The city of Novato has an array of different cuisines available, yet sushi is by far its most interesting. So, Ava Francis-Hall and Zaira Vaquero took it upon themselves to visit four of the five main sushi places in Novato to uncover the best sushi in the hometown of Novato high schoolers. To review the restaurants accurately and fairly, we ordered salmon and tuna nigiri, a rainbow roll, and strawberry mochi from every place. For all of you sushi newbies, nigiri is raw fish placed on top of vinegar rice, and a rainbow roll is a California roll with an assortment of raw fish and avocado on top. For all you Japanese dessert newbies, mochi is a ball of ice cream encapsulated in a thick layer of pounded sticky rice cake. Let’s get rolling!

Novato High leadership students took charge earlier this month, to pull off one of the school’s most anticipated fundraisers: the fashion show. Despite the stressful preparation process and a few mishaps, the Old Gym was transformed into a glamorous runway that hosted a variety of students and parents for an unforgettable, around-the-world themed event. After years of NHS fashion shows dating back to 1989, this year’s marked Novato High’s final extravaganza due to the imbalance of work it takes to the amount of money raised.
