Latino's in Action (LIA) is a leadership class where our Latino students can use their bilingualism to tutor kids at Barnett Elementary each day. Our students tutor kids in all grades, and help in all subjects, with the purpose of promoting literacy. The elementary students receive one on one tutoring from an LIA student. We currently have 28 students from the 8th and 9th grade that participate in the class. They are required to meet GPA requirements, be bilingual and show a positive attitude and exhibit leadership skills. Our students do a great job showing leadership and service in the community and in our school!

The 9th grade students in Teen Living will be caring for their flour sack babies this week. Students have this assignment for three days and are required to leave a voice message for Mrs. Thacker one night between 1 and 3 AM. The objective of this assignment is for students to discuss why teenagers are not ready for the demands and responsibilities associated with parenthood. The students do a great job decorating their flour sacks and have a lot of fun with this project, but definitely learn the objective of the assignment and are ready to be done when the time comes!

The National Junior Honor Society and Student Council members from Mt. Nebo went on a leadership field trip on November 12th. After a few training games and betting on some old records we went to the high course. There were zip lines, rock climbing, a giant swing, and "the jump of faith." Everybody got to participate in at least one high course. We learned that winning is not always important but helping your team succeed is what really matters. It really helped us to see that winning isn't everything!
