Juniors raise $11,297 for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation brad ehilegbu STAFF WRITER
or the past few years, juniors Kyla Babson and Alicia Richards have been interested in hosting a race to support Cystic Fibrosis
because of how it has affected their families. On Saturday, March 31st, they hosted the first annual 5K4CFF race with more than 100 participants at the Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, which is known for an excellent Cross Country Track.

with it at the age of eleven. Alicia, my good friend, also has a personal connection to CF – her dad has the disease. His life-long struggle with CF has included a double lung transplant, as well as a kidney transplant. My heart goes out to Maggie, Alicia’s dad, and others who have CF, so I want to do my part to help. Alicia has joined with me, and we are organizing this 5K run to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which supports research for CF.”
According to Kyla Babson’s website:

Participants registered through a website created for the event. Babson and Richards got sponsors for food, drink, shirts, and massages as well. Babson told of their family connections on her website: “Since cystic fibrosis runs on both sides of my family, I have a personal connection to the disease and am very interested in finding treatments and a cure for it. My mom’s cousin died of the disorder when he was twelve years old and my dad’s niece, Maggie, currently is struggling

“Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects more then 30,000 children and adults in the United States alone. This disease causes thick, sticky mucus to build up in the lungs, digestive organs, and other areas of the body. These secretions in CF patients clog lungs, causing dirt and germs to be trapped, resulting in life-threatening lung infections. In the digestive organs, necessary enzymes are blocked by the secretion buildup causing malabsorption of nutrients of the patient. The insulin cells in the pancreas can be destroyed by the mucus obstruction leading to a form of diabetes, and in the liver toxins, can accumulate causing severe liver damage.”
3 Behind the Trigger of Campus Shooters News
Personality traits of shooters and information about how prepared Ravenscroft campus is in an emergency situation eric iseley STAFF WRITER
olumbine, Virginia Tech, and now Chardon. In the small town of Chardon, Ohio (population 5,100), a teenage student opened fire in the cafeteria which resulted in three student deaths and 2 wounded students on February 27, 2012. This school is located about 30 miles from Cleveland and has an enrollment of 1,100. The suspect, T.J. Lane, 17, reported that he chose his victims randomly and was described as a loner who was bullied. Other recent school shootings in the United States include a 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech University in which 33 people were killed and a 1999 incident at Columbine High School in Colorado killing 12 students and 1 teacher. The Nevarmore investigates campus security at Ravenscroft with an interview with Dennis Lane, Director of Security.
How well is Ravenscroft prepared for a shooter? R
avenscroft has instituted many security measures in recent years including the creation of the position that Dennis Lane currently holds as our Director of Protective Services. Precautions that he has instituted in his tenor here include radios for instant communication, professionally trained off-duty police officers, as well as a more secure perimeter with the advent of the new gates on campus. All of these make us a safer community, but should something like this happen here, are we well prepared? Lane believes that while a shooter on our campus would be exceedingly unlikely, we are prepared. Dennis Lane There is at least one armed off duty Director of Protective Services police officer on campus at all times Photo by LifeTouch when students are on campus. So, if a shooter were here on-campus, our offduty police officer is already here and armed to protect us until backup arrives. The gates are locked at times when school has closed for the day making our campus less accessible. The gates could be closed and secured during the school day if an armed suspect were in the vicinity of the campus; providing a barrier to entry. On the whole, Ravenscroft is a very safe school. “There has only been one fight since I’ve been here,” says Lane. But just as all schools do, we have our moments that we are not particularly proud of. For instance, in 2010, an alumni speaker had to be removed from the Baccalaureate Ceremony for inappropriate and worrisome remarks during his speech at St. Raphael’s Church. In order to have a safer school, we all must buy into the idea. The measures are there. We have the guards. We have the gates. We have a security team. Lane adds that in addition to the items listed above, he relies heavily on the people within the Ravenscroft Community to communicate potential problems in a proactive manner. Lane notes that in all of the recent school shootings, there were warning signs and people were aware of threatening statements or actions by the shooter and failed to alert school officials. Lane will agree to keep sources of information anonymous and welcomes any concern from our community members.

