Lion King and Friends

The Norwell 2009 show choir groups will be performing their traditional fall show this Friday, October 30 at 7:30 and Sunday November 1 at 3:30. This year's show is titled "Lion King and Friends" and is choreographed by Jeff Cox and Taylor Morris (a senior survivor of the show choir). It is directed by Mrs. Doles, Norwell's Choir director. The show is Disney themed with a Lion King Medley and promises to be fun and definitely entertaining! Both the middle school and high school choirs will be participating in this exciting kick-off to a year of Show Choir! And in case you missed the Knight's Street Fair show they will be giving us another chance to see the performance. So be there on Friday night or Sunday afternoon and support your knights!

On Tuesday, November 20, the Animal Science class hosted two guest speakers. Officer Morgan is the K-9 officer with the Bluffton Police Department. Melissa Newman is an animal science professor at the University of Kentucky who also works with search-and-rescue dogs for FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency). They spoke about the selection, care, training and uses of service dogs. Boone, one of Dr. Newman's five dogs that she brought, gave a demonstration of how he searches for missing individuals by finding a synthetic human scent hidden in the classroom. (Thanks to Mr. Caldwell!)

It's Our Time-Girls Varisty Volleyball

It has come to an end for the Girl's Varsity Volleyball. They Lady K's were able to beat the Wayne Generals last Thursday in a 3-1 win. They Lady K's then got to move on to Saturday's games. Norwell played the Bellmount Braves in the first game on Saturday. Even thought the Ladies lost, they made Bellmount work for their win. Overall, the Ladies ended their season with a bang, and had fun doing it.

Norwell Theatre's Fall Production

This fall, Ms. Kahn's theatre program is performing the play, "The Whole Darn Shooting Match" by Jack Perry. Taking place in the early 1960s, the casts acts as the Creative Department of a local all-purpose liquid detergent. This particular slice of the advertising world includes an over-the-top TV commercial writer, an alcoholic artist, a dry, witty Girl Friday, and the sarcastic man the department refers to as their "beloved leader." When a New York agency begins to hoard in to take Easy detergent national, the Creative Department does anything, and I mean anything, to keep on their clutch on their advertising creation. The casts includes many actors from previous productions, such as Tyler Miller, Robert Connett, Brandon Havener, and Rachel Jackson. There will be two showings, both at 7 o'clock on November 13th and 14th.
Also, Norwell's Theatre is selling t-shirts to anyone interested. They are 10 dollars. They are black with yellow font (see right photo). Anyone interested should see either Ms. Kahn or Devan Filchak, or simply e-mail me at devanfilchak@gmail.com. Orders will be accepted up until October 22nd.

We have an ODL?

Mr. Bailey's Earth Space science class has worked on the "ODL" or Out Door Lab for several weeks now. However, I'm willing to bet many Norwell students or even teachers aren't aware we even have an ODL. As for Mr. Bailey's students, we do! We have spent the past 9 weeks observing nature, learning to read a compass to find your way to and from destinations, and even digging holes for the numerical and alphabetical signs for future students. So if you're ever interested in the solar system, glaciers, or even digging a hole, make sure to sign up for Mr. Bailey's Earth Space science class!
