!
Have a great weekend!