3 Main Profiles of School Shooters
1 2 3
The mentally disturbed, who
have hallucinations and often have voices in their heads telling them to kill. But this group makes up only about five percent of school shooters.
The second group is perhaps
the most disturbing. These are kids who appear normal. They are typically very intelligent and would never be suspected of this kind of behavior. The root of why they commit a shooting is underneath this façade of normalcy.
kids are usually emotionally disturbed, socially alienated, troubled, conflicted, angry, and depressed. This profile makes up about 30 percent.

Study Hall With No Hall? Ravenscroft Upper School is over-crowded with 450 students in a building created for 400
Paige Schafer & caroline margolis STAFF WRITERs
ou can’t go off campus because that’s a senior “privilege.” Even when you’re a senior, eating out is too expensive to do so every day of the week. You can’t eat in the hallways because that would ruin the gorgeous, ornate carpet. You can’t eat in Rhonda’s because 300 students don’t fit around 10 tables. You can’t eat in the cafeteria because by the time you make it up there you might be soaking wet from a torrential downpour. So the question is, where’s a kid to go? Not only during lunch, but study hall, Common Period, or break. If you can’t sit here, there, or there, the question is, where can you sit? “I don’t think (overcrowding) is a problem, I think it’s an issue that’s discussed often. The two things that affect the school and community are the lack of places for students to socialize when they have free time and when teachers let them out of class early. A problem would be something like parking during graduation,” explains Kevin Billerman, Assistant
Head of Upper School. However, he did agree that, “our hallways are tight because of the locker placement, and it seems crowded when people are changing classes.” Billerman realizes the eating space inside the high school is limited. Instead of eating inside, he suggests eating, “in the cafeteria, where there are 100 chairs, the Gonet Gateway, or the rose garden walkway.” On rainy days, he understands that it is harder to find places to eat. “I’ve become more lenient about eating in the hallway during those circumstances. Many times I’ve had to loosen those restraints on where people can eat,” Billerman says. “Mr. Pruden is working on the first issue with regards to our new area in the Finley Center and how it’ll be utilized,” adds Billerman in regard to future expansion plans. Bill Pruden, Head of Upper School, says he is aware of the space issue in the Upper School and is try-

ing to respond to the spatial demand. He is committed to finding a solution for hard working, diligent students who are looking for a quiet place to study. He also understands that there is not a “senior study hall” for underclassmen and that accommodations should also be made for those students. Some suggestions proposed
by Pruden were to move two or three classes up to the new space in the Finley Center to free up a classroom or two for a study area or a “lounge” with couches. One suggestion for a class relocation is Mandarin. However, finding other classes to relocate will be difficult. The absence of eating spots in
the high school is very obvious and faculty members are aware of the issue. Thankfully, adjustments will be made in future years to provide more places for students to eat lunch or hang out with their friends. For the time being, people will have to continue snatching tables at Rhonda’s or praying for a warm, sunny day.
Thank you so much to everyone in the journalism class. You all have been amazing this year, and I appreciate all of your hard work.
Without you, The Nevamore wouldn’t be the newspaper that students love. Thank you, Angelika Barth, for the beautiful January and May covers! Also, I appreciate all of the editing you have helped with over the past year! Caroline Scales and Katherine Finney, you have been the best editors I could have asked for. We’ve spent hours and hours together in the Cave trying to produce a great paper, while having a great time. I had so much fun listening to 80’s rap and 90’s boy bands, while editing sports pages and trying to write editorials. We have accounted for half of the views on the Sponge Lady video, and for that, I consider our time well spent. My best memories from senior year have come from those editing sessions. No matter where life takes you, don’t forget your Ouija board! Last but not least, I want to thank Mrs. Velk. We couldn’t have gotten a single paper out without you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work as editor of The Nevarmore. It has been an amazing experience. I have eggs-cellent memories from journalism class, beginning in sophomore year, and not ending until the day I graduate. XOXO, Sarah

