Special Olympics Success!

On April 28, several students and staff from NMS attended the Special Olympics at Fitchburg State University. The day started with a royal send off for the athletes organized by our Student Council. Members of the band performed, students held signs and cheered while the athletes made their exit from the building. Thank you to the Student Council for organizing this very special event. The sports events the athletes participated in were a relay race, soccer skills, football toss, obstacle course and a 25 meter run/walk. There was also lots of fun and dancing in the “Olympic Square” where the DJ had great music and the athletes could dance with the Fitchburg State mascot.  It was a wonderful day and everybody had a blast. Congratulations athletes!

Student Spotlight: Elaina


Recently, one of our seventh graders,  Elaina Greco competed in the Eastern National Gymnastics Competition in Michigan.  Easterns is a competition for Level 9 gymnasts, who qualified within each region. Only the top 7 girls in each age group are chosen! Basically, Elaina competed against the best girls in half of the United States, for her age.

Elaina took 1st place in the Beam, 8th place on Floor, and 9th All Around.  Competition was fierce.  Elaina took 8th on Floor with a score of 9.4 , while the 1st place winner scored  9.5!

Way to go Elaina! Check out her videos!

First Track Meet Results

At their first meet of the season against Groton-Dunstable, both the girls and boys track teams did exceptionally well! The boys won a tight meet by a score of 45 to 41, and, while the girls put up an amazing effort, they were not victorious against a very strong GD team.

For the boys, Jordan Meas came in second in the long jump with a jump of 14’9, Joey Doroski came in third in the shot put with a throw of 24’5, and Trevor Jenkins and Jacob Leblanc came in second and third in high jump, each clearing 5 feet. Caleb Amidon and Aidan Gallagher came in first and second respectively in both the mile and the 800, with both boys breaking the previous school mile record with times of 5:48 and 5:51. Other standouts included Max Patenaude, Will Toppi, and Matt Collins.
For the girls, Dova Koretsky came in first in the long jump at 13’2 and second in the hurdles. Meghan McCarthy was second in shot put with a throw of 24’5 and Jolina Rich cleared 4’2 to come in third in the high jump. Julie Crouse was third in the mile with a time of 6:36. Raelyn Callahan and Isabella Angelucci finished first and second respectively in the 100, with times of 14.4 and 14.5 seconds. Other strong performances were made by Evelyn Bagley, Lindsay Swartz, and Sophia D’Ambrosio.
Awesome job everyone! Our next meet is Tuesday at away against Bromfield.

Tessa’s Amazing Experience!

Our own Tessa Holloran is completing an amazing horsemanship experience in Florida. Read below to hear about her journey:

My horse Beau (her registered name is Usela) and I are wrapping up a three-month intensive training program in Wellington, Florida. I’ve been riding since I was three and a half and dressage since I was about six years old. This Dressage4Kids program was created by two-time Olympian Lendon Gray to help young dressage riders grow with training and horsemanship skills. I took five lessons a week with Lendon and while she can be very tough at times she is always fair and always pushes you past your comfort level. I loved every minute and am so excited with the progress Beau and I have made. We also competed at five shows, faced the judges 14 times, and earned several qualifying scores for Championships later this year.

There were 14 girls in the program, including one from Trinidad and several from the Northeast/New England area. We were able to watch and meet some of the biggest names in the dressage world. We met every member of the US Olympic Dressage Team and even held their bronze medal from the 2016 games in Rio. I was also able sit down with Laura Graves from the team and interview her for a required project.

While we were all enjoying the nice weather, the days were a lot of hard work. Every day starts at 6:30 a.m. with barn chores then fitness and ends around 4:30 p.m. We rode our horses 6 days a week, took field trips to other farms, had weekly written tests, and volunteered. Only twice a month could my mom and I sleep in because I shared morning chores with a friend. I did quite a bit of my schoolwork at the barn and on weekends.

I can’t wait to share more stories when I return to Pepperell. I really appreciate all the support from my teachers, Ms. Young, Ms. Gleason, and Superintendent Landers. It has been an amazing experience that I will always cherish. If you want to look back at more of my journey here in Wellington, please visit my Facebook page for Usela, just search teamholloran.

See you soon, Tessa
