3.20.19 Wildcat Weekly…

Standard

Our AP Research students showed off their year’s work, presenting at the Ohio Junior Science and Humanities Symposium at Bowling Green State University.  Mrs. Nelson’s students submitted their original academic research for adjudication.  Twenty-four students were chosen from across from the state to present their research in person and to compete for prize money.  Three of those chosen to present based on the merit of their research from a pool of impressive students who attend outstanding high schools were Northview Wildcats.  Congratulations to Claire Gray, Rachel Avina, and Hannah Dorris!  Hannah went on to win scholarship money for her 3rd place finish.  Mrs. Nelson was selected by the organization as their teacher of the year for her work to build our research program at Northview.  A hearty congratulations to Mrs. Nelson and all of her students!img_2767img_2768.jpg

 

You may remember that Mr. Eckhart and these fine mathematics students entered the MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge a few weeks ago, writing a 20-page paper to respond to a mathematical modeling challenge problem.  Well, M3C notified them this week that their work made it past the first round of judging, and remains in contention for the team prizes, which range from $1,000 to $20,000.  Only 178 of the 877 teams that submitted viable solution papers – about 20% – were selected to advance to the second round of judging.  They should hear by Monday, March 25, about the results of the next round.  The top six teams will be required to present their papers at the validation round of judging on Monday, April 29, at the event host’s offices – Jane Street, a quantitative trading firm, headquartered in Manhattan.  Congratulations All!

 

The Northview Science Olympiad Team won the Regional Championship last week!  This marks their 5th in a row.  Congratulations to both our varsity and junior varsity teams, as they finished 1st and 2nd in northwest Ohio!

 

Our Bands and Choirs all earned top honors, Superiors, at District Contest last week, and are headed to the State Contest in late April.  Congratulations musicians and teachers!

 

Mr. Malcolm’s AP World History freshmen presented their research at the National History Day district competition at BGSU this past weekend.  Olivia Li’s presentation on Henrietta Lacks qualified her for the state competition.  Way to go Olivia!

 

Senior Amar Ifetiha was honored by the Sylvania Schools Foundation last week with the Babiak Award for her extensive service to the community over the course of her high school career.

 

The Superintendent’s Art Show took place at Highland Meadows Golf Club last week, providing a platform for some of our students’ impressive work…

 

The Northview Orchestra is preparing for their trip to Disney World and sharpened up last night with a preview concert.

Here, you can hear the Concert Orchestra performing Tango D’Amour by Susan H. Day…

…and this is the Chamber Orchestra’s version of  Scherzo in G Minor by Antonio B. Bruni…

…and this is a combined effort of both orchestras playing the theme song from The Incredibles, which is one piece they will perform at Disney World.

 

Ms. Janecko’s freshmen learned about how genetic evolution takes place as a result of natural selection by simulating animals in the wild consuming food and drink for energy in a competitive format.  She threw in natural stresses like droughts to “thin down the herd” based on those who struggled to compete for resources…

 

While the Juniors were taking the ACT last week, the rest of our students used the time out of the classroom productively.  Freshmen learned what to think about and look for on a college visit, and then practiced by taking their first college visit to the University of Toledo…

The sophomores took a practice ACT, and received their scores that day, thanks to the wizardry of Mr. Malcolm.  Over the course of the next year, these students will have access to ACT expertise and practice questions which will help them prepare for the real test next spring.

Finally, our seniors visited college campuses, spent a day shadowing a professional in a career of interest, or donated service to the community.

 

Rehearsals for the upcoming spring play “Radium Girls” are in full swing.  The play runs April 4-7 and tickets are on sale now at northviewtheatre.org.

 

If you missed the trips to Columbus to support the Wildcats on the ice or on the Wrestling mat, here are a few glimpses of the fun…
