FBLA Raised $400 for the Kamie K. Preston Hereditary Cancer Foundation

As a means to advocate for breast cancer awareness, students and staff purchased t-shirts from FBLA during the month of October. The club raised $400 from the t-shirt orders, which will be donated to the Kamie K. Preston Hereditary Cancer Foundation and will be able to cover one single site genetic test. October 27th was designated as a Pink Out day at school and pink was worn at the last home football and volleyball games in October as well.

The Great Race – Adventure… Intrigue… Competition… Prizes!

The GREATRACE is making its return to Fort Calhoun Jr. High!

Join us Tuesday November 10th at 6:30 pm. to begin the adventure.

This is your family’s chance to show its “world dominance” as you compete in challenges in cities from around the world.

Is your team up to the challenge?

 Teams will be given a passport to travel through each of the cities around campus. At each stop, your team will complete a challenge to receive a clue and passport stamp. Once you have obtained your 10 stamps and clues, those clues will lead you to your final destination.   You must work together and use your wits to be victorious!

 Amazing prizes for the top three finishing teams!

 Please RSVP to Mrs. Johnson at karlijohnson@ftcpioneers.org to join THE GREATRACE!

Second Grade News

Second grade has been talking about the components that help make up a classroom family. Today we read How Full is Your Bucket by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer. We discussed what we can do to be bucket fillers and how filling others’ buckets, also fills our own. The students filled each others’ buckets with written comments. Then we reflected on this activity and how it made them feel.
