The Importance of Serious Plays

The NTHS Drama department is currently hard at work on our spring production of The Children’s Hour by playwright Lillian Hellman, who is known as a provocative and controversial social activist of the 1900s. This show was cause for controversy as it depicted the two main characters, Karen Wright and Martha Dobie, ruined after they were accused of being lovers, which, during the period it was written in, would be considered sinful, or unusual. This show follows our last year’s winter production, which was a production of The Miracle Worker, which is a play based on the life of Helen […]

We Mustn’t Be Silent

February is Black History Month. A time where all the great persons of color who have improved our society, are celebrated. On February 5th, some students participated in the “Day of Silence,” a day in which silence is held to commemorate those who are and have been affected by racism from both harassment, physical violence, and/or even death. It is incredibly serious and I cannot stress that enough, but after February 5th we can no longer be silent. The greatest way to show respect and appreciation to those who we have lost is to stand up for them, fight for […]

The Day Of Silence

Hello Students, This week is Black Lives Matter Week. Teaching Tolerance explains that the goal is “to challenge structural and systemic racism while centering the lives of black students inside and outside the classroom.” On Wednesday, February 5th, some of our fellow students may choose to participate in a “Day of Silence.” This event is NOT a school or district sponsored event. They may be wearing red duct tape across their mouths to symbolize the day of silence. We ask that you do not make fun of them or antagonize them in any way, and that you respect their choice […]

Thurston Unified!

Ms. Laverty has a message for everyone: Hi everyone! Just another reminder that Thurston Unified is a club that allows high school students with and without disabilities to play on a school team together. Furthermore, if you have any of my athletes (people with disabilities) or partners (people without disabilities) in your classes, and you have a moment, invite them to share their experience in Unified! It’s a great opportunity to get the Unified message out in front of the general education students and the community so they can learn more about the acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities. […]

You Wanna Test That?

One day, during the school earthquake drill, Ms. Kassil’s 5th period STEM Physics Class had an interesting conversation. It appears that students often think that the ceiling tiles are extremely light, and don’t have much capability in the offensive front, so it was decided to simulate a situation where a tile would fall on a student during an earthquake. The class found that one ceiling tile is about 5.5 pounds, and that on average, the distance from the ceiling to an unsuspecting student’s head will be 4.25 feet. Since the tile will go about 5 miles per second, whatever it […]
