The Booster Club will have a big meeting April 13 at 6:00 to
elect officers and discuss new ideas. Let's work to figure out how
to increase membership and support. We need officers/committees
that serve the elementary, junior high and high school. If your
child is in athletics, cheers, dances, or will in the future, this
is the time to step up and volunteer. The Booster Club handles
fundraisers, concession schedules, officials' pay, clean up after
games, money for gate and concession, banquets, and much more. It
is a massive undertaking that requires a lot of help. We need you
to consider stepping up to leadership roles. False River needs

As culminating activities for two recent units, the
5th and 6th graders had fun applying what they learned about
geometry and measurement. In one activity, students used Hershey's
Kisses to estimate and calculate the area of the wrapper as well as
the height and circumference of the bottom of the Kiss. In another
activity, 6th grade students celebrated Pi Day by creating their
own "Circle Art" posters.

On March 16, the high school geometry classes
celebrated Pi Day. The classes enjoyed different activities
involving pi. The students discovered pi by finding the ratio of
the circumference and diameter of various objects around the
classroom. Two contests were held; one was to find Pi symbols
hidden around the room. And the other contest was to memorize as
many digits of Pi as possible. Rachael Rucker and Jake Bayham were
the winners and won mini pies. The classes enjoyed doughnuts at the
end of the celebration.

The FRA high school engineering class
assisted the elementary art enrichment class in the construction of
a lucky leprechaun trap. Bringing these two classes together
provided an opportunity for the high school students to research
and construct simple machines and then teach the younger students
how to build a trap out of Popsicle sticks. The first and second
grade art students learned about the myth of the Leprechaun and his
love of rainbows and Lucky Charms. The children discovered that if
they set a trap with Lucky Charms and captured a Leprechaun that he
might leave a gold coin or chocolate as payment to get out of the
trap. The engineering class, taught by Ms....

Beta Club week. In honor of the week, the club held a daily trivia
contest. Students were asked one question each day; winners were
Blake Fulmer, winning twice, Mikey Rayburn, Gabe Rice and Mandy
Stoute. To end the celebration, members from both clubs were
allowed to wear their Beta Club t-shirts. The members of these
clubs are required to maintain a certain GPA and meet service hour
requirements. These students work extremely hard to accomplish
this, and the FRA family is very proud of all of them. Congrats to
the trivia winners!

The Law class at False River had a mock trial on
its campus. Judge Best allowed us to use his robe and our lawyers
wore conservative attire. They put into play all the criminal
vocabulary terms they have been learning as well as the trial
process. The lawyers, witnesses, judges, jury and bailiffs all did
a wonderful job. The Law class will have another mock trial at the
beginning of the next nine weeks.
