Earlier this month, representatives from the Center for Safety and Change came in to present to the Drawing and Painting, Art IV and Design and Illustration students. Students learned valuable information on issues surrounding domestic/relational violence against both females and males.
Students were then invited to submit work to the annual poster contest calling for an end to this societal problem.
Congratulations to Sarah Placide, Alexa Laquidara, Haley Mendick, Melanie Gatchalian, Grace Chang, Alexandra Wang, Rebecca Straniere, Grace McInerney, Samantha Sobel, Samantha Pollak, Tianna Powell, Anaya Velez, Kaitlyn Fudge.

Thanks to the Physics department for bringing back the Physics Photo Contest!
Physics students demonstrated their understanding of Physics concepts in one of three categories: contrived, natural or multiples. Students worked in teams to create a visually interesting photograph as well as a description of the physics concept being demonstrated. Photos were then shared with the photography students for peer assessment. Below are some of the favorites. Job well done everybody!
Congratulations to All of our participants: Madison Pilavin, Olivia DeGiacamo, Jess Nunes, Ashley Garcia and the first place winner, Jaclyn Kaufman!
In February, photography students were invited to submit images that were abstract interpretations of everyday objects. This teen contest was developed around an exhibit of Early Soviet Photography, an exhibit that North students had the pleasure of visiting.
We are proud of all of our contest participants: Emanuela Madellana, Jamie Wildman, Brian Huang, Zack Kraushaar, Kathleen Shofield, Katie Adorable, Chloe Albert, Courtney Cullen, Karishma Patel and Nicole Peyton.
And we are super proud of
