To kick off Red Ribbon Week, students around the school showed up in their pajamas to show that they “sleep on drugs.” Representing the drug free life, sophomores Ivy Wanjiku and Kaleigh Everheart wore their pajamas to school. The rest of the week’s dress up days include: wear red day, crazy hair day, twin day, and sports/career day. “I love dress up weeks, they are always fun and I feel like it brings the school together a little bit. Just like we should stand together to fight drugs, we dress up together,” Wanjiku said.

	At tonight’s football game, students, friends, and families will wear pink to show awareness for breast cancer. Because October serves as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Relay For Life sold pink shirts to students and teachers so they could show their support. “I am a big supporter of Relay For Life here at North Cobb. I’m proud of my association with it, my sister is a 15-year Stage 3 breast cancer survivor, so I celebrate the research that’s been done and I want to support it anyway I can. So wear pink, and let’s yell ‘Go warriors’,” AP Psychology teacher Melanie Shelnutt said.

As the spirit of thrills and chills fill the air, administration and teachers alike deck the halls in vibrant Halloween decorations, such as Ms. Gatlin, who adorns her door with creepy decorations that have a whimsical spin. Though inspired by the season of scares, these cobwebs and cutouts bring a festive vibe to the halls of NC, and encourage participation in seasonal events like next Tuesday night’s “Scream on the Green,” which will bring the community together to celebrate the spirit of Halloween through movie watching and trick-or-treating.

Spooky up NC!

After two months of anticipation, students received their school ID cards during homeroom today. While the underclassmen's photos will appear in the yearbook, the photographers allowed the seniors to dress in silly attire for their IDs. Senior Isabella Keaton resembled a young child and chose to put her hair into pigtails and hold up a stuffed animal for her photo. Senior Esteban Alarcon kept his photo simple, with a fitted black t-shirt and a half smile. Senior Tara Anastasoff recreated her Kindergarten yearbook photo, choosing to wear a leopard print vest and fake bangs to perfectly replicate her younger self.

IDs, please

While walking the halls of NC during class, mentorship, newspaper, or—like senior Alex Martinez’—students find all kinds of ways to amuse themselves before heading back to class. On his way to take the government EOC, Martinez relieves his stressful frown by—literally—turning it upside down. Giving himself a boost of confidence and a smile, Martinez walks back to class ready to pour his hand-stand energy into his test.
