Tickets will be pre-sold by the SkillsUSA members, theses sales help the students offset their cost of going to state, so if you know of a SkillsUSA member please support them. Tickets for this years event are $7 for adults, $6 for SkillsUSA/VICA Alumni, $5 for children 12 and under. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The Varsity Cheerleading squad held their annual Elementary Cheer Camp night on September 6. They had an amazing turnout this year. The squad enjoys teaching the young cheerleaders cheers and a short dance to perform during the football game. All of the participants really seemed to enjoy themselves.
A Friday tradition at Fort Calhoun Elementary is the first graders and sixth graders reading together. This gives the younger students a chance to develop a bond with the older students while working on learning to read and working on listening skills. It also allows the older students a chance to model proper behaviors and reading strategies.
Fort Calhoun did well at the Arlington Cross Country Invite. The girls were 2nd and the boys were 1st. Girls that medalled: Mandy Hansen – 4th, Katie Edie – 5th, Abby Hillmer – 6th, Sarah Determan – 8th, and Anna Gepson – 10. Boys that medalled: Ben Everswick 1st, Alex Tietz – 2nd, Adam Robinson – 4th, and Sean Ramey – 9th.
The Fort Calhoun Pioneers won their home invite on Saturday September 7th. They defeated Logan View the first game in three sets. The scores were: 25-6 / 21-25 / 25-22. In the championship game they defeated David City in two sets. The scores were: 25-11 / 25-13. The Pioneers next contests will be at the Malcolm Invite which take place Thursday and Saturday this week. Great Job and Good Luck Ladies!
