February 15 through February 19, New Haven High celebrated homecoming with a spirit week. Each day there was a different theme, and each student who participated won spirit points for their class.
Dig through those bookshelves, closets, and dry basements for books, DVDs and CDs to donate to the upcoming book sale sponsored by the East Central College Library.
Through noon on Friday, March 18, the Library will accept gently used books including fiction titles, children’s books, and nonfiction. Books and magazines on hot topics such as diet, exercise, and cooking can also be contributed to the sale. They will also accept DVDs, Blu-rays and music CDs since many of those can be added to the Library's circulating collection. Encyclopedia sets or Readers Digest condensed books will not be accepted.
The Mercy Clinic in New Haven, MO encourages healthy minds as well as healthy bodies! A couple of years ago Emma King started donating her personal books to the clinic where her mom, Barb King FNP, works when she learned that some children didn’t have a lot of books to read. This developed into “Emma’s Books” where children may choose a book to take home after their visit to the clinic. Emma’s classmates at Our Lady of Lourdes in Washington, MO recently began donating their books as an “Act of Kindness” to Emma as a way to honor her dad’s life. Not long ago, the Library Leaders at New Haven Elementary School held a book drive at school to collect books for the waiting area at the Mercy Clinic in New Haven. One of the Library Leaders, Lane O’Hern, built a bookshelf for this project with help from his parents. Lane’s grandfather, Larry Hanks, donated the materials and help paint the book shelf. On Wednesday, February 17, 2016 the Library Leaders delivered the shelf and over 100 books to the clinic. The Library Leaders got to meet Emma, too! These young people understand the importance of books and want to share their enthusiasm for reading with the New Haven community!

I look over the horizon of the city, watching as the sky changes from a dull blue to burnt oranges and crisp reds, following the burning ball of fury. I clench my fists by my side, knowing what will come of the night. Car horns blare and sirens wail throughout the city below, throwing me into the growing reality of my plan. Not only will I have him on my tail tonight, I will have the police and SWAT team right behind me. I never really thought about the police force taking part to reverse my devious plan to infiltrate the city, but will it really change my mind? No, definitely not.

If you have ever been to a sporting event here at New Haven High School, you probably noticed the little old lady who always shows up carrying her tan-and-dark-green bleacher seat with her. You may know her, or you may not. Her name is Carolyn Scheer and many would consider her a number one fan of Shamrock sports.
Coming March 5, Shamrock Shindig from 10:00am to 1:00pm at Old New Haven School, 810 Maupin Avenue. This Family Program will open at 10am with Irish dance by students from Holy Infant School in Ballwin. The students will perform and give a demonstration of dance steps for anyone who might wish to learn. Storyteller Paul Schwartzkopf will entertain with tales of leprechauns and Irish lore at 11:00am. Storytime for preschool and school age kids is scheduled for noon.

Almost everyone has heard the old saying: “A dog is a man’s best friend.” However, any pet can become a best friend.
Animals that were once considered to be exotic, such as lizards or snakes, are now becoming common household pets.
New Haven Elementary Service Leaders hosted the "We Love our Pet " service project from February 1 to February 15, 2016. Students were encouraged to bring in pictures of their pets which were posted for all to see. The students were then allowed to vote with pennies. Each penny counted as one vote. Service leaders also sold "pet-grams" for a quarter a piece. The students earned a total of $667.24! All proceeds were donated to the Franklin County Humane Society in Union, MO. The "top dogs" were allowed to visit school on Friday, February 19, 2016 for the check presentation. The dogs bringing in the most money were "Nilly"- Logan William's 5th grade, "Gunner" - Xavier Hamann 1st grade, "Scout" - Madison McCarty 5th grade, and "Oliver"- Mitchell and Aubri Meyer 6th and 4th grade.
The service leaders also collected newpaper and will continue collecting for the rest of the school year. Thanks to everyone who donated to this project!
