More Success for Nottingham athletes

Congratulations to Nottingham Nordic skiers Adam Luban and Eric Houck, part of the Old Forge team that won the boys Section III title.  Well done! Nottingham senior Liam Bartlett is heading to the state swim meeting, notching a second place finish in the 50 freestyle at Saturday’s state qualifying swim meet.  Go, Liam! Nottingham basketball fans will have a tough choice Tuesday, February 19.  Both the boys and girls teams begin sectional play, with the boys hosting West Genesee at 7 pm and the girls travelling to play West Genesee, also at 7 pm.  The boys are a 3-seed and the girls are a 5-seed, and wins on Tuesday mean they’ll continue sectional play on Friday. Come out and show your support—what are you waiting for!

Yearbook Staff Offers Special Senior Tribute Ads

Nottingham senior parents:

A popular senior tradition is creating a senior tribute “ad” for the yearbook. If you’d like to create a special good-bye/congratulations/we’re proud of you message to run in this year’s yearbook, now is the time to start planning.

Most tribute ads include a photo–or several–but they can also include text–a special family message, song lyrics, a poem. Some are funny, some are moving. Seniors love seeing pictures of each other as kids or photos with old friends from elementary school, Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, East Side Soccer teams, basketball games–the yearbook staff can help you create a great ad for your senior.

See the attached information sheet from yearbook advisor Christina Ferlenda. DEADLINE: March 22 doc iconparent ad 2013.doc

Nottingham Holds One Billion Rising Event on February 14

Nottingham is hosting its own One Billion Rising Event on Thursday, February 14, working to raise awareness about violence against women.

The One Billion Rising group has been selling t-shirts to raise money for Vera House and The Women’s Info Center (and still has some for sale – $15 each).

Tomorrow, our event begins at 2:30 in the main hall, concluding with a reception in the cafeteria where we will be reciting a monologue called “RISING,” taking the One Billion Rising Pledge and hearing from a Vera House representative.  Students, staff and family members are encouraged to attend.
