FBLA American Enterprise Project

During the month of November, twenty-four members of Fairbury FBLA conducted their annual American Enterprise project. This year, three classes of Fairbury Elementary fourth-graders were taught the meaning of American Enterprise, the importance of spending locally and the multiplier effect which happens when money is spent within the community. Third graders were able to set up a cookie baking business, bake cookies at the high school, and market their cookies to the high school and junior high students. With over $400 in revenue collected over three days, this year’s cookie sales were a big success!  After paying all expenses, the remaining profit will be split between the three fourth-grade classes.  Each individual class will decide how to spend  their business profits.  The annual American Enterprise project is enjoyed by all students. FBLA members enjoy working with the younger kids, and the fourth-graders love making a trip to the high school. “Overall, I thought this project was pretty fun,” FBLA President, Zane Grizzle said. “We (FBLA members) got a lot out of this project and were able to help fourth graders understand what goes into making a business and understand the American Enterprise System.

Blood Drive Sponsored by the Fairbury National Honor Society

~by Gavin Shramm

We had a lot of donors and even some double donations! The McCown twins Ashton and Ethan gave double which is taking the blood out of the body, taking the red cells, and giving back the fluids, plasma, and platelets. “I never did it before and said sure, might as well try it,” Ashton McCown said. Along with the twins was Ericka Kroeker and Drake Richtarik who also gave double. Thank you to everyone who donated blood today and thank you Nebraska Community Blood Bank for working all day and collecting the blood.

Connie Schouboe Receives the Jeffs’ Best Award!

The Jeffs’ Best Award was created by the Fairbury Public Schools Board of Education to highlight and celebrate the great work of our staff.On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to congratulate Connie Schouboe, Fairbury High School Art Teacher, as the recipient of the October Jeffs’ Best Award!

Here’s a comment from her nomination:
Connie has been a teacher at the high school for many years and has experienced so many things within the district. This is what makes her such a valuable part of the high school and the Fairbury School District. Connie is definitely the person that everyone goes to for advice about classroom management issue, problems they are encountering with students, or problems they are encountering with life. Connie is truly a selfless leader who cares about the entire school and will give up her time to listen to anyone in need. Connie always has a passion to help her students and has truly been a rock for me to lean on in my 7 years of teaching at Fairbury. She helped me so much my first couple of years and I always know that I can go to her with questions or for advice about so many things going on in my life. I highly recommend Connie Schouboe for the Jeffs Best Award!
