“Quiz bowl stretches your brain to contain more knowledge than ever before. It is a great club that anyone of any age should join.” These are the words of 7th grade player Gavin who was on the team last year for the first time. Players meet weekly for practices during the main season starting in October and going through March. The big misconception is that people think you need to be smart in all subjects to join, this is, however, not the case. Players work on teams of four with each player having one strong subject area. The main subjects involved in tournaments are History, Science, Literature/Arts, and Geography. Our players did so well in the first two seasons of the program that school was able to send teams to Nationals both years. Each year the team grows and develops. If you want to know a thing or two about anything and everything, you should check out Quiz Bowl!

Students of the Month for grade 9-12
For each month from September through April, teachers are asked to nominate students as candidates for Students of the Month. Teachers are asked to base these nominations on the character and academic excellence displayed by students in the classroom and around school. Once nominations are submitted the NHS members vote anonymously for two students they believe best represent these traits. Winners are then recognized by receiving a certificate, a locker sign, announcement in school and on all mediums of advertisement the school produces, as well as a note home to parents.
