Michelle Lancaster, Bushland High School FCCLA Adviser, said this in her recent Challenge entry, “Thank you! I really appreciate all of your help with all of this. It has been difficult to get work from the kids from home, for various reasons.
Some are due to no internet. They are being creative and drawing on paper and sending me a picture from their phone. The quality is not that great but we are doing what we can from a safe distance!
They are still finding ways to do great things from home. They are cleaning their sibling’s rooms, getting groceries for elderly neighbors, doing random acts of kindness by doing drive by birthday parties for the students, putting sticky note notes of encouragement on mailboxes and doors.
What crazy times we are in! These kids have been great to work with.
They were disappointed that we did not get to finish two of our big projects they planned for, but they are resilient and have bounced back quickly. We have a classroom full of unmade/unfinished blankets for the homeless.
On the bright side, they will have a project to start the year!”
THANK YOU, Michelle! We appreciate your flexibility and the creativity and service-minded work from your students!!
We hear and understand the challenges and roadblocks to completing some of the original projects. We are awed by the entries coming in and responses to overcoming barriers and finding ways to apply the lessons through service.
This Friday, May 15th is the final deadline for this year.
We accept Lead4Change Challenge entries every day! If your students need more time to finish, we will celebrate their work as soon as the entry is received — and put it into next year’s first round of judging.
Students will purpose and focus are finding new ways to be leaders and serve others. They are the best kind of “frontline worker” for change!!
Thank you for finishing up an amazing year! Next week we will honor and celebrate 2020 seniors.
