The NC Band and Orchestra practices one last time before the Orchestra’s Spring Concert tonight; during this practice session, the two groups allowed the Special Education classes to practice on their own instrument. Though the two groups playing together may seem like a recipe for disorganization, they actually worked well together. This chemistry plays a large role in the success of tonight, as while the event itself may not deviate from the norm of their concerts, an additional player in their group must fit in with the group.
	“This concert is the final concert during the spring for the orchestra, and our full program is orchestra and band playing together. And it has every instrument: all the strings, all the winds, all the percussion. We’re playing a pretty normal program, so 15-20 minutes, and we’ll also be playing with United Sound”, sophomore Patrick Dill said.

Orchestra’s last hurrah!

In celebration of teacher appreciation week, NC hosted a cookout for all teachers and administration. Teachers gather around in the courtyard to enjoy freshly cooked hamburgers, veggie burgers, and hotdogs made by Assistant Principal Kiel Southwell. “Teaching is a challenging job, [the cookout] is a good opportunity to mix with peers, to get outside, and to get some great food served by Chef Southwell,” Magnet Coordinator and AP human geography teacher James Auld said.

Today, seniors at NC showed their fellow classmates what they hope to become in the future. Students dressed up as different career choices, including teachers, nurses, or even explorers and farmers.

With four weeks left in the school year, seniors celebrated their last high school dress up week. Today, seniors dressed up as Kindergarteners, throwing it back to the start of their school years. With jean overalls, colorful socks, and high pigtails, students transformed the high school hallways to elementary school classrooms.

Shrek’s hut, used for the NC Theatre Department’s upcoming performance of Shrek The Musical, lays in the back of the stage. As the main set for the play, the majority of the student performers will play out their roles around this locale. First performed in 2008, seven years after the animated movie released, Shrek The Musical retells the events of the film (and the 1990 book it adapts), but with additional backstory for Shrek and Fiona. The NC production will essentially serve as a retelling of the original, with no notable difference.

From the classroom to the field, the Lady Warriors lacrosse team will celebrate their seniors tonight at their game against Wheeler High School. “The seniors have lead us all very well, they each have a unique style for leadership but know how to revive both teams before all of our games. They pump us up and encourage us to do our best,” sophomore Molly Geraci said. The NC girls lacrosse team will celebrate each senior during their ceremony before their game tonight.

Yesterday, the world lost an important piece of the past to a fire that engulfed the Notre Dame in France, taking with it centuries of history. “I was so sad that my own son won’t be able to go and see it in the exact way that I was able to experience it. There’s just so much history in terms of architecture that has been lost. It’s just devastating to think about the fact that none of that can ever be reproduced exactly as it was,” AP Seminar teacher Mrs. Essenburg said. Tourists flooded social media to share their experiences with the infamous cathedral.
