Your eyes and ears of the Student Coalition


Hey Everyone, Congrats on a successful Homecoming Week! We got such positive feedback from the administration and we couldn’t have done it with out all of you.

In the past, Homecoming had operated on different terms. Student Body President Dolly Meckler reflected on years past, “The bonfire was just mean, spirit week was crazy and just a big distraction, and Homecoming was not breathalyzed,” she said…

Welcome to the Courant Online!


The Courant Online began as the Rampage, a website found on the drop menu of the New Canaan High School library home page. While the Rampage provided a forum for posting articles, it wasn’t ideal for online journalism. The Rampage was limited to a hosting software called School Center that limited what journalism students could do technology-wise. The biggest issue was that the host didn’t allow videos, images, and comment boxes–things that would surely make the website an exciting destination for news. Students with similar aspirations to achieve a more interactive online newspaper got together to create a whole new…
