Nutley High School's Culinary Arts Program gives students the chance to learn more about cooking different recipes, basic foods, and the concept of giving back to the community. The class is the most popular elective at NHS because most students are interested in cooking and food.The teachers for the program are Mr. John Gulardo and Mr. Tarik Huggins. They put a lot of effort into the class to make it a great experience for the students taking it. It takes a lot of hard work to teach high schoolers how to cook.
Nutley High School gives students an opportunity to take one of three languages during their time in school: Latin, Spanish, and Italian. After completing three years of studies in a language, students have the ability to be accepted into the prestigious Language Honor Society for that language. The Language Honor Society is a mix of students who excel in the language class they take.
With the school year winding down, there have been some changes at Nutley High School. Mr. Gaines is one of the many new additions to the staff. His current position is the new choir teacher. He is a leave replacement for Mrs. Monte while she is on maternity leave.
Mr. Gaines previously taught at The University Heights, a charter school in Newark. He taught there for four years, teaching general music to elementary and middle school students. Now, he is a teacher here at NHS and it has been a great experience for him.
Last year, Nutley High School began implementation of the Rotating Drop Schedule, which gives a common lunch hour to the entire school - students and staff. Curious to know how students use this time, the Maroon & Gray surveyed the student body. The entire NHS student body was offered the opportunity to take a survey about popular lunch locations in town.
Fall and winter trends change every year. This year, there are many new styles and a wider variety of options. Depending on where you live or what you prefer, styles may have an impact on the way you live. For example, as the seasons start to change, you cover up or wear less depending on climate or preference. Oversized sweaters and hoodies seem to always be in style during these seasons. “It is comfortable and stylish. It gives me a reason to wear oversized hoodies daily,” said Vanessa Antonio, a freshman at Nutley High School.
