NORTH SERVES COMMUNITY SERVICE

With the highly anticipated community service plans in place for all NAHS students, the NorthServes committee was formed to help our school prepare for their service experiences. To that end, the committee was invited to Gillette Stadium on April 22nd to meet with the directors of the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. Their visit was a complete success in that they impressed their hosts, demonstrated the level of service and volunteerism that already exists within our school, and obtained a commitment from the NEPCF to help us "inspire the desire" for all of our students to recognize the value of service and volunteerism and embed it into their approach to their own personal lives. We are grateful to this committee and proud of their work!

The NorthServes community service launch committee includes:

Aimee Baiungo

Kathleen Barrett

Lily Blank - Grade 8 @ NAMS

Dylan Desrosiers

Maria Fitian

Katherine Johnson

Meghan McCormack

Jack Regan - Grade 8 @ NAMS

Mr. Ames - Leo Club Advisor


NORTH SERVES LOGO

Special thanks to NAHS sophomore, Sean Drew, for designing the new NorthServes logo. None of what the NorthServes committee and school set out to accomplish would have been done successfully without a perfect logo. After completing a semester of Graphic Design, Sean was ready to share his learned skills and created this logo. It was on display at Gillette Stadium during the NorthServes meeting and served as the catalyst to create a brand for all to recognize, understand, and represent our school's value of service and volunteerism. Thanks Sean!!



Julie Berry Visit

On April 1, award-winning author Julie Berry conducted a series of presentations for our students in the NAHS library. Her visit was sponsored by AN UNLIKELY STORY, the independent bookstore in Plainville, MA. Her books, All the Truth That’s in Me, The Passion of Dolssa, and her newest, Lovely War have been shortlisted for the Carnegie and Edgar Award and won a Printz Honor Award in 2017. She writes historical fiction for Young Adult readers and books for middle-schoolers. The students and teachers were treated to a peek inside an author’s imagination and writing process—a good time was had by all. Her books may be purchased at AN UNLIKELY STORY, which is worth the trip from anywhere.


SALS Program Graduation

Some of the students from our 12 plus program recently graduated from their SALS program (Self advocacy and leadership program) where they spent time for the last 8 weeks at Bridgewater State University. The program is designed to introduce the students to various topics including how to advocate for yourself, how to communicate your needs appropriately as well as learning the in's and out's of Special Ed. law. This is a program which brings many districts in our area together and the students meet new people and make new connections. It is an opportunity for those who do not attend college in the normal sense to see what the college experience is. When they are done with their class they all go eat in the Bear's Den alongside their college peers.

SENIORS' HEALTH RECORDS

The Nurses will be handing out each SENIOR's health records during the lunch periods on Thursday, May 23rd & Friday, May 24th.

If for any reason you do not want your student to receive this, call our high school nurses at 508-643-2115 ext 1174 or 1175.

Each record should be kept in a safe place for future reference, especially the immunizations. Often times in the future a student is required to have these upon entry into most, if not all, under-grad colleges/grad schools or for job entrance. If their pediatrician/PCP retires, there will be no other reference for your student to access these immunizations.


Run Like a Rockstar: Rock n Roll 5k!

The North Attleboro K-12 Music Department hosted their 5th Annual Rock n Roll 5k Roadrace & Family Fun Run on May 19. Six Live Rock Music Stations energized runners and walkers through a course that went through the industrial park and finished on the NAHS track. The family friendly celebration also included Kids races, facepainting, a bubble station, hula hooping, Del's Lemonade, and a costume contest for the best dressed Rockstar. Thanks to all who participated!

Theatre News

Recently, the Theatre I & II class completed the Make-Up Unit with a practical exam of their make-up designs. Each student drew four designs and then chose one to apply on themselves. Photos include Justin Meyer in Alien, Ryan Kelly in Clown, and Brandon Wise in Old Age.
