Last week, 51 members of the NJHS and 8 staff headed off to Camp Potawotami in South Milford for a two day leadership retreat called LEAD NOW, LEAD WELL. Goals of the retreat were to:
- Motivate, inspire, and challenge.
- Cultivate a culture of leadership.
- Introduce students to four basic leadership attitudes:
- A good leader is willing to serve.
- A good leader is confident.
- A good leader stays positive.
- A good leader honors people.
- Team buiding and fun!
The leadership attitudes were covered by guest speakers who are all former West Noble graduates: MarkSchermerhorn, Elias Rojas, Granville Roberts, and Alison (Kreager) Mead.
The students were also led in many fun activities including wall climbing, low ropes challenge course, canoeing, hayrides, campfire, skits, the mole hole slide, ga-ga- ball, and many other games and icebreakers with Camp Potawotami staff.
All staff, students, and guests had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful weather and gorgeous scenery of Blackman Lake and Camp Potawotami.
Middle and high school students start to gather for their Walk to School day. National Walk to School Day is a way to provide opportunities for students to be physical active while raising awareness on the significance of Safe Routes to School.
The Noble County Community Foundation, Inc. and its supporting organization, Community Initiatives, Inc. recently awarded a grant to West Noble Middle School for $4,000 to assist with the cost of a school wide cultural study of various countries. This would involve the music, art and cafeteria staff to continue the monthly themes based on different culture backgrounds. Including decorations and provide nutritious and educational food choices from different cultural backgrounds.