The class of 2012 is approaching graduation, but the classes of 2013, 2014, and 2015 have years ahead. It may be too late for the seniors, but for the rest of the Upper School, we comprised a bucket list for your next years at Ravenscroft.
Students at Ravenscroft are only required to take 4.5 years of English. But many find that after taking Journalism, they have learned a different type of writing than they were taught in their English classes. We are not just trying to plug the class because we are the editors. We learned how to combine visual and writing components, as well as the learned new programs like Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
Morning Meeting Announcement MAKE ONE!
If you’re a shy person, getting up on stage in front of 450 people is the last thing on your agenda. But, making an announcement during Morning Meeting, believe it or not, can help you get over the timidness, just speak loudly and clearly.

Play Jesus Ball
Jesus Ball is the Ravenscroft Upper School FCA’s form of dodgeball. It’s an experience that you must have at least once, even if the only thing you gain is use of the name itself.
Get Yelled At By
While it may not sound fun to be yelled at by a Ravenscroft football coach, stories about being yelled at by Coach Gonet are often the most memorable, and everybody’s got one.
Athletic Director Coach Michelle Piette has more stories than you can count on the hands of the senior class about Ravenscroft. From the hilarious to the outrageous, she has seen any sports injury you can imagine, and it would be fully worth your time to talk to her about any sports event that has happened in the past few decades at Ravenscroft.
Ms.Rhonda About Her Dogs
Everybody knows Ms. Rhonda. But have you ever stopped to chat while going for a snack? If you have, you probably have heard about her many canine companions. She takes great pride in those dogs, even showing them at dog shows. It’s a heartwarming conversation that will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day.
Cookie/Muffin From Rhonda’s
The legendary cookies and muffins from Rhonda’s are a great breakfast, snack, or lunch. But, get there early, because by the end of the day these tasty treats are long gone.
It’s pretty much one of the coolest pieces of technology in the Upper School, so why not?
Although most people only take the class to get their Fine Arts graduation requirement and it was formerly regarded as a “bummy” class, stagecraft is a great way to get to know Mr. V, one of the funniest teachers at Ravenscroft. Painting and building a set can become therapeutic and stress-relieving amidst a hectic day.
Senior dress-up day: GO ALL-OUT!

We left to wash our hands for snack, and he had escaped! In the spring, before releasing them into the butterfly gardens, our butterflies sat on a piece of banana on our noses.

The entire grade level also went back in time with the major production of The Time Machine - the ultimate test of memorization.

In Science Lab, we got to build a bridge. Or maybe we played while Mr. Gatt built a bridge?

during recess, in which everyone disagreed over the rules. Our two day, once night stay at Camp Kanata was a chance to do and see new things with activities and visitors, including the cloggers from NC State, the man who made fire. We didn’t know him yet, but Dr. Wehrli came and rode his unicycle.

Life got interesting as all of us had different teachers for
Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. We enjoyed more freedom of movement then ever before. With this freedom, came increased responsibility and increased homework though! In Science class, we built paper marble roller coasters. For many people, the most memorable event of Lower School was the three day, two night trip to Williamsburg. We were taped into our rooms at night so they could tell at a glance if we had even tried to escape. Though it rained for much of the trip, most people enjoyed the freedom.

We revelled the opportunity to spend a class on Ms. Phelps’ loft,
as each day she rotated through the class roster. For Moonlight Math we stayed up past our bedtimes to play games, do mazes, and all sorts of mathematical activities. At the end, we ate too much ice cream and got canvas bags which we decorated the next morning at school after sleeping in. In the spring, the highlight of the year was, for many, the Masonboro Island trip.

