FLASH program starts at Winlock Elementary

Toledo FCCLA goes to nationals By Merrilee Bark Toledo's FCCLA recently traveled to Anaheim California for nationals. Skye Nyberg and Sydney McClure received gold medals for Live Event Planning. Emma Cline received silver for Chapter and Review. Carol Boyles received bronze in Digital Stories for Change FCCLA had a regional meeting in October, the students’ projects began in September. Competition for regionals took place in January, and state was in March. The top two projects in state go to nationals. Carol Boyles had an online event, and she was one of the top 15 that got to go. Boyles managed to work on

a senior-level project in her freshman year in order to achieve this. Calvin Wallace and Katie Bowen both attended Leadership Academy, and are co-presidents of the Toledo FCCLA chapter this year. With only a few national consultants in the nation, Rene Ketchum, FCCLA advisor, was chosen to be one of them. "It was an honor to be picked, but it's going to be a lot of work," Ketchum commented. The Region Meeting at Toledo First Baptist Church is on October 24. Emma Cline will be presiding over that meeting, as she is state Vice President of Region 2. The Nation's theme for

FCCLA this year is: Your Story, Our Story. This year's Toledo FCCLA theme is going to be: I Am, You Are, We Are, Hooked on FCCLA. They combined the national theme with the Lewis County area because the theme has to do with the Cowlitz River Hooked being a reference to fishing. Toledo plans on getting t-shirts in black, with a triangle pictured with a fishing hook in the middle. Part of the fun in Anaheim was a 5k Twilight Fun Run, in which Katie, Calvin, and Mrs. Ketchum participated in. The money went toward a certain charity, which changes every year. Ketchum commented that it was a lot of fun.

Winlock Elementary School is starting a new program called FLASH. The recent scores for math show our school is below the state standard. Winlock Miller Elementary is determined to get the scores up and they need the community’s help to do so. “The school is starting the FLASH Card Math volunteer program with an orientation for volunteers on Monday, October 7 at 2:00 p.m.,” said Meg Matheson. “This is the day that volunteers will learn about expectations of the program, tips for working with students, and have an opportunity to meet the students and teachers with whom they will be working. The program will start with our fourth grade classrooms. Each volunteer will have 5 students that they will work with once a week. Multiplication flash cards will be the basis of the learning, with students memorizing facts that will help them with mathematical problem solving. Having the facts memorized will give students the skills to apply this knowledge, when needed, in algebra, geometry and calculus.” Matheson continued, “Carol Schultz had the inspiration to create this oppor-

tunity for our students. She has collected donated flash cards, recruited volunteers from the community through the senior center, TOPS program and other community groups. If anyone is interested in volunteering for this program, an application for volunteering can be obtained from the elementary school office. The elementary staff is excited to have another way to support learning for our students.” “Winlock Miller Elementary staff are excited to have community members coming in to volunteer their time to support our students,” said Matheson. “The FLASH program is just getting started and we need more volunteers. The school is always looking for volunteers and welcomes them on to campus. If you have the time, one hour a week, to give to our students success, please pick up a volunteer application from the elementary school office.” Carol Schultz stated, “The world of kids today is much different than the one we grew up in or even our own children. Technology has changed everything. Instead of reading a book, kids play a computer game. Instead of riding a bike, See flash Page 5

they play a computer game. The variety we once had that went into our learning is now replaced with playing a computer game. Cell phones make them available to even the youngest of children. The impact of this is beginning to show up in the academics and social development. FLASH is a program to bridge the gap and reinforce the math skills learned by the kids in our town. Kids now face competition not only locally but internationally to get the jobs they will need to become independent and

successful in living.” “Winlock has always come together to recognize our kids in their sports achievements and the time is now to actively cheer them on in their academic success,” continued Schultz. It truly takes a village to raise a student these days. Let’s come together and help our students raise their math scores and improve their lives. Hope to see you on October 2 at 2:00 p.m. at Winlock Miller Elementary.

Napavine high school holds Spirit Week

By Melanie Langley This week at Napavine High School we are celebrating our homecoming week with all sorts of class competitions and school spirit! On the Sunday before our spirit week began each class met up from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. to decorate a hallway. This is our first competition of the week. Each class decorated their assigned hallway in a Disney Photo by Melanie Langley movie theme. Seniors picked The Little Mermaid and made The seniors' entrance to their decorated hallway.

their hallway into a beautiful under the sea view with characters from the movie at every other step. Juniors decorated to Monsters Inc. with the main focus being on doors. The sophomores hung up their handmade posters of Lilo and Stitch characters in their hallway and the freshman created a jungle scene to represent The Jungle Book. On Monday, our first dress-up theme of the week was ‘Merica Monday. Students dressed up in red, white and blue and sported their most patriotic clothes. On Tuesday students and teachers alike dressed in their best tacky tourist outfits. The day was full of tropical shirts, fanny packs, and socks with sandals.

Wednesday was the classic Color Wars. All classes were assigned a color to wear, seniors were blue, juniors were red, sophomores were green, and freshmen were yellow. Along with Color Wars, we usually hold the annual Tiger Games at the football field the same night. This year, unfortunately, the Tiger Games were canceled due to field and weather conditions. Hopefully next year we’ll be able to hold them though! Thursday was sports themed. Students put on their favorite jerseys for sports they played or they wore merchandise from their favorite professional and college teams. There have been some changes to our usual homecoming festivities. As men-

tioned before, every class decorated a hallway. This is a new tradition we’re starting called Hallway Wars and will be taking the place of the usual class floats in the homecoming parade. Speaking of the parade, there actually won’t be a parade this year. Instead, the people who usually take part in the parade will walk through the elementary school. Despite these changes, our school will be just as spirited as we have been in the past, that part won’t change. Friday is Spirit Day where students will go all out in orange and black to show support and spirit for our school. It is also the same day the homecoming football game will take place.
