FCCLA Members Teaching Healthy Choices

Tri-Central FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) members, Lea L. and Kaylee H., both sophomores, collaborated with the Tri-Central Elementary 3rd grade classes.  They have done a total of four cooking demonstrations, letting the students taste and learn how to make recipes.  They made vegetable pizza and fruit & yogurt cups.  Lea and Kaylee have also been into the 3rd grade gym classes, planning and participating in interactive exercises.  These fun exercises included such activities as freeze dancing and an obstacle course.  The FCCLA members created cookbooks for the 3rd graders to take home so they can continue with healthy recipes.  Lea and Kaylee wanted to enforce to the 3rd graders that by starting small with eating smart and exercising is what really makes a difference.

Help Tri-Central Community Schools Compete for a Grant of up to $25,000!

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives rural public school districts the opportunity to compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to help fund science and math programs. Eligible farmers can nominate local public school districts for a grant. Please ask all of the local farmers you know to nominate our school today!

For the fourth consecutive year, America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education will award $2.3 million to enhance math and science education in rural communities in 2015. Grant applications will be judged based on the merit of the application, need and community support. Community support is affected by the number of farmers we have nominate our school district and this can strengthen our application.

If Tri-Central wins, we plan on using our grant money to enhance our Science programs with better technology. But first, we have to be nominated. The deadline for farmer nominations is April 1, 2015. So start spreading the word about this important opportunity today!

For additional information about the program, visit GrowRuralEducation.com.