Eighth grade was spent dealing with even more drama.
We enjoyed science classes with Mr. Phillips, but were desperate to get to high school, where we could chew gum and wear flipflops. The mountain trip offered a glimpse of the adventure to come in 3 years.
As Freshmen, many of us were petrified to walk down Senior Hall
for 6th Period Honors Biology. We left on our trek long before the five minute bell rang at lunch and then tried to avoid tripping over the Seniors who had been bold enough to eat under their lockers. That was a time when pranks were rampant. In Mid-May, the Seniors ran around one day at lunch with water guns, and Saran wrapped some of our peers to light poles. Our grade was also changed with the addition of many new people.
his year, our advisories bonded a little more, and we were more comfortable in the high school, but our classes continued to challenge us. On the second day of school, we sat through a day of Honor Council presentations. In the Spring we got a chance to volunteer at Special Olympics.

All four of these comedies brought something different to the table and had the audience laughing nonstop for 2 nights in a row. After this great night they all not long after had there own TV show which many people watched because of the “Kings of Comedy” was so funny.
Ravenscroft’s Strange Obsessions
Emily swallow M
y Strange Addiction is series on television that shows the stories of individuals battling strange obsessions. I have already witnessed some strange addictions and obsessions of pupils at Ravenscroft
after being at Ravenscroft for only three months. The most obvious obsession is that of DJ Langley and Madison Jones. They both have a crazy obsession with shoes. Many study halls are spent looking at the latest shoes that have been released on the “Flight Club” website, and Langley says that he spends almost $1000

every year on buying shoes. At almost $200 a pair, it is not a cheap obsession to have, especially when he owns over 15 pairs. Langley says that his favorite pair of shoes are “Air Jordan 9” because they are out of the movie Space Jam. He loves Jordan shoes the most because he says they are a beautiful shoe with history, and they don’t get old. They are useful for playing basketball in and also for day to day use. I have never seen two guys so obsessed with shoes, this may be because basketball is not such a popular sport in England so I do not see that type of shoes often. Another strange noteworthy obsession is Sarah Fritsch and her love for Harry Potter. Although Harry Potter was written by an English author, JK Rowling, and all the characters are played by English actors, it appears that many more people like the films here in America than they do in England. Fritsch has read each book at least three times and says that she has probably watched each movie a similar amount of times. She used to play games pretending she was Harry Potter when she was younger and also still wants to visit Harry Potter World at Universal Studios in Orlando. Her favorite character is Hermione Granger and her favorite spell is alohomora (used to open and unlock doors.) Fritsch even used

the Harry Potter theme tune as her senior slide show music. There are many people in England who have not even read the books or seen any of the films despite the fact that they are on TV all the time. While Harry Potter is very popular in both England and America, here people obsess over it more as is evident by the number of people who participate in the notorious Harry Potter game, Quidditch. There is a team here at Ravenscroft, and on a recent visit to New York, I saw at least three games of Quidditch being played in Central Park over the period of two days. Cathleen Pruden also has a strange obsession with picking erasers. She began doing it at first when she was stressed or bored but it has now turned into a habit and she
does it constantly. Katherine Belk, Math Instructor, has two Ziploc containers of eraser shavings in her room from when Cathleen has picked her erasers during Pre-Calculus class. Many people like to have clean hands all the time but I have never met someone who has such a need to constantly be “sanitary” as Laura Beacham. She claims to have taken at least three different sanitizers on the Junior Mountain trip, making sure one was unscented so that she didn’t attract too many insects. Her sanitizer is offered around before every meal, and when Tracy Winston tried to touch her drink, Laura shouted “DON’T TOUCH IT! YOUR HANDS ARE UNSANITARY!” If you ever have unclean hands, Laura is the person to look out for!
Crash Course In Ravenscroft Driving Layla tanik & Drew GaGNON
Students share stories of close encounters
of the vehicular kind... Though there is a strict 15 mph speed limit here at Ravenscroft, it still has its fair share of driving mishaps and reckless drivers. Students shared their stories of times in the past where strange occurrences have happened behind the wheel.

