It's that time of year:  NAHS has tons of activities under way and we are fortunate to have tons of great news about our students.  So get ready to read!  Please scroll through to the end so that you know all things NAHS.

Let's start out with a very long list of CONGRATULATIONS to the following students.....

CONGRATS TO The NAHS Dance Department and their dancers for acceptances into summer dance programs all over the country. A big shout out to: Lydia Rainwater (Atlanta Ballet Summer Advanced Intensive), Katie Morris (American Dance Festival), and Reid Newton (Alvin Ailey Professional Division Summer Intensive, Florida State University Summer Intensive, UNC School of the Arts, The Rock School of Ballet). Congrats to all students who were accepted into the Dance Canvas DC Next Summer Intensive Program: Katie Morris, Reid Newton, Jalin Ford, Olivia Jackson, Ameera Hill, Jhane Barnes, and Nykkia Rippy. Finally, the following seniors were invited to audition for North Carolina A&T Golden Delight Dancers: Jasmine Brown, Jazzineal Daniel, Chinyere Aniagoh, Danielle Jackson, and Tierney Dickens. Please support and enjoy the incredible talent of our NAHS Dance Department at their Spring Concert on April 26th and 27th at 7:00 PM.

CONGRATS TO our NAHS Girls’ Tennis Team -- on their way to state competition
Coach Perez reports, “Of the eight regions in AAA in Georgia, schools in our region 5-AAA have been the top two teams fighting for the state trophy in each of the past six years.  This makes our region one of the most competitive in the state.  This season our Lady Warriors fought fiercely against archrival Grady High at the region tournament to place fourth in the region.  This finish earned NAHS a trip to state for the first time since 2003. We have a relatively young tennis squad that has competed strongly against schools known for dominating at the regional level and state level.  What does this say about our Lady Warriors?  This season’s accomplishment will hopefully be the beginning of a new tradition here at North Atlanta, a tradition in which we send a team to compete in the State Tournament each and every year.  The team’s competitive excellence, its coaching staff, and its student athletes have come together in a perfect recipe that will help our Lady Warriors become better students, tennis players, and outstanding citizens.”
CONGRATS to our two NAHS Odyssey of the Mind teams for earning 1st and 4th Place  at State Competition!


Our 10th grade OM team finished first in their division at the state tournament held this past weekend. Tenth grade OM team members Kenzie Mabrey, Jessie Rubini, Jianna Justice,  Caroline Langley, former Sutton student Hanna Wendlandt, Maggie Neel and  William McClatchey (not pictured) advance to the World Championship in Iowa at the end of May.  Jianna and Caroline also competed at the state level on our second NAHS OM team with Estella Dieci, Elena Dieci, Rachel Floyd, Turner McCreight and Chart Riggall.  This team claimed 4th place in their division.  A special shout out to parent volunteer coach Leslie Langley for her passionate commitment to these teams.

CONGRATS TO Kenzie Mabry who not only won 1st at State OM, but also was named  the Buckhead Reporter’s Standout Student of the Week.  Kenzie has her own jewelry business through which she raises funds for autism.  Read the full profile here.

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST...CONGRATS TO the following seniors who have been honored as Scholar-Athletes:  Eric Zemmali, Patrick Shea, Emerson Bouldin, Rehann Bhiwandiwalla, Harrison Evans, Doug Durham, Natalie Payne, Adrian Epps, Ariana Abayomi, Ashley Brouder, Matt Headley, Kayla Nelson, Samantha Hughes, Andres Rincon, Karen Williams, Ryan Christian, Max Gray, Chelsea Fearn, Dustin  Wallis, Thor Denson and Joe Jacobs.  Scholar Athletes have maintained an A average and competed in at least one varsity sport during their senior year or played on varsity sport for two years during their high school career.  Please note:  these students will have photos taken on Tuesday, April 17th, on the football field during B lunch.   Please dress in Warrior spirit wear!

THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND is one of the busiest of the year for NAHS:

  • Friday night is Red Hot Jazz, which is SOLD OUT!   A waiting list for tickets has been started.  Contact Phyllis Smith at psmith4204@gmail.com to be added to the list.

