Willing volunteers make "fun-draisers" great, and we are still looking for additional help in order to make this a memorable event. See below for details.

7th Grade Courage Retreat
The 7th Grade Courage Retreat was Wednesday, February 7, 2018. The Minnesota based Youth Frontiers once again brought their dynamic retreat to Webster for a full day focused on "courage", education, and character.
We believe that in order for students to do well in school they need to be comfortable with who they are and feel physically and emotionally safe. In this effort to create a safe and caring culture, we brought in Youth Frontiers for the fifth year in a row to facilitate a Courage Retreat.
During the Courage Retreat, 7th graders focused on creating a more positive school community in a variety of activities that build empathy skills and teach safe ways to help prevent bullying.
The Retreat took place in the gym beginning at 9:20 when the 7th graders were welcomed by the Youth Frontiers facilitators and the small group leaders from the Student Athlete Leadership group from CHS. The remainder of the day was filled with small and large group activities. All students and facilitators ate their brown bag lunches together, too. The end of the day culminated in each student writing out their act of courage and having the opportunity to share that with the whole group.
Follow up activities are planned in 7th grade classrooms to keep the positive momentum continuing. For more information please visit www.youthfrontiers.org
8th Grade Career Day
What high school classes would prepare you to do this job? Is a college degree required for this career? If so, what kind? If not, what kind of training is required? Which career cluster is this career in? What is one life skill that comes in handy for this job? These are just some of the questions 8th graders explored on Career Day, Tuesday, February 12, 2018.
This day started off with our 8th graders dressed up for the occasion and worked in groups designing a centerpiece from one of the 16 Career Clusters for their lunch table. Students then had a "business lunch" in which they participated in a game which Mrs Bolander, Mrs. Pelikan and Mrs. Chaffee coordinated. Once lunch was finished, it was off to their classroom to take part in a team activity, get their selections for the four speakers they would visit throughout the afternoon, as well as receive their "Passport", a method for recording information from each speaker they attended.
This was a great day filled with exploring careers from individuals in the field. We couldn't have done it without all of the help from PTO parents, our Career Day Coordinator Mrs. Mose, our teachers, Junior Achievement, and community members. Please consider volunteering for Career Day 2019. It's an exciting, educational day for our 8th grader students.
