Ms. Ann Pettis, 4-H Education Program Specialist, brought a team of awesome Senior 4-Hers to the CIS/FC February Parent Meeting on February 28, 2013. These 4-H students presented to parents and students on a variety of topics which included proper care of cattle, healthy eating (especially at fast food restaurants!), and dairy sciences. All presenters were extremely knowledgeable in his or her field. In fact, several students have won several local and state awards for their expertise, presentations and portfolios!
Parents were encouraged to enroll their student(s) in 4-H activities, clubs and summer camp. For more information about 4-H and how your child can get involved, please contact the Bleckley County Extension Office at (478) 934-3220.
To celebrate the holiday season, Santa made a special appearance at the CIS/FC December parent meeting! Parents and students sang Jingle Bells as Santa made his grand entrance on December 18, 2012. Santa chuckled and waved as students eagerly lined up to tell him their wish lists. Santa gave each child homemade cookies as a token of the Christmas spirit.
Students and parents also participated in Christmas trivia. The family with the most correct trivia answers won a prize. Congratulations to Brendan and Brandon Hudson on their very merry win!
Families celebrated Thanksgiving with a traditional Thanksgiving meal provided by the 21st CCLC and Bleckley County School Nutrition department. Representatives from the Bleckley County Fire Department presented on fire safety during the holidays.