  • Saturday night is Junior-Senior Prom.  Have fun.  Be Safe.  Need we say more?!

  • Sunday night is Warrior Welcome, our annual orientation for rising 9th graders and new students.  If you have a student or know of a student who wishes to attend, then RSVP here.

The College & Career Center (CCC) is developing a partnership with Georgia Tech’s Gamma Beta Phi Society to provide after-school tutoring for our students.  Gamma Beta Phi is a national honor and service organization requiring top 10% academic ranking to be considered for membership. Considering how difficult it is to be accepted to Georgia Tech, it is exciting to consider the support these highly successful Tech students can offer our own NAHS students.  Our first joint endeavor will be a session to prepare for the upcoming EOCTs later this month. Specific dates and times are Monday, April 16th and Wednesday, April 18th, 3:30-4:30 in the CCC.  This is open to ANY student taking an EOCT.  Please encourage your students to come to the CCC to receive a “College & Career Center After-School Pass” and sign up for the specific subject matter in which they need assistance. This is the only way we can assure each student’s specific academic needs can be met.

Seniors, please remember to bring a copy of ALL college acceptances and scholarship offers to the CCC by May 1st! We create YOUR GRADUATION PROGRAM from this information. Only financial totals will be printed in the program. All specific financial, scholarship, and grant information will be kept confidential and are for CCC Directors' eyes only.  Thank you!


Mirko Pasta is partnering with the Warbotz for a NAHS Night! Wrap up a busy weekend with an authentic Italian meal and support the Warbotz by joining us on Sunday, April 22nd between 5:00 and 9:00 PM for dinner.

It’s a big week for Warrior Varsity baseball as we take on two 5-AAA foes in our quest to make the State Playoffs.  On Monday April 16th, the Warriors take on Columbia at Warrior Field at 5:30PM. Wednesday, April 18th our teams travels to battle the Cedar Grove Saints.  Warrior fans, we need your support!  Come out on Monday and cheer for your Warriors!  The Warrior Junior Varsity ends their season on the road as they take on G.A.C on Tuesday April 17.  Game time is 5:30PM.


The PTSA will honor the Class of 2012 and their parents with a reception in the courtyard after the Visions program on Saturday, May 12th.  As is tradition, the parents of non-Seniors provide food and help in support of this large gathering.  We need Kitchen Warriors (15-20) from 8:00 am to noon to help with the event.  We also rely on generous food donations such as cheese platters, fruit plates and vegetable trays, petit fours, cookies and brownies.  Please sign up at FOR FOOD DONATIONS HERE.  If you can volunteer time, please sign up here .  We will have convenient drop-off times on Friday afternoon, May 11th, and early Saturday morning, May 12th.  Let's ensure our 2012 Seniors and parents get a memorable send off from North Atlanta. Any questions, please contact aileenharris@gmail.com or slcalcagno@bellsouth.net.



Rave reviews are still flying around for the outstanding production of West Side Story by the Center for the Arts.  A highlight of the show's two-week run was having actress Jasmine Guy (best known for her role on A Different World), in the audience for one of the final performances.  Ms. Guy, pictured above with cast members, is a graduate of North Atlanta's Center for the Performing Arts and had a starring role in West Side Story during her years at NAHS. 


From now until the end of school, we will be advertising openings for available PTSA volunteer positions to serve during the 2012-2013 school year.  We have a position for everyone, every talent and every situation.  All we need is your willingness to help us continue to build great momentum at NAHS. 

This week....we need Communicators!

If you've read this far in Warrior Weekly, you appreciate knowing what is happening at North Atlanta each week.  Help us tell our story and inform our community.  We are recruiting writers, reporters, photographers and content managers to contribute and manage different aspects of our PTSA communications, including Warrior Weekly and the NAHS website.  Thanks to great technology, these jobs are easier than ever.  We need volunteers to help us with school-wide communications and/or to communicate the activities and achievements of specific SLCs, sports teams, clubs, etc. Interested?  Please contact Kitsie Riggall, PTSA Vice President of Commnications, at kriggall@comcast.net.
