Bittersweet Ending

The Nouvel Lady Panthers Pom-Pon team just recently participated in the State Finals at the Breslin Center. The Pom team placed fifth overall with an excellent finish to their season. There are not many competitions that Pom teams are able to compete in so our ladies only visited regionals and states this year. With a young and small team this year, our lady panthers still were able to qualify and place in the state competition.  Although there are not very many awards to measure their performance, it can be measured in work ethic and perseverance, both of which our lady panthers have a lot of. If you happen to see one of the Pom team members in the halls or outside of school be sure to congratulate them on a very good season!

Although the team fell in districts, individual districts was a great success for the Nouvel wrestlers. The team was able to qualify two wrestlers for regional’s, Matt Sullivan and Preston Brisette. In order to do this both placed in the top four for their respected weight classes. At regional’s Matt and Preston had great days but lost in their qualifying matches that they needed to win to get to states. Both guys had amazing seasons and when I asked senior captain Matt Sullivan what his time in the wrestling program meant to him he said, “I loved competing and I am very sad that I will no longer be able to wrestle for NCC, but I learned a lot about myself and what I was truly capable of in the past four years. I am very proud of my team and how I have grown as a person through my 4 years in the wrestling program.”

The Plague

Over the past couple weeks a plague seems to have been prospering in the Saginaw area. Influenza isn’t the only virus going around getting people sick. The other viruses include an upper-respiratory infection and a strain of strep. The first causes congestion, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, a headache and fatigue. While the other displays the classic sore throat and some kids run a fever when they get it. A simple checkup at your doctor could help clear up the symptoms. The best medicine for this sickness seems to be a nasal spray, cough drops, lots of water, and sleep. This bug will have you hung up for days, maybe weeks. Make sure to wash your hands and steer clear of those that are sick. Stay healthy Nouvel, and if you are sick– Stay home!

So What?

Thursday March 9th is ‘So What?’ day! Back in the day, there used to be a club at Nouvel called the ‘Nouvel Girls Empowerment Network (NGEN)’. This group focused on media representation of women and encouraged everyone to be true to themselves instead of following an image or ideal set forth by others. Bringing it back, on this day, the girls have the option to come to school with no makeup, their natural hair, and both girls and boys can wear jeans with the t-shirt (students are not required to participate but are strongly encouraged). If you do not purchase a t-shirt you must be in uniform on that day. All money raised will go to the Underground Railroad. There will be a mass schedule during the day and a presentation by members of the Underground Railroad during that time.
