MR. ZIMMERLY'S WEEKLY UPDATE:

February 25:

 This has been a short week but we still have plenty of activities going on at the high school level.  

  Our girls basketball team won their tournament game last Saturday and competed on Wednesday night in a district semi final game against Trinity.  The girls put forth a valiant effort but came up three points short.  Thanks to all the girls for their hard work and dedication this season.  Their effort on the floor was great and they had a great year! 

  Our boys basketball team played and defeated Garret Norman on Tuesday night in their first tournament game.  They will now play Loundonville tonight at Norwayne for their second tournament game.  Good luck guys! 

  Our wrestlers competed at the WCAL tournament this past weekend at Waynedale High School.  Gibson Moore and Lincoln Guthrie both placed second and James Norr and Chase Geitgey both placed fourth.  This weekend the entire team will be competing in the OHSAA Sectional Tournament at Northwestern.  Good Luck!

  The FFA has been busy this week as well.  On Monday they provided a free lunch to area farmers here at Norwayne High School for their annual Feed A Farmer Day.  A group of Norwayne FFA students are currently attending the New York Farm Show along with members from some other local chapters.  FFA week is coming up next week and the FFA members will be having themed dress up days. On Monday they will serve ice cream at lunch.  Friday will be the annual drive a tractor to school day. 

  The musical cast and directors have been rehearsing and working on set pieces for the production of Beauty and the Beast on March 4-6.  Tickets are going fast, so please contact the office to purchase and reserve your seat or visit http://norwayne.ludus.com/to purchase your ticket online.  

  Today Abigail Arnold, Annabel Stanley, Carmen Schlatter, Hayden Ringle, and Taylor Rienhart  are competing in the MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge (M3Challenge), where they are given 14 hours to work together to come up with and submit a solution to a real world problem that exists today.  As described on the challenge page  “MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge (M3 Challenge) is a contest for high school juniors and seniors in the U.S. and students in England and Wales. Through participation, students experience what it’s like to work as a team to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints, akin to those faced by professional mathematicians working in industry. Extra credit awards are available for teams who choose to write or employ outstanding code as part of their solution. The Challenge awards $100,000.” https://m3challenge.siam.org/

   Thank you to the parent group for their generosity again this week in providing a soda bar and some light snacks for our teachers yesterday.  We appreciate their generosity and support.  

    Our Bobcat Bonus award winners this week are Paul Boak twice, Aiden Feesler, Chase Ady, and Gabby Conrow.  Thank you to all of these students for their positive contributions to Norwayne High School.  

   Have a great weekend!
