CHS Book Fair Success
Thank you everyone who helped make the Book Fair a success. As of Friday afternoon I am at $1,862.17 in total sales! I will be open today, Monday, for a little while before I begin packing everything back up so if you didn't get in last week you can still make a last minute purchase! If you asked me to hold something for you, it is still waiting so please come by and complete your purchase. If we have enough in sales today to hit $2,000 total, then our percentage increases to 50% plus a $100 bonus! That would give us $1100 to spend on materials for the library!

Thanks, Lynn Gowler (12/3/2012)

FFA Leadership Conference At Roland

Front row: State FFA Officers: Kyle Hilbert- Northeast District Vice President; Kaylen Baker-State FFA Reporter; Annie Jo Gilbert-Central District Vice President; Brandon Baumgarten- State FFA President
Back row: Dustin Burch, Michaela Branen, Mckinna Cecil, Dakota Fugate, Leigh Brown
Dustin Burch, Michaela Branen, Dakota Fugate, Leigh Brown, and Mckinna Cecil of Collinsville FFA attended the Roland Leadership Conference on November 27th. Our members learned about leadership through workshops, and speeches from our state FFA representatives. State FFA President Brandon Baumgarten held a workshop on peer pressure. This workshop focused on how there is a good and a bad peer pressure. Good peer pressure is joking with your friends and bad peer pressure is making someone feel insecure. Central Vice- President Annie Jo Gilbert held a workshop on ‘what is leadership’. Leadership comes in many different forms; you could be a politician or you could be a big brother/ sister. It just depends on what type of leader you are and how you use the power of being a leader to influence other people. Kaylen Baker the state FFA reporter hosted a workshop called ‘what are speeches?’ In this workshop she helped give tips on how to write, prepare and memorize your speech. Kyle Hilbert the Northeast district Vice President did his workshop on ‘decision making.’ He said that indecision is always the worst decision. I think that these leadership conferences are great because they truly do help us connect with other people and grow within ourselves so that we can become great leaders.

Health News Highlights:
I've been trying to spread the word because I want everyone to know that Reasor's has a free antibiotic program (for adults and kids.) It has nothing to do with insurance (they don't even ask if you have it) and you don't have to qualify in any way. They have made the most common antibiotics available at no charge. They also have free prenatal vitamins and children's vitamins. All you have to have is a prescription. Even if you have small copay, free is better!!
