Are you familiar with the Norwalk Catholic School Parent Navigators? For the last 2 years, this group has been helping new Flyer Families Take Flight! We all know how hard it can be to go somewhere where we may not know anyone. The Navigator program is to help eliminate some of this stress for each new family. Our team will pair the new families with a family that has children close to the same age and knows the ‘ropes’ at Norwalk Catholic School and St. Paul High School. Mainly, our Flyer Navigators will welcome their assigned new families into our community. We are in need of more Flyer Navigator Families! Are you interested in being a Flyer Navigator? Would you like to learn more information about it? Please join us for an informational meeting on Monday, May 22 at 7:00pm in the high school library. Babysitting is available for the meeting too! If you need babysitting or would like more information but cannot attend, please call Jenny Ridge at 419-668-7223 or email her at jridge@ncsmail.org.
