Nico Savini is much more than a hype video


Eileen Flynn, Reporter @eileen_courant Between classes, homework, and family obligations, most high school students are only able to make time for one serious extracurricular activity. However, sophomore Nico Savini manages to pursue both his love for football and his passion for media.

New, user-friendly library website and database access


Eva Pace, Arts & Tech Editor @espcourant Let’s be honest, how many NCHS students turn to the library databases first-thing once they’re assigned a research project? The answer is very few.

For most high school students, this is no small feat. Yet, Junior Eden Neleman’s talent for photography landed her the opportunity to share her artwork in a collage exhibition, titled “The Garden of Eden”, at Bankwell in New Canaan. Eden’s talent for art stems not only from personal motivation, but also from inspiration from her parents. “I’ve always had the art genes from my parents,” Eden said. “But I…

“Draw the Line” art show colors halls of NCHS


Jillian Augustine, Arts & Tech Editor @JillAugCourant Student interests, extracurriculars, and hobbies are a big part of what makes up the rich culture of New Canaan High School. This is why the art department makes a conscious effort to share the work of student artists and incorporate it into everyday life at the school. One of the best ways to assimilate student art into school life is through the various art shows that take place throughout the year. These shows typically feature anywhere from 50 to 100 student artists. They are curated, set up, and run by a group of…
