Black River Falls Middle School FCCLA members Olivia Hefty and Sunny Rufsholm recently presented their FCCLA STAR project to the Jackson County Humane Society. Olivia and Sunny collected approximately $600.00 in donations from local businesses and individuals for the purchase of cat trees for the animal shelter. We are proud of these two students and their eagerness to help our community.
Our mission statement at BRFMS is: “We will connect and believe, so kids engage and succeed.” Click on the link provided to view a short video highlighting some of the ways we connect with our students outside the regular classroom setting.
The middle school has instituted a new behavior program this year called “The Tiger Way.” This program recognizes positive behaviors and choices not only in the classroom, but in all school settings. When students show respectful, responsible, and safe behaviors they are recognized by earning “Tiger Tickets.” These tickets can be exchanged for many incentives and extra activities.
One such activity took place in late December. Three local law enforcement officers volunteered to take a “pie” in the face: Sergeant Hackman, Officer Fredrick, Officer James. In order to have the chance to “Pie” a police officer in the face, students had to turn Tiger Tickets and have their name drawn.
One student per grade level was chosen. The winners were…Grade 6-Brianna I. , Grade 7-Hozhoni W., Grade 8-Stephen R.
Officer Fredrick was also “pied” in the face by his niece and nephew, Nick and Kora U.
Last, but not least, if law enforcement was going to take it in the face…so was the middle school principal, Mr. Roou. All staff members put their names in a bucket to do that. Ms. Nikki’s was the lucky staff member!
We thank the law enforcement officials and Mr. Roou for being such good sports!
