FLVS Corkboard: October Highlights
October is full of outstanding events, and there are many spectacular (and some spooktacular) ones you can be a part of with FLVS. First, October is National Bullying Prevention month which unites communities around the world to educate and raise awareness of bullying prevention. Standing up against bullying is something FLVS takes very seriously. Join FLVS and the FLVS Full Time Middle School and wear orange on Wednesday, Oct. 25, to show unity against bullying.
Here are other notable activities happening this month.
Red Ribbon Week, taking place this week Oct. 23-27, is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually. FLVS Full Time high school students are invited to dress up every day and participate in a Red Ribbon Week contest.
Learn more in this video from the Mega News Network student news show.
Ever wonder where the holiday Halloween came from? Attend the FLVS Full Time Yearbook-sponsored event on Tuesday, Oct. 31, from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Find out about the origins of Halloween, as well as a costume contest for a fun safe Halloween.
Just around the corner in November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). All FLVS students are welcome to participate in this fun-filled writing challenge. The challenge runs from Nov. 1-30 and you can write about whatever you want! The key is to write every day and at the end of the month you have completed an entire novel in just 30 days! Visit the FLVS Creative Writing Club blog and learn about elements of novel writing.
If you are interested in participating in the NaNoWriMo Challenge, email Mrs. Katie Emery, Creative Writing Club sponsor, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, Oct. 31.
