North Salem Middle/High School
INFORMATION FROM OUR SCHOOL NURSE
French students enjoyed interactive, hands-on cultural learning this month! First, 8th graders transformed into mini chefs, preparing dishes to share from around the French-speaking world. Then, guest speaker Matt Frohman joined middle and high school classes for Experience Maple Syrup Day, in which we examined the history, significance, and "sweet" culture of maple syrup in Québec and the Northeast. What a treat!
North Salem MS/HS Presents ‘Damn Yankees’
The Golden Stage Society at North Salem
Middle/High School was excited to present “Damn Yankees” on March 20, 21
and 22, starring our very own assistant principal, Dr. George Bovino!
Winner of 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Choreography,
“Damn Yankees” had fans on the edge of their seats as they enjoyed
musical theater hits such as "Whatever Lola Wants," "Heart" and "Six
Months Out of Every Year."
Fifty-one students ranging from grades six through 12 took the stage
alongside Dr. Bovino. In addition to the cast, approximately 30 other
students have been involved with the production’s stage crew and
“Our students were fortunate to be able to work with a choreographer
with Broadway credits who teaches at the American Music and Dramatic
Academy in Manhattan,” said musical director Doug Coates. “She made sure
the students learned technique as well as choreography. They rose to
the challenge beautifully, and it really was a stepped-up show.”

Lewisboro Land Trust's photo show, *Views from the Wild Side: Photos of our Natural Spaces,* at the Katonah Village Library. In the student division,

To help recognize a group of people we are thankful for, high school peer leaders spent a week gathering thoughts and signatures from our student body to present to the North Salem Middle/High School Custodians as well as to the Grounds and Maintenance crew. We thank them for their continued efforts and help! Some representatives from each group met in the main office for a short presentation.
