Students Raise Money for Habitat for Humanity

Fort Calhoun Students Lizzie Namuth, Ashlyn Dippel, Kloey Appel, and Anna Polesky raised money for Habitat for Humanity by giving students the chance to vote on which teachers were taped to the wall. Mr. Jones was the top vote-getter with Mr. Hatcher in second. Students also had the opportunity to pay a dollar for a piece of tape. Lizzie said “One of the funniest parts was watching Mrs. Wellman High Horse and Mr. Hatcher have a competition to see who would get taped. I also enjoyed seeing a lot of the junior high kids getting involved and donating a lot of money. I thought it was a fun and competitive way to help raise money for a good cause.” In all, $254.85 was raised.

Dance Camp Fun

Students at Fort Calhoun Elementary had a ton of fun at Dance Camp on Friday, December 15th. Forty girls attended this event organized by the High School Dance Team. This year, they had a Holiday theme and danced at halftime of the Girls’ Varsity Game against Wahoo. Kindergartener Lani said, “it was pretty fun and exciting but it wore me out.” Anna and Jordin agreed that their favorite part was the performance where they danced to songs like Jingle Bell Rock.

Students Visit Autumn Pointe

“Devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”

One of our freshman homeroom classes has been writing to and visiting a group of Seniors at Autumn Pointe.  The students and seniors share stories of family activities, sports and hobbies and life experiences.  The ‘pen pals’ write to each other monthly and we visit the retirement home during their homeroom once per month.
