Food For Needy Families
The Lake Fenton Builders Club and Key Club members worked with advisors, Mrs. Graham, Ms. Rainwater, Ms. Speckman and Mrs. Conover to pick up and disperse food to over 70 families in the area. Together, with the help of the Fenton Kiwanis, all of these families received turkey, peanut butter, jelly, bread, eggs, milk, potato and cereal. Funding was provided by Fenton Kiwanis.
The Middle School and High School students and adults visited a local grocery store to pick up all of the items above. They loaded a bus with the food and then distributed items to the four Lake Fenton buildings. Each building then contacted families for pick up of these items.
Thank you Key Club and Builders Club members!
STARFISH Group for Anti-Bullying Awareness
Students at the high school meet with leader, Mrs. Sheila Smith, to discuss ways to prevent bullying.
One project they coordinated was the first annual STARFISH walk. The outdoor walk took place from Fenton AGS School to Bush Park. There were 155 people and four dogs in attendance. This special walk was featured in local newspapers, as well. We are so proud of our students!
Operation Warm and Fuzzy
The LF High School students raised $715.81 to buy new coats for 25 students at Scott School. Most students received a hat and pair of gloves too. $28 per coat was spent on each coat and three coats were donated. Several students shopped during "tutorial hour" and Mrs. Andrada and Mrs. Rusaw shopped as well. Coats were delivered to Scott School of the Flint Community School District.
Thank you to all the staff and students at Lake Fenton High School for helping make the world a brighter place for children!
DID YOU KNOW?
Below are some highlights about Character Education from the four buildings within Lake Fenton Community Schools.
Did you know...?
1- West Shore Elementary kids use buzzing bees to help them remember their character quality traits. "Bee Responsible", "Bee Safe", and "Bee Respectful."
2- Torrey Hill students say a chant out loud everday to help them remember their character traits. The chant is, "T.H.I.S. is the place where I am my best!" T.H.I.S. stands for Tolerance, Honesty, Independence, and Safety.
3- Middle School students are recognized with a monthly breakfast when they are selected by staff for having good character.
4- High School students hear a character education "Word of the Week" announced over the P.A. every week.
A Strategic Planning Focus Group wrote this plan to address the needs of Character Education within our district. It is the guiding document for planning Character Education initiatives.
