Jena Spady, an 8th grader at Garden County High School, hopes to collect hats, gloves, and mittens for the upcoming winter season. Her 8th grade Civics class has been working on community projects throughout the semester. You can donate hats, gloves, and mittens at the following locations: Nebraska State bank in Lisco, Bank of Lewellen, Oshkosh Superette, and Points West Community Bank in Lisco. A money donation jar is also available at each location. The drive will last until November 15th. Thank you for your donations and support!

Parents: Here is some information regarding a vaping device that is disguised to look like a USB Flash drive and comes in flavors including mint, mango, fruit medley and creme brulee. I'm sharing the following video and information to help you be more aware and informed. https://youtu.be/zawskRDd7uI
This week the Garden County 7th graders got their second Off-the-Page lesson. This archery lesson built off the atlatl lesson they first participated in the second week of school. In the archery living history lesson, students learned about the history of archery, its role in the development of society, how it impacted Stone Age people, and different types of bows. They also learned about the energy forces operating within a bow and how they transfer energy. More than that, students learned how archery is more effective than an atlatl by comparing it against their own experience. 
Special thanks to Alan Beberniss of the Garden County 4-H organization. He donated his time to the class and taught our kids about bows, shooting equipment, shooting technique, and range safety. Thanks Alan!
If any students are interested in joining 4-H shooting sports be sure to contact Alan or any other member of Garden County 4-H. 
Please note that this is now a live calendar and things will be added and edited periodically so please check back often. If you are a google calendar user you can add these events to your calendar.
On Friday, September 14th, all 8th graders were trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). According to the American Heart Association, "CPR, if administered immediately after cardiac arrest can double or triple a person's chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die." 8th Civics students are participating in activities throughout the year that encourages engagement with the community and to become more involved citizens.
