Imagine And Create

Last week the school was involved in another Inspire and Create (IC) event. Our  IC event is a school-wide activity that promotes creative problem solving and collaboration – it is also a time to have some fun! Occurring once a month, students from K-9 gather in division groups (K-3; 4-6; 7-9) or mixed grade (K-9) groups and are given a challenge. To learn more about our IC event click here.

 

In our latest IC event, Division 1 and II students were in mixed grade groupings in the gym while the junior high students were in mixed grade groupings in the learning commons, but they both had the same challenge – create a structure out of newspaper that can withhold the weight of textbooks.

 

 

 

 

After being given time to strategize, students could begin the construction phase.  After the allotted time expired, the creations were put to the test. Amazingly many of the structures that were created could hold the weight of 15-20 text books!

Nighthawks Soaring

Congratulations to both the boys and girls Nighthawks basketball teams who were victorious in their games Thursday after school against the Holy Spirit Heat.

The girls defeated the Heat for the second time this week with a score of 36-28. The boys, meanwhile, defeated the Heat 57-28.

Go Nighthawks!

Nighthawks Basketball Season Underway!

 

The NHS Nighthawk basketball season has begun! The girls team had their home opener and first game of the year against the Holy Spirit Heat. After a few basket exchanges in the first quarter, the Nighthawks slowly pulled away and defeated the Heat 43-26.

The girls play the Heat once again at home on Thursday after school.

 

 

The boys played their home opener and first game of the year when they hosted the St. Luke Mustangs on Tuesday. The Mustangs came on strong in the first quarter and took a commanding lead. The boys held their own in the final three quarters, but could not make up the baskets and lost to the Mustangs 57-36.

Next action for the boys is Thursday at Holy Spirit.
