Around the Halls

The Tuscola Class of 2020 is currently fundraising for Prom in April with mini-baked cookies and fan flags – MLB, NFL, and NCAA. You can also order online and find a bigger selection of items that can be shipped right to you. Make sure to find a TCHS Junior to buy something before Tuesday, Jan. 29!
On Tuesday, Jan. 15 the Tuscola FCCLA Officers planned FCCLA Week, which is quickly approaching in February. The next day, the whole Chapter had their monthly meeting and signed up for the exciting upcoming events!
Wednesday the 16th Tuscola FFA Officers met to plan National FFA Week, also in February. This year officers are planning to add even more to the week-long celebration. There’s still one more week left to purchase strawberries; to place an order call 253-2377 ext. 134. Four FFA members will be competing in the public speaking career development event on Jan. 23, and two will participate in the job interview contest. Feb. 4, Tuscola FFA Officers will travel to Decatur to meet with the National FFA Officers who are scheduled to be in Illinois part of the national tour.
On Wednesday, Jan. 16 Kiwanis had a Game Night with the TCHS Key Club members who enjoyed Monical’s Pizza and a Desert Survival Scenario. They had three teams: four or five Kiwanians and three Key Club members in each. Their plane crashed – do not worry, everyone (but the pilot and co-pilot) survived, and each individual member had to rank 15 items from most important to least. Then, the team discussed their rankings and agreed on what they deemed appropriate. Finally, the expert rankings were then given, and the team with the least amount of points won, which just happened to be “The Winners.” But everyone really left a winner that night!
Key Club members worked concessions for the boys’ basketball game against Warrensburg on Friday, Jan. 18.
Thursday, Jan. 17, cheer, dance, boys’ and girls’ basketball, scholastic bowl, FFA, SADD, and Student Council took pictures.
