Hello? Do kids get on social media on snow days? 1.23.19 Update from Silica Drive…


Well, with one day of classes in the books so far, it has been a light week.  Here are a few highlights from our abbreviated time together over the past week…

Senior Grant Perry spent last weekend working on the All-Ohio theatrical production.  This is Grant’s third time being selected from production experts from across the state as the student to help make happen the show with Ohio’s best young actors.  Congratulations to Grant!


Mock Trial, in its second year in existence, had their district competition on Friday.  Congratulations to Maiya Black for winning Star Lawyer and Eddie Garcia for winning Star Witness.  Congratulations to the entire team for a job well done.  Mrs. Rauscher is looking forward to watching you continue to build this program!


Sophomores dipped their toes into the career pool last week, learning about career options and career interest resources from counselors.  They then toured our engineering, business, computer science, education, iMedia, medical technology, cosmetology, and family and consumer sciences program facilities.  With course selections due on Friday, this quick look at what Northview offers was helpful for our students.


Friday brought an end to the school work and a chance for students to have some fun, as hundreds gathered to root on the LadyKats and Wildcats!  Our student section “The North” planned a new way to welcome our basketball teams to the floor for games, and used their Homeroom time to teach the student body the plan,  which they dubbed “The Northern Lights”.  They used the practice introductions to highlight our undefeated Quiz Bowl Team, which is led by 3-time player of the year for our regional quiz bowl league, Patrick Andres.  The Quiz Cats enjoyed their moment in the sun, so to speak.

You can see the finished product for the boys game here, which, along with the “Fill It Up” effort orchestrated by Mr. Irwin, won “The North” the BCSN Student Section of the Week.

We finally got around to playing the actual game, and the #4 state ranked Wildcats delivered, again, defeating the Maumee Panthers to remain undefeated on the season.


Saturday was a mess on the roads, but that did not stop our senior parents from continuing to collect household items to sell in their annual Garage Sale that will make the Northview After prom a success.  Thank to Julie Sample and her committee, and to all of our parents who dedicate hours and hours of their time to make the Northview experience a GREAT one!


Speaking of donations for a good cause, consider helping the National Honor Society with their campaign, Snuggles for Sylvania: a warm items drive for Sylvania Area Family Services!  You can donate new gloves, mittens, scarves, hats, socks, earmuffs or bands, and any other small warm items.  NHS will be donating them to Sylvania Area Family Services when the drive is over.  Students, bring these items to your homeroom through February 1st and the homeroom with the most items will receive a sweet treat during their next homeroom!  Contact Sara Lewandowski or Mackenzie Lutz for details.
