More than 200 North Canton Middle School students dressed in orange Tuesday to support a pair of classmates touched by tragedy.
Earlier this week, more than 200 students arrived at North Canton Middle School wearing Viking orange in support of two classmates recently devastated by the unexpected loss of their father. The students organized it with cell phone texts and social media messages. They planned it without the help of teachers. They did it to convey a feeling that couldn’t be expressed in words. “Spontaneously, without any adult assistance, coaxing, or knowledge, hundreds of. . .friends and fellow students arrived to school (on Tuesday) wearing orange,” said NCMS teacher Todd Dannemiller. “This alone is no small feat. We don't see this kind of participation on Spirit Day!” “I think it was just very heart warming. . .an amazing show of support,” said NCMS …

Hoover High senior Zach Acito stopped by North Canton Middle School Thursday to share with his sister Paige's classmates the story of his trip to India
When Zach Acito arrived in Sitarampuram, India, he and his youth group members were showered with strings of colorful flowers. Their hosts stayed in small huts while the youth group stayed in an elaborate, beautiful guest house. They were treated, as Acito said, "like kings." "It was just really different for me," he said. "I had never experienced being placed in so much honor like that. In our culture, we take each other for granted. Not that we don't care about each other. But this really changed my perspective." The Hoover High senior spoke inside North Canton Middle School Thursday about his youth group's trip to the India village. Students in three sixth-grade classes listened as Acito shared his story of the December 2011-January …

North Canton Patrolman Matthew Rahde will take the plunge into ice-cold water at the Columbus Zoo Feb. 16 to raise money for the Ohio Special Olympics
When police officers step into their uniforms, they're ready for a multitude of situations. But for Patrolman Matt Rahde, when he puts on his North Canton police uniform Feb. 16, he's just in for a very cold, very uncomfortable situation. The police officer will, for the second time, take a plunge into a swimming pool filled with ice-cold water as part of the annual Polar Plunge at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, which raises money for Special Olympics Ohio. The event is one of nine plunges taking place throughout Ohio between November 2012 and March 2013. Even though he's a returning participant, he's still expecting a shivering experience. "It's cold," Rahde summed it up. "You hit that water, it definitely takes your breath away." Rahde, …

Staff at North Canton Middle School decorated pumpkins that resemble Frankenstein, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and a "boo-ling" pin — just to name a few characters
North Canton Middle School staff got pretty wacky when asked to decorate a pumpkin for the first-ever Staff Pumpkin Decorating Raffle this year.
