FBLA Pink Out

The Fairbury vs. Wilber-Clatonia softball game on Monday, October 5 and football game on Friday, October 9 are the dates for FBLA’s fifth annual Pink Out. The two FBLA chapters are teaming up for a Pink Out week to promote awareness and raise funds for the American Cancer Society. The support of numerous business sponsors will help to defray the cost of the shirts, allowing greater profits for donation. T-shirts should be pre-ordered by September 16. Order forms are available in the high school office or on the school website. Orders can also be placed during lunch through September 16. Shirts are $10 each, and are available in youth and adult sizes. Forms and money should be returned to Melissa Dux at the high school by September 16.

Scavenger Hunt for Vocabulary


Geometry students participated in a scavenger hunt for vocabulary words.  With a partner and a list of 34 words, students recalled the definition and hunted for an example.  The Fairbury Athletic Complex and Track provided numerous opportunities for points, lines and planes as well as parallel or perpendicular lines and all sizes of angles.  It took a little more time to find specific triangles.  According to Delainey, “The hardest vocabulary word to find today was an equiangular triangle.”
Students completed the outdoor adventure with a moment of community service – picking up trash around the stadium.

Flip For Fun Friday

Students in the General Math 8 class strengthen fundamental math skills by playing Flip 4.  This board game allows 15 minutes of fun on Fridays.  Students who have all assignments completed and corrections submitted get to play as individuals, partners or teams.  Rolling a pair of dice provides math students numbers to consider.  Their chosen strategy to add, subtract, multiply or divide leads to four in a row for a win!  Inspired by games like Tic-Tac-Toe or Connect 4, Flip 4 makes learning math fun.
