Team 6401, the 8-bit RAMs was formed this year in 2016.  As a team who wants to have an impact on the world, we not only meet the standards, but go beyond expectations.  The team’s motto “Now is the time to make a difference” emphasizes the perseverance and determination each member has towards the development of robotics.  We started by competing in the Brunswick Eruption robotics scrimmage, and winning the Future Glory Award which foreshadowed our glamorous glory to come.  Recently, we participated in the First Robotics Competition which was held at RCC.  The competition included over 50 teams from all around the world.  We ended up doing outstanding in the competition and was awarded the Rookie All Star award!  With this award, Clarkstown North’s very own First Robotics Team will be traveling to St. Louis to compete against the best teams around the world in the First Robotics Finals.  Sponsored by Orange and Rockland, Toshiba, and NASA, the 8-bit RAMs have a future of eminence to look forward to.  GO 8-bit RAMs!


Review: Nerve (2016)

(Originally submitted April 3, 2017)

The movie Nerve was an overall good movie that teaches the horror of peer pressure and what it can drive high schoolers to do. Beginning is long and takes commitment to get to the thrilling parts. Showing many crazy and risky stunts pulled off by the main characters, it is not for the faint of heart.

“This movie gives me anxiety”- Matt Lauer, dedicated member.

Black and White Student Art Exhibit

by Corryn Mathis

This year, Art Honor Society is hosting three student-led art exhibits. The second one was the Black and White exhibit.  Students had the opportunity to display their artwork (of any medium) in the exhibit, as long as it was composed in black and white. Any student could submit their work to the exhibit, even if they’re not taking art classes.  This was a great opportunity for students to show off their work and enjoy the work of others. The entire exhibit is composed of student work, and it was organized by students.

The last student exhibit is Inspiration Nation, and it was a huge success as well!

The time has finally arrived for Art Honor Society to begin their sale of Turkeygrams! Turkeygrams are painted handprints on pieces of paper that you can design and draw turkeys on for your friends that will be delivered by members of Art Honor Society. Many students write funny messages and drawings, making it fun for their friends to receive. But sales are not limited to your friends, many students also buy Turkeygrams for their teachers, and some teachers even buy them for other faculty members. When you buy a Turkeygram, make sure to write your friend’s name and first period class so it can be delivered to them. They will be delivered to students first period on Tuesday, November 22.

Turkeygrams cost $1 each, and the proceeds go to either a charity of choice or towards art supplies for Elementary Students in East Ramapo. Art has been cut from the budget at East Ramapo, so students there don’t have the opportunity to learn about art and demonstrate their skills. Because of this, some North students in Art Honor Society go to an East Ramapo elementary school after school to teach art to students. The proceeds from Turkeygrams will go toward new art supplies.

This year, Art Honor Society has collected over $200!
