Norwood school pupils' reading tied to millennium

DUNDALK -- Pupils at Norwood Elementary School are reading to reach the end of the millennium this school year.

As pupils achieve reading goals, teachers will assemble a time line displaying events of interest from the current millennium -- such as the beginning of Ringling Bros. Circus in 1908 and production of the first Barbie Doll in 1959.

If pupils reach their reading goals and complete the time line, Norwood Principal Harry Walker has promised to spend one night on the roof of the school.
