i= SCHOOL and SPORTS Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District Norwalk Warriors Page Eight Class Visits Des Moines University By Sara" Coleman, Anatomy and Physiology Instructor Des Moines University (DMU) welcomed Norwalk High School's Anatomy and Physiology Class for a field trip Wednesday, Feb. 13. After a comfortable bus ride we arrived to be welcomed by Allison Sharber, MPH Recruitment Coordinator for Central Iowa AHEC, our trip organizer and members of the Admissions Office for DMU. We were in for a real treat. Two 4th year medical students talked with the stu- dents about their experiences in medical school, prepa- ration required to get there (any college major will work as long as the requite classes are taken for admission), student life both before and during medical school. Af- ter an explanation of the difference between a DO and an MD, a demonstration of osteopathic manipulation was shown. Students had the opportunity to watch 3rd year medi- Cal students doing a procedure on very lifelike manne- quins, with their professor manipulating how the man- nequin responded, right down to the dilation of the pupils! While the medical students were unsuccessful, the Norwalk students were impressed to see that the professor did not just tell the students what they did wrong, but asked them to explain their decisions and guided th*m.to the core procedure ; After lunch students spent some time in the surgical skills lab learning that sterile hand washing takes a great deal of time and muscle. We were certainly cleaner leav- ing than when we arrived. A definite highlight during our time at DMU had to be the Anatomy Lab. Students had the opportunity not only to view a cadaver, they were able to handle the organs and actually touch and explore. A mini-lesson iff ffedical2t6rm. noloy of muscles by the school's anatomy professor allowed the students to connect di- rectly to what they have been learning in our course. Our Norwalk community can be very proud of the re- spect the students showed during this wonderful learn- ing opporhmity. Some of the responses the students share of the ex- perience: "I was amazed. L.at how realistic training is before you even come into contactwith a real patient." "After this trip it made me realize that I for sure want to go into the medical field." "This was the most interac- tive and individualized trip that I have taken." The class thanks Principal Dale Barnhill for his sup- port of this experience and Maria Frantum for chaper- oning. Christmas is a summer holiday in South Africa. Auld Syne000000_ "Auld Lang Syne" is sung at the stroke of midnight to bring in the New Year. Early variations of the song were sung prior to 1700 and Inspired Burns to pro- duce the version we know. An old Scottish tune, "Auld Lang Syne" literally means "old long ago,' or simply, "the good old days." N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, March 14, 2013 Norwalk Hosts Successful Solo Festival!!

OVIATT ELEMENTARY By Dr. Laura Sivadge, Principal and Rodney Martinez, Dean of Students Coping With Homework Horrors Help your child complete homework with a minimum of tears. By GreatSchools Staff Even if your child is an excellent student, you can't assume that he will always dutifully do his homework. One day he may eagerly attend to his schoolwork and the next he might be obsessed with sports and dances. Here are some helpful tips for taming wandering minds during those times when academic enthusiasm lags. Set aside a regular time and location for study. Give homework its own special time and place, and if your child is in middle or high school, let her set her own schedule. Take it step by step. Children may get overwhelmed by the amount of homework they have to do. Encour- age your child to calmly figure out what needs to be done and how much time it will take, and then create a plan. Help your child break each assignment down into manageable steps. Provide a quiet, well-lit environment. It's best to do homework in a room that has good lighting and is rela- tively quiet. This reduces distractions and helps to main- tain concentration. It's believed that the tradition of using a baby to sig- nify the New Year started in Greece around 600 B.C. Other traditions of the season include the making of New Year's resolutions, which dates back to the early Babylonians. Puritans in the Massachusetts colony tried to ban Christmas during the 17th century, because of what they saw as elements of heathenism in the celebra- tion. The English Parliament abolished Christmas in 1647 but the ban was lifted when the Puritans lost power in 1660, SUBSCRIBE TODAY!
