12.12.18 Wildcat Weekly…

Standard

Mr. Malcolm’s AP World History students are freshmen, both in high school and college.  The key to earning college credit for this course is to shine when the AP test rolls around this spring.  Mr. Malcolm’s students were hard at work this week, building the reading, thinking, and writing skills necessary to excel on the essay portion of the test that gives students several historical documents related to a writing prompt, and requires them to include these pieces as they write a collegiate level essay.  We have some smart cookies at Northview, and they are lucky to have teachers, like Mr. Malcolm, who know how to coach them well to earn college credit while they are still in high school.

…also seen in Mr. Malcolm’s classroom were 3D printed historical objects.  Some of his students are learning to use the 3D printer while reinforcing the material they are learning in history class.

Congrats to Grant Perry, who was named the Production Manager for the All-Ohio Company this year, which means was selected as the best around the state of Ohio, and will now help produce the All-Ohio show this winter, which will include the rest of Ohio’s best thespians.  This is Grant’s third time making the All-Ohio show.

The Wrestling Team won the St. John’s Jesuit Bill Urban Invitational Tournament this past weekend.  Check out the BCSN highlights below…

 

Senior Alek West was selected by 13abc and BCSN as their Athlete of the Week, following some dominating performances on the hardwood.  Check out their spot on Alek below.

 

Speaking of the Wildcats Basketball Team, here are the BCSN highlights from the last couple of games…

 

The Wildcats will take on Southview on Friday night.  Parents should be advised this will be a Fill It Up game in the lower section of stands opposite the team benches.  Before the varsity game, Project Unify will return to the court, and Ms. Minard and Ms. Darah are working to get the troops ready.

 

On the LadyKats side, the girls have put together several nice league wins, including this one over Maumee…

 

The QuizCats took on and crushed Ottawa Hills this week by a score of 475-100.  Senior Captain Patrick Andres was honored before the match began, as he has been the most valuable member of the area quiz bowl league for three years running.

 

Sophomores in the Leadership Academy spent time pitching ideas to each other this week for potential service projects for the spring.  They were charged with identifying a problem in society and then coming up with a way that they and their classmates can be a part of the solution.  They are currently voting on which ideas they think are the best, and will begin work after winter break to plan out their project.

 

Mr. Steele’s physical education students played 3-on-3 basketball this week.  He had them thinking and building skills, as he created a unique set of rules for the games.  Students who used their dribble could then not shoot the ball.  The parameters forced students to think and move without the ball in their hands, looking for ways to get open.

 

The Northview Cheer Competition Team took first place last weekend at the Anthony Wayne competition, with Sophomore Emily Knapp winning the Varsity Jump Competition.

 

The Northview Dance Team, which finished as State Runners-Up last year, is back and entertaining the masses during halftime of the basketball games.  Here is their opening routine…

 

Mrs. Rhine’s AP Psychology students hosted their first ever Brain Fair this past week, showing off their research.  Students connected physical parts of the brain to case studies and working mechanics that helped represent the parts of the bain on which they focused their studies.  Student groups articulated their findings to judges, who in turn rated the students.

 

Student Council hosted their annual Santa Breakfast a couple weekends ago, led by Seniors Emma Swanson and Bree Fangman.  These leading ladies were honored at the Sylvania Rotary chapter for their service.

 

The Northview Science Olympiad Team hosted some of the best SciOly Teams from around the state and beyond this weekend.  Mr. Roth tells us that there were 73 teams from 48 school from four different states, including Florida…

…1,200 students competed in sores of events, demonstrating their academic prowess.  Below, you can see a few of the events offered.

The defending NCAA National Champion Notre Dame Women’s Basketball team played the UT Rockets this past weekend, giving Northview Alumna Katie Cole a chance to come home.  Due to an injury, Katie is currently sidelined, but that did not stop dozens of our current LadyKats from going to the game to support her.
Senior Kevin Gaynor had a fantastic weekend, breaking two school records in our meet with St. John’s and Notre Dame.  Kevin’s name will now go on the record board on the wall of the natatorium for the 100m butterfly and the 50m freestyle.  Way to go Kev!  Below, you can see him out in front early on his way to one of those record-breaking performances.

 

Finally, we have a big holiday concert tomorrow night.  Mrs. Thiel and company are getting ready.  We hope to see you there!
