Everyone has a favorite school lunch or a favorite subject. A recent survey was sent out to NHHS to discover what kinds of “favorites” students share-- in particular, their favorite lunches and subjects. The results of this survey are as listed below.
Cecelia Malone, junior, was asked what her favorite school lunch was. She responded with, “I love the breaded chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy. It just tastes really good.” Her favorite school subject is math because “it relaxes her and relieves her stress when she accomplishes an equation."
Lydia Otten, sophomore, was asked what her favorite lunch was. Her reply was, “I would pick hamburgers because who doesn't love hamburgers?”
Meagan Holtmeyer, sophomore, was also asked what her favorite lunch was. She said, “Something with mashed potatoes. I don’t care what it is, but the mashed potatoes are the best because they are [so] creamy.”
Owen Borcherding, freshman, said that his favorite lunch was chicken alfredo because “it just tastes so good, and it fills him up.” He was asked if he thinks they should serve it more. He said, “Yes, because I only had it three times this year, and I remember not having it as much as all the other meals.”
Dianna Ribera, junior, was asked what her favorite school subject was. She responded, “Art/Commercial Arts [would be my favorite because] I can be as creative as I want and I can learn some new things when I'm working on a project. I like being able to show New Haven videos I have made for the students whenever we have an event going on.”
Alyssa Sidwell, freshman, said that her favorite subject was math. “I've always liked math. I like learning new equations, memorizing numbers, and learning about binomials and trinomials.”
Johnna Bloch, sophomore, talked about her favorite subject, and said what her previous favorite subject was as well. “I would have to say Foods because I love cooking. Child Development used to be my favorite class, but now I [just] love [to cook].
Miranda Durbin, junior, was asked what her favorite subject was. She responded, “I like all of my subjects, even if I'm not good at them. I do especially like math, mostly when it's only easy material.”
In response to whether or not it had always been her favorite, Miranda added, “Sort of. Math has always been a favorite of mine, and I'm not sure why. I just like it. But I hate it too, but only because it can go wrong and [get] confusing really quickly.”
There were a lot of similarities with favorite subjects among the students. Out of all the given responses, 7 students said Math was their favorite; 2 students picked English; 1 student picked Science; 5 students picked other activities such as P.E. and Art. 1 student also said that both Math and English were their favorites.
According to the survey results, there was a variety of favorite lunches such as pizza, chicken alfredo, holiday meals, etc.
