Bulldog Fans cheer loudly for the 10/11 camera!
During the month of February, 5th graders were able to participate in an afterschool program, WIN which promoted healthy eating and exercise. During each of the three sessions, 11 students prepared a healthy snack, learned about healthy food choices and enjoyed physical activity. Students prepared Banana in a Blanket, Breakfast in a Cone and Fruit Salsa during their sessions. Funding for the project was received from the Friend School Foundation. Helping with the event were FCCLA members and FCS teacher, Mrs. Houlden
The Secondary SCIP team has initiated a new reporting or communication tool for the Friend students. A bright Bulldog red, locked Comment Box is now on the wall in the school nurse’s outer office area. Students are encouraged to write personal concerns or questions on a slip of paper and deposit it in this box anytime of the day. If the paper is signed, the SCIP team will initiate a contact with that person if necessary. SCIP cares about our students and wants to be sure that every student has a voice that is heard.
SCIP thanks Mr. Hitchcock and senior Philip Lutz for designing, building, and hanging the box for use by all our 7-12 students. Students are encouraged to contact a SCIP team member for a meeting if need be. SCIP team members are Lisa Ricenbaw, Mary Niemeier, Michelle Schiffern, and Pat Rohrig and these faculty members have all been trained at the week-long Nebraska SCIP summer sessions.

United Methodist Church Fire Fund
The Kindergarten class made a profit of $500,00 for the UMC Fire Fund by selling candy canes before school and after lunch. This is quite an accomplishment for 5 and 6 year old children to make a BIG DIFFERENCE in their community. It was a great lesson of compassion and caring for other individuals. A wonderful service project for our class. I am so proud of their efforts!!!! Mrs. Dickinson, Elementary Teacher
