Anyone interested in computer coding is welcome to join our free and inclusive club! No experience necessary. Meetings for this semester begin Tuesday, January 15th during AL. We meet at the coding PCs in the LMC. Stop by room 1211 for a pass. See Mrs. Steffen if you have any questions.

 

*** Attention JUNIOR Class ***

There are immunizations requirements for your Senior year. You need a 2nd dose of Meningitis (MCV4) vaccine AND you need 2 Hepatitis vaccines. These vaccines are required before you start your Senior year. One you've received the vaccinations, turn in proof of them to the school nurses asap. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask your school nurses.  

 

Your NHS Thespians will compete at State on January 19th with their one-act play entitled "Know Your Role" by Brandi Owensby. Students, you are invited to join us Tuesday or Thursday during AL for a FREE preview of this state-qualifying show. As soon as we leave the womb, we’re bombarded by society’s expectations about gender. When achieving or defying these stereotypes, teens often find themselves placed on a pedestal, either one of glory or of shame. Whether it’s how we dress, the rules of dating, body image, parental pressures, or

a host of other ways, Noblesville High School ensemble members will expose how gender expectations affect teens today. To get a pass to this amazing AL show, stop by Student Services or see Mrs. Nieten in 3105.

 

Students, are you musically talented, funny or have a skill you want to show off? Sign up for an audition for Noblesville's Got Talent! Check your canvas message inbox for a google form that was sent during finals week. Once you sign up, you'll receive more information. Questions ask Ms. Oilar in the freshman center or Ms. Soderlund in 2203

Sports

 

Last night your Lady Miller Gymnastics Team competed against Bloomington South, Edgewood and Lapel High School and fell short of a victory.  Bloomington South won the competition with a team score of 90.775, followed by Edgewood 87.050, Noblesville placed 3rd with a team score of 82.825.

  On Vault

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's this evening was Junior Olivia Mangin with solid score of 8.6 placing 3rd for the team. "Olivia has been competing the same vault for a few years now, and it is certainly a vault that she does well, and it is a solid score for us that we can count on."  I was proud to see a good score from both Freshman Kiley Reisner, 7.95 and Junior Cailey Hurst, 7.85.  Vault is always one of our best events and we are able to stay strong as a team as we ended our vaults with a team score of 24.40, which Is a great start for the season. 

On Bars

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's was Junior Olivia Mangin with a 6.9 placing 6th.  We are still struggling with our individual and team scores on bars as bars is one of our weaker events.  However, we had a big break through from Senior Racheal Glasener this evening with competing a skill in competition that she had yet to compete.  This was such an exciting moment for Racheal just as it was for her team standing behind her.  "I am so proud of this young Lady as she had never the sport of gymnastics until high school and it is remarkable of what she has accomplished is the small amount of time." 

On Beam

Leading the way for the Lady Miller's on Beam was Junior Olivia Mangin with a strong score of 7.475 placing 4th.  Olivia was able to stick her beam routine tonight and made her connections which was a strong start for the season.  Freshman Kiley Reisner also had her first "beam stick" for the season.  Though our team score on beam is still struggling due to the injuries that we have on the team, we did see our team score rise a bit from the 1st competition. 

On Floor

Junior Cailey Hurst placed 6th with a solid 7.1.  Cailey being added to the roster just this season has already shown she has what it takes to compete in this sport.  We still made our mistakes in the floor exercise with some falls and missed connections, but our team score did rise from the last competition, which are small improvements.

In the all-around Junior Olivia Mangin placed 4th with a all-around score of 29.625 which is a point higher than her last competition. 

    Over-all we still have lots of work to do to improve with our missed connections which is part of our loss today.  Connections our huge in this sport because if you break or miss a connection than it decreases your over-all value of make-up of skills of the routine.   However, we did improve in certain areas from last competition and I was proud of the small victories.
