“Don't Play TAG With Germs….You May Be IT!”
As the holidays are arriving, three teams of Fulda High School junior high school FCCLA members are working on their service learning projects.

“Don't Play TAG With Germs….You May Be IT!” The team of McKenzie Evers and Evan Luna have completed their Germs and Hand washing Project in which they shared information with Fulda Elementary School students in grades 1 through 6 about the importance of thorough hand washing. “We went to the gymnasium at Fulda Elementary School and talked with the students during their physical education time period,” Luna explained. “It is important that everyone understands about germs and that the best way to avoid illness is through practicing good hand washing techniques.”

“We wanted an interactive time with the students, so with some of the grades we played tag,” Evers stated. “They had cards in their pockets that we had made that identified them as a germ, or said 'I stayed home because I was sick'. When the game was over we identified the germs that had been tagged by the students.”

Luna and Evers also did an experiment using a white teddy bear and a black light. The teddy bear was passed from person to person. Under the black light, it revealed more and more germ collection. The girls also gave the Fulda Elementary and High Staff a quiz about handwashing. The adults average of 63% showed that they also need to be updated on handwashing and transference of germs. Germs cannot be seen so everyone needs to remember the correct method to wash one's hands. First, wet the hands, apply antibacterial soap, wash for 20 seconds, rinse and dry with paper towel. Slides on the large hall monitor in the high school and on the local cable TV help keep others informed. Remember, you too can fight the flu with good handwashing!

“Annual FCCLA Cookie Walk”--London Swan and Emma Wehking are the organizers of this year's Cookie Walk Fundraiser. They are encouraging residents of the area to put some fun into this fundraiser by attending the Cookie Walk that will be held on Tuesday, December 3rd, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Fulda High School. “Containers will be sold that afternoon. Those who buy them can then walk through and choose the cookies that they want to put into the container,” Swan explained.

“We have posters in the school and in businesses around town advertising the Cookie Walk Fundraiser,” Wehking said. “We want people to know that we will be donating the money to worthwhile causes here in the community.”



“Santa Is Stuck In The Chimney!”--Aleix White, Payton Marquardt and Payton Slaathaug are the organizers for this year's Toys for Tots. This team, too, has posters throughout the businesses in Fulda as well as in the Fulda High School. The posters state “Stuck in the Chimney” - Help us get money and new toys! “Santa is Stuck in the Chimney”, and we need your help getting him out!

“People can make a monetary donation or give a new toy,” White explained. “All donations will go to the Murray County Christmas Project.” “There will be collection boxes or donation container boxes at Antonio's, Maynards, and in Fulda High School Room 301,” Marquardt added.

“With the money, we will buy new toys to be given to boys and girls who need a toy for Christmas,” Slaathaug said. “Our project needs to be completed by Friday, December 6th.”

“We know that there will be many donations, because the people of Fulda are just like that,” White stated. These three students want to make sure all of the children in our area have a gift for Christmas!”
