FOOTBALL Concluded from p. 9 key completions down the stretch to ensure a Warrior comeback and victory. Bransfield disproved many doubts that people may have had about having a fresh- man starting quarterback, performing with the poise and confidence of a veteran quarterback. The Warriors also found success on the ground, finishing with 153 yards on 47 carries, Cowie found the end zone for the first Norwalk touchdown and their only rushing touchdown on the night. Cory Harding ledthe way with 102 yards on 25 carries in his first game as the starting running back. Wide receivers Nell Hanson and Greenslade made plays when they were asked to, finishing with eight catches for 68 yards and two catches for 50 yards respectivel both finding the end zone. Once the offense found their groove they could not be stopped, scoring three touch- downs in the fourth quarter and overtime to ensure a win. After struggling in the first half, the Warriors were able to make up for their mis- takes with a well-played second half. Every Norwalk Warrior played their hardest and their hard work paid off in the form of an opening game victory. If the Warriors can keep up this level of play all season, there will be many more wins to follow. Varsity Volleyball Team Freshman Volleyball Team LAKEWOOD ELEMENTARY By Jill Anderson, Principal and Chris Larson, Dean of Students Feedback by Teachers: This year at Lakewood, one of the emphasis is to review grading practices and ana- lyze the quality of feedback teachers and peers give to their students during class time. Common sense pre- vails that when students have opportunities to receive detailed feedback and uses that teacher feedback to cre- ate a better product, both performance and achievement will increase. John Hattie (2008) revealed that feedback was among the most powerful influences on achieve- ment. The days of smiley faces, stars and the simple JV Volleyball Team Traffic Patterns: Thanks to everyon for being more conscientious about our bus traffic around Lakewood, especially after school. Keeping space on the side streets around Lakewood so our buses can easily access and leave Lakewood helps us tremendously--thank you!! In the morning, remember that we should not use the entrance off of Happy Hollow to drop off students. That area is designated fo school personnel only. Also, con- tinue to drop off your children between the drop zone flags. This means that more than one student is able to be dropped off at one time and it helps keep our morn- ing traffic flowing. The earliest type of timekeeper, dating from as far back as 3500 B.C., was the shadow clock, or gno- mon, a vertical stick or obelisk that casts a shadow. An Egyptian shadow clock of the eighth century B;C. is still in existence. The triangle is a percussion Instrument that is made by bending a steel rod into a triangle shape that has an opening at one corner. It is then suspended by a string and struck with a steel beater to produce a tone. "good job" should be diminishing on your child's pa- i , i: . . :[ i:  ii: . -... . i i ....... i ' i i : . i: .::..

Professional Leg Communities: This month the teachers in their PLC s will be gathering evidence of the current levels of student learning and analyzing the ini- tial results of the assessments. Together they will be developing strategies and ideas to build on strengths and address the weaknesses in that learning. As teams, teachers will be sharing methods to meet the needs of all learners. It is a goal of the building to focus on stu- dent results and use the results to inform and improve their professional practice. NHS Cross Country Team. Photos by Toni Johnson Photography.
