Halloween Student Activity Day

On October 31st, 2018 all Flinthills Middle and High School students participated in the second Student Activity Day for the 2018-2019 school year.  The day started with Mrs. Onek addressing the students in regards to the many celebrations that we have experienced in the first quarter of the year.  Morgan Holcomb and Kadyn Nuncio followed with a presentation over the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  The 7 habits include Being Proactive, Begin with the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek to Understand then be Understood, Synergize and Sharpen the Saw.  Morgan and Kadyn were nominated by their teachers to attend this year’s Greenbush Student Leadership Academy.  Morgan and Kadyn brought back the information they learned in their first meeting on October 12th

Before lunch, Mr. Boldra presented ALICE to the students, which is our district’s Emergency Operation Plan in the event of a school shooter.  Alice stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate.  Students even broke out into their first hour classes and practiced barricading doors and discussing evacuation plans with their first hour teachers. 

After lunch Amie Beggs from Greenbush presented on the Color Code Personality Profile.  Mr. Casteel is attending the Greenbush Leadership Academy this year with other teachers and school leaders from across the state and had the opportunity to take part in a Color Code training on October 12th.  He felt this would be a wonderful learning opportunity for our school district.  On Tuesday October 30th every 6-12 grade student and teacher took the Color Code Personality Profile Test and learned what the driving factors behind their personalities are.  Red – Power, Blue – Intimacy, White – Peace and Yellow – Fun.  With this knowledge, students can better understand how to better communicate and develop healthy relationships with one another.  Teachers and coaches can also use this information to better connect with their students and athletes.

Before the day ended Amie and Mr. Casteel facilitated some fun team-building activities, all 6-12th grade students and staff lined the hallways to cheer on the Intermediate students as they marched in their annual Halloween parade through the school.  Many of the middle and high school students also participated in Halloween and were allowed to dress up in the afternoon.  Please enjoy a slideshow of the day’s activities.
