Our fall fundraiser event was a success. Even though it had to be postponed from its original date in September, the turn out was impressive! Students were to collect sponsorship from others to participate. Students who received sponsors of $30 or more participated in the 5K run. Any one who collected $100 or more able to attend the Eagle Warrior Competition field day, and those students who raised $300 or more also attended a day at the the trampoline park.
It was a beautiful day for a run! Prizes were given for the participants who actually wanted to be timed and ran! The rest of us walked and enjoyed the scenery...
Each year our school coordinates two major fundraisers to offset expenses. The major push for fundraising this year is to raise the remaining funds needed to begin the building process for our new facility.
Students who raised $100 or more in sponsorship were able to take a whole day off of school for some fun. Students in 1st - 6th competed against classmates in soccer, kickball, beach volleyball, dodge-ball, relay races - and enjoyed some free-play time on the playground. Students in 7th - 12th grades competed for points in flag football, cabbage ball, UFO, beach volleyball, and a preliminary Ninja Warrior Course. Part of the Ninja Warrior Course included an 8'ft wall to climb over, a rope bridge to cross and many other obstacles to cross.
All students received grilled burgers for lunch and received a free snowball from Kona Ice.
The day ended with all students gathered around to watch the final Ninja Warrior Competition. The top competitors from all six high school teams were chosen for this final round. Congratulations to Jackson Marble and Maddie Scharfenstein, both 9th graders, for achieving the fastest times! It was a good day!
Our school has a different way to celebrate the end of the first nine weeks! After a morning of testing, students and teachers alike have a fun time in the gym. Our traditional Black & Blue Volleyball game is anything but traditional! Teachers and staff play a fun game against all of our volleyball players, high school and middle school. Lots of laughter, cheers, music and, of course, concessions! Congratulations to all of our students for a wonderful 1st quarter! #fbcsslidell#fbcsblackandbluevolleyball
Our 7th & 8th graders had a fun Game Night! What a turn out! They enjoyed laser tag, a video bus, night basketball, Just Dance, ping pong, cards, and creatively made up their own games! And don't forget the food - including Cane's chicken!! We are blessed with awesome students! #fbcsslidell #fbcsjuniorhigh #fbcsgamenight
Passionate about the Lord, our students and our school!
