ALUMNI DAY A SUCCESS!

On January 7, 2015 NBHS welcomed back 68 alumni to the school for the 3rd Annual Alumni Day.

The AVID and Play-It-Smart students were exposed to a wealth of personal experiences, wisdom, insights and guidance from our former students about their journey through high school, college, and beyond. The number of returning alumni has almost doubled since 2013. One of the alumni summed it up when she was talking to the current students… “We go to college, graduate and are successful…we sat in your seats, and what we are doing you can too.”


 
If you or any alumni wants to participate in the future please contact:

Ms. Marci Korten

And sexual predators are not the only problem. Cyber-bullying and exposures to sexually inappropriate content are additional concerns. New apps are constantly being created, so it’s important to monitor what your child downloads. Being aware of the online tricks predators use will help you know what to look for.

ZEBRA ATHLETICS

Zebras Struggles Continue

It was the first time the Zebras got off to a good start at home in the first quarter. It was a slow, methodical first quarter as the Zebras and Hawks played a ball control game. The Zebras fell behind in the first quarter 7- 8. However, as the pace of the game continued with ball possession the Zebras went into halftime leading 14-11.

The second half was a little more of an up tempo but still ball possession was the strategy for both teams. At the end of the third the Zebras were down 18-20. Still anyone's game, the Hawks never got out of reach for the Zebras but some missed opportunities on the free throw line, turnovers and missed shots down the stretch allowed the Hawks to secure the win, 24-30. Nadier Whitten (SR) led the Zebras with 11 points.

The Zebras have shown that they are much improved but have yet figured out a way to finish games on a consistent basis to secure the victory. They are very close but the process of changing the culture takes time and the future looks very promising with more work.

The Zebras next game is on Monday, February 2nd at home versus Woodbridge High School.
