A Midsummer Night’s Dream

On Friday morning, in our very own auditorium, the 8th grade class was given the amazing opportunity to view a production of William Shakespeare’s  A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a story of young love, magic, and mishap. The show was performed by the talented company ShakespeareNow!, who impressed the students with their quick humor and impeccable acting skills.  The students have been reading the play in class over the past few weeks and were thrilled to be given the chance to view this show as a culmination of the unit. The students described the performance as interactive, entertaining, and humorous.   After the show, they participated in a question and answer session with the actors.  Some great advice and insight was passed on to the aspiring actors here at NMS!  We want to thank the PTSG and the Pepperell Cultural Council for funding the event, as they made this entire experience possible for the 8th grade class.

 

YETI!

Last week, 30 students from Nissitissit and 30 students from Hawthrone Brook had the opportunity to compete in a YETI (Youth Erg Trials International) at Hawthorne Brook. Student competed on rowers for 90 seconds. Computer technology made it possible to see which rower was in the lead, which made for great a competition.  Thanks to Ms. Stanton for organizing our Rowing club! Check out these great photos!
