REED CITY — Winter has been a brutal one this year. With such a large amount of snow still covering the ground and negative temperatures, it’s hard to think about summer activities just yet.
This is the time of year that G.T. Norman Elementary School gym teachers focus on an important lesson with students in kindergarten through 5th grade. Through a grant, the school was able to purchase a water safety program developed by the American Red Cross and the equipment needed to help students feel safe, confident and prepared around water.
