Walk to End Alzheimers

Attention all New Tech faculty, staff, students, and parents; urgent message!  Local authorities have asked for our help in capturing America’s most wanted criminal.  This criminal is the worst thief in the world because he steals minds—mind crimes are the worst kind.  His name is Al Zheimers.  His kryptonite is purple and loud noises.  On Saturday morning the NTI Caped Crusaders will meet between 7:30 and 8 a.m. in the Hadi Shrine parking lot on Riverside Dr where we will gear up for the fight---wear your crime fighter costume or deck out in purple and bring your noisemakers.  NTI currently has the largest fighting team so please come out and bring your friends (if you have any who will get up that early) your cousins, your cousins’ cousins, everyone you know—if they will come, bring them even if you don’t know them!!!  Meet us for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s disease downtown Saturday morning.  We must eliminate this memory thief, Al Zheimers!

NTI Receives a Grant for Outdoor Lab and Natural Area

Mr. Doug Johnson recently received a $750 grant from Ms. Amy Walker and the Public Education Foundation to be spent on our new outdoor lab and natural area.  The outdoor lab and natural area will have two major parts.  One part will be left to grow without human intervention.  A second part will grow naturally, but we will plant locally adapted wild plants that would be the plants we would find were such an area left to grow without invasive species.   Additionally, in this area we will remove any invasive plants (such as Johnson grass) that we find growing.  A diversity survey will be conducted each year on each part of the Outdoor Lab, and the results compared, not only to the two parts of the lab but also to parts of the grounds that continue to be mowed.  Finally, signage will be erected to identify the area as an Outdoor Lab/Natural Area.
