Many people would agree that Dori McCarty is a very bright and driven student. This month she has earned January Student of the Month. Dori has worked very hard to earn this title.
In order to be considered Student of the Month, you have to meet specific requirements. The teachers look at attendance, grades, attitude, and your determination. Dori has met all these specific requirements.
Dori was asked how she feels about being chosen as Student of the Month.
She replied with, “I was surprised because I didn’t think I did anything worthy of getting Student of the Month.”
Dori was also asked about any added perks of being Student of the Month.
She replied, “I get a parking spot, but I don’t drive so it really doesn't count as a perk. There is also the added pride in it as well.”
Dori was asked one last question which was what advice would you give to a student who is trying to be Student of the Month.
She replied with, “Just be yourself and be kind to teachers and you will be noticed.”
Being chosen as Student of the Month is a big honor in our school. So next time you see Dori in the hallway, tell her congratulations.

For years New Haven High School has had a dark room set in the back of the art classroom. This year Mrs. Katie Borcherding was asked by a student, Keerstin Mason, to add paintings to the dark room walls.
Each independent art student was given six wall blocks to paint on. They could make it wide or skinny depending on their preference. The project in the dark room is not a required assignment. The independent art students are given the option to paint a spot in the classroom.
The dark room used to be used for photograph development. The school stopped this though because of the cost. The dark room hasn’t been in use for about six years. Many students sit back in the dark room to do different projects, but it has no other use than for the students.
Only independent art students are allowed to have a spot on the wall. According to Mrs. Borcherding, she hopes that “the mural project will be completed by independent students over the next 5 to 6 years.”
The independent art students have lots of different ideas. Lauralie Grater, senior, explains, “The plan is to make a sunset puzzle piece, but I might add in some things as I continue to make it.”
Dalyla Hurst, senior, states, “I’m putting a quote up on the wall with a blue background. The quote will be from the book The Great Gatsby.”
Dori McCarty, junior, comments, “I’m not sure what I’m going to do-- it’s still a work in progress.”
New Haven students and staff are excited to see the finished product of the paintings. They wish the best to the painters. Please note that, at the time of questioning, many students were unsure of their ideas, and that the concept may have changed during the painting process.

Every year parents of the senior students purchase senior ads. In their student’s ad, they can put baby pictures, along with a sweet message to their child, whether it is saying how proud they are of them or something funny. This can be a great way to keep all of the memories from when they were just a few days old to now as they are becoming independent adults.
The yearbook class, along with the art teacher, Mrs. Katie Borcherding, put together the senior ads for the students and parents.
Seniors were asked what they think their parents/guardians wrote. Meagan Holtmeyer commented, “It will either be super funny or sound really stupid and cheesy and ‘we love you’.”
“Honestly, something really embarrassing,” mentioned Johnna Bloch.
Paige Remillard said, ”I'm pretty sure my paragraph is going to be super embarrassing.”
Lydia Otten voiced, “I think they wrote something that I should really listen to and remember for years to come.”
“I'm sure whatever my parents wrote was probably funny and sarcastic,” commented Lauren Hoerstkamp.
The senior class commented on what kind of pictures their family put-- if they were embarrassing, cute, etc. Natalie Pecaut said her pictures probably are “embarrassing and cute.”
“The pictures were cute, but they mostly showed my character, which most often was embarrassing,” commented Lexy Sidwell.
McKenzie Overschmidt said her pictures were probably “crazy and funny and maybe a little embarrassing.”
Keerstin Mason mentioned, “I think some of my pictures might actually be kind of cute since my mom decided to do an ad from her and an ad from my dad.”
McKenzie Pecaut expressed, “My pictures could be a little embarrassing but parents might think they are cute.”
As their last year of high school comes to a close, their senior ad is just one of the many things that will give our senior students a flashback to their years at New Haven High.
