Talented Twins: Christian and Nate Sibbett


Joelle Anselmo, Reporter @janselmocourant Sophomores Christian and Nate Sibbett are living proof of “Renaissance Men”, people with many talents and areas of knowledge. These identical twins are not only three-sport athletes, playing lacrosse, football and wrestling, but also perform well in their classes and find time to pursue a wide range of hobbies outside of school. They both play different instruments like the piano and guitar, as well as extreme sports outside of school like snow skiing and wakeboarding. What usually makes a person stand out from the crowd is their talent and dedication towards one specific hobby, whether it’s…

College trends of NCHS


Caroline Knightly, Senior Editor @knightlycourant Throughout the seemingly never-ending college process, students tend to dwell on a specific school. That specific school is known as their dream school for their advanced academic opportunities or their ever-lasting and enticing social life.

Juuling: What is the buzz?


Holly Santero, Senior Editor @santerocourant Sam Stoner, Editor-in-Chief @sstonercourant Before asking NCHS senior Jon* about his thoughts on juuling, he took out what looked like a small, handheld flash drive and took a long, deep breath. Blowing out the smoke, then inhaling it through his nose in a popular trick known as the “French Inhale,” he was ready to start the interview. Over the past few years, NCHS has seen a variety of changes in the types of activities students do “under the table.” Whether it’s visible or not, there has always been a small group of students who participate…

Sign Language Club Coming to NCHS


Katie Tan, Reporter @KtanCourant Communication is one of the most important tools because it allows us to connect with one another, but for some this is not that easy. For 0.38% of the U.S. population, communication is not as easy as speaking to others. This 0.38% of Americans suffer from hearing loss, and many use sign language to express themselves. Sign language incorporates physical gestures and signs to form sentences. It is used all over the world and is a great skill for communicating with others, who are unable to hear.