Tracy Winston, ‘12 Winston shared her experience of dangerous times on the rough streets of downtown Raleigh. “One time about a month after I got my licence, I went the wrong way on a one-way street in downtown Raleigh. To this day I refuse to drive in downtown without someone who knows the streets.”
When Tanik was 14, she was casually driving home from tennis practice. “I didn’t know that the car wouldn’t straighten out itself,” says Tanik of the accident. Next thing she knew, she was driving towards her neighbors trash cans. After blazing through those, she attempted to hit the brakes. “I panicked trying to brake and accidentally slammed on the gas,” explained Tanik. She finally came to a stop as she hit a tree in the middle of her neighbors yard. This event traumatized Tanik for quite some time, but she assures us that her driving ability has come “leaps and bounds” since that reckless day.
Drew Gagnon, ‘13 The first week Gagnon had her license she was drove home from school each day, usually with a friend. As she was passing Wild Wood Golf Course something came shooting down from the sky and smashed her windshield. “It sounded like a gunshot,” said Gagnon. Her windshield had cracked, reaching to all the sides of her windshield. Gagnon was startled by the incident.
Ravens Soar Over Spring Break Alexus Baldwin & Baraka Mutisya STAFF WRITER
s soon as April hits, every student looks forward to Spring Break with many anticipating a trip that they had been planning for the whole year. Trips with friends and family are always memorable and will stay with you for the rest of your life. No matter what students decide to do over break, it is, they usually enjoy every moment of it. Often, for Spring Break, Ravens look forward to beaches, warm weather, flowers blooming, and bikinis. The places that people are attracted to the most is Islands and places where you couldn’t even imagining going in the cold weather.
Catherine Green, ‘12
of Lax, Caroline Margolis, ‘12, went to Key West, Florida, for the entire week. Margolis, along with other senior girls from Ravenscroft left on Monday, April 10th and returned on Sunday, April 15th. Marogolis enjoyed her journey to Key West because of the beaches, tans and time spent with friends. Margolis thinks the best break during the school year is Thanksgiving Break because she enjoys sharing turkey and time with her family. She has also been to Belize, Grand Cayman, and the Bahamas, with her favorite being Grand Cayman.
Lewis Stocks, ‘12, and Alex Bowen, ‘12
lex Bowen, ‘12, went all the way to Barbados for a six days. Bowen said that nothing is better than a good ole family vacation and the best part of Spring Break is not having to worry about school work and no stress. Bowen left the first Saturday of Spring Break and returned on Thursday, April 12th. Bowen has also been to Costa Rica, Bahamas, and Clearwater Beach in Florida for Spring Breaks in the past. His favorite out of all of them was Costa Rica because he thinks you can never go wrong with “the beaches and beauties.” But his favorite of our breaks is our December Holiday Break.
avenscroft seniors have been doing internships at the end of their senior year for about 30 years, according to Michelle Piette, Associate Athletic Director, who oversees the internship program. Piette believes that the program provides a good transition into college. “It’s a good way for students to get their feet wet in the real world. Internships can be used to figure out what your interests are. If you really enjoy your internship, then you know that is something you would be interested in as a future job. Some students have even graduated college and then come back and taken a job from the business that they interned with. If you do not enjoy your internship, that way you know what does not interest you and you can continue and pursue other professions,” explains Piette. Most internships are within the state of North Carolina but a few students go out of state each year. Occasionally, a student will go out of the country. Piette believes that going out of the state or country gives the student an opportunity to be even more independent and prepare themselves for the future. Seniors choose and setup their own internships. It is their job to contact the person they want to do an internship with, and set up the times and dates that they will be working.

Catherine Green went all
the way to Switzerland for eight days with her dad, Brielle Morton, and Parker Preston. Green’s dad gave this trip to her as a graduation gift. She left the first Saturday of Spring Break and returned Friday, April 13th. “It’s just a vacation with friends,” said Green. She said that skiing and eating was all they had to worry about. But Switzerland isn’t the only place she has been. Green has also been to Paris, Rome, Spain, and London. Her favorite is Paris. But out of all the all the holiday breaks, her favorite each year is Spring Break.
Hopefully, senior Andrew Franz has not bitten off more than he can chew with his internship at a pizza parlor in Chicago.

