Grayson  Unknown

NM

Constable Grayson Smith is the author of There’s a Norseman in the Classroom and he’s also a member of the Delta Police Department.   He taught us the importance of being inclusive and not excluding others because of differences.  In his book, Norseman Norm is big, has a beard, is loud and well…he’s different.  Will the other students in Norm’s class include Norm?  This book teaches readers a valuable lesson about inclusivity.   This book is now available in the school library and Constable Smith signed the book too!
