    Between the 60’s and the 80’s, Nardin changed quite a bit; but between the 80’s and today, Nardin changed even more. Nardin’s dance and zumba teacher, Mrs. Kiener, graduated from Nardin in 1990, but experienced Nardin in the late 80’s. Over two decades, the skirts at Nardin slowly got a bit shorter. By the 80’s, girls wore skirts just above the knee. According to Mrs. Kiener, no one dared break the dress code rules. Other rules we...

    As you may have heard, last Tuesday, February 6, a Tesla Roadster was shot into space on a rocket. This is by far one of the coolest things that could possibly happen to a car, and of course, Elon Musk is behind all this. This Tesla was launched during the test of the new Falcon Heavy rocket, currently the most powerful rocket in the world. The test itself was mostly successful; only a center engine core was lost upon an attempted landing. This, on its own, is ve...

Austen-tatious Day!

C. Krabak '19

On December 15, 2017, Nardin Academy students and faculty gathered together for an exciting day of activity to celebrate the timeless work of Jane Austen and to commemorate the 200th anniversary of her death. After assembling in the gym to watch the 2005 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, the Nardin community spent the day immersed in a variety of workshops straight out of the Regency Era. Thanks to the hard work put in by both teachers and guest speaker Dr. Kim Simpson, Austen-tatious Day proved to be a major success as students learned about the societal standards that eighteenth-century female authors had to overcome in order to make their voices heard.