Sports Nevarmore Girls Lax Longs For State Crown THE
ver since the end of their season last year, the Girls Varsity Lacrosse team has had one goal in mind; winning a state championship. After losing to Durham Academy in the state semifinals, the Ravens have been preparing for the next opportunity that the new season brings. To senior captain Caroline Margolis, a State Championship is the only thing on her mind. This year’s team has high expectations this season with 4 strong seniors, lots of young talent, and third year Coach Phil Robinson and Coach

Kerry Norman. Senior Catherine Green is in her second year playing Varsity Girls Lacrosse. Green looks to end her high school career in a special fashion. Although she isn’t a team captain, she helps the several young players on the teams adjust to the varsity level. “Well, in field hockey I’m playing goalie as opposed to lacrosse I play defense. There is a lot more focus on endurance and agility. The whole team dynamics are different as well. Many don’t realize it but lacrosse is a lot like basketball. Lacrosse uses screens, similar formations, and there’s lots of one on one opportunities. Even the defensive principles are the same with needing be able to see the ball and your man. This is my last chance to get a state championship and I want it. There’s no better way to end my high school career than with a state championship and that’s what I’m striving for. Caroline leads the team vocally and by example. She controls the team offensively and defensively,” says Green. Senior Captain Caroline Margolis has taken on the leadership role this season. In Fall of 2011, Margolis committed to play Lacrosse for the Boston College Eagles. She also has high expectations for this season. “Charlotte Country Day; they have won states the past two years.” Margolis adds that the “freshman class [members of the team are] really strong and will contribute a lot this year. We just have to get team chemistry and learn how everyone plays,” says Margolis. This year’s team is filled with lots of young talent. Olivia Ashman, ‘15, plays mid-field and attack and has been making a big contribution to the team expanding off her varsity season from last year as an 8th grader. Ana Callawn, ‘16, also plays attack and mid field and the best part is she’s only in the 8th grade. Her age hasn’t kept her from being a big contributor at the varsity level.

Spotlight on Camuti brad ehilegbu & Jamie HERAKOVICH STAFF WRITERS
f you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting senior Alex Camuti, better known as just “Camuti”, then you are really missing out. In the words of Camuti himself: “I would say I’m a gravely serious person who enjoys the small beauties in life. My friends look up to me as a role model and they try to copy everything I do in an attempt to look cooler.” Some would say that he is a very gifted athlete because of his amazing goalie skills on the lacrosse field. Camuti has been playing goalie since his freshman year of high school back in New Jersey. Last season he had just over 160 saves, averaging about 8.5 saves a game.

Senior Editors: Wish You Well, Literally Sarah Collins Editor-In-Chief
I would like to express my sincere appreciation to
atherine, spelled the right way, also worked on The Nevarmore for three years. Sarah, our dedicated Editor-in-Chief, who worked diligently on The Nevarmore for three years. And while she ‘is a cat-lover and she loves to run,’ she is also “awesome.” Sarah skated her way into journalism class as a Yes she is, dude, don’t lie! soft-spoken sophomore with her sweet smile, obvious Katherine strives to make each issue as perfect as intellect and a genuine interest in covering school possible and was willing to stay to the bitter end of news. She usually completed her articles well before the editing sessions. She is “deadlines” and consistently volunteered to write conscientious about word choice and each and extra pieces for the newspaper. every detail involved in our newspaper. Sarah is truly a good egg and is everything she is I will miss my editor and advisee and I would write a cracked up to be - no yolk! song about it, but, if I did, I know Katherine would Sarah, while I will miss you next year, never remember the lyrics. Not that it would stop her I know that you have all the write moves to succeed from singing her own version at the top of her lungs at the next level. in quite a convincing manner! All the Best,
