Flood Brook School is beneficiary of Nordic Rocks program

LONDONDERRY — The “Nordic Rocks” program was developed to provide elementary school students with an opportunity to experience Nordic skiing with a clear pathway to further advancement in the sport. By participating in the “Nordic Rocks” program, Flood Brook is introducing a new generation to a healthy lifestyle and lifelong activity. 

The National Winter Sports Educational Foundation in conjunction with USSA and local Nordic ski club, West River Nordic, has provided Flood Brook School with 30 pairs of Nordic skis that Physical Education teacher Mark Weikert can use during class time. 

They have also provided detailed, age-appropriate lesson plans, and West River Nordic will provide volunteer mentors and equipment assistance. A big thank you goes out to Weikert, John Ogden of West River Nordic, USSA and the National Winter Sports Educational Foundation for bringing “Nordic Rocks” to Flood Brook.

The Flood Brook School is a K-8, 300-capacity school located in the heart of ski country in Southwestern Vermont. The Mountain Towns Regional Education District School Board consists of 8 school board members from the towns of Landgrove, Londonderry, Peru and Weston. At Flood Brook School we challenge ourselves to be lifelong learners, to practice respect, and to value community.
