Last week was FBLA Week at Inter-Lakes High School and students were celebrated and honored by the community by doing some fun activities.

It all started on Sunday with our FBLA Vice President Ellie Hornkohl sharing her FBLA story.

Monday saw the beginning of our healthy habits bingo. All ILMHS members were invited to take up the coverall challenge and complete healthy activities in exercise, mindfulness, education and healthy eating.

They mindfully ate a piece of dark chocolate and bingo activity was an overall favorite, of course. But many other activities are really catching on.

“Chair Yoga is a D block favorite – they have done it three times this week,” said Mrs. Sweeney, FBLA Adviser, “but my C block is enjoying the five minute guided meditation and my B block is getting into the exercise: Walking, Hopscotch etc. My favorite is doing The Hustle. It was a lot of fun and brought back memories.”

One teacher told me she turned around and went back home to complete the “make your bed before school” activity.

Tuesday was postponed because of snow, but in a way “Teacher Appreciation Day” worked out as teachers were able to enjoy a traditional snow day with their families.

On “Reading Wednesday,” students spent time recording children’s books to share with the younger grades and reading to their younger siblings.

Thursday was Community Service day and students made “no sew” blankets. FBLA donated 20 blankets to The Belknap House and The Carey House shelters in January and we are working to be able to donate an equal amount to the Humane Society by the end of this week. FBLA is also holding a pet supplies drive all week.

Friday was Spirit Day and all wore FBLA gear or blue to be able celebrate all the fun and community togetherness. The week lifted the Laker Spirits, built community cohesiveness and sent students off for break with a feelings of love and belonging.

Future Business Leaders is a student business organization with more than 230,000 members and advisers in 12,000 middle schools, high schools, and colleges worldwide. FBLA-PBL’s mission is to inspire and prepare students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences.
