National Honor Society and Student Council Leaders Bring Students Together

Target 2 – Leadership in a Student Centered Learning Environment FWSU will foster development of teacher & student leaders who provide innovative opportunities for local and global student-centered learning.

Action Step – Provide multiple avenues for students and staff to lead, advocate, and serve within the school and community.

Student leadership is one of the four pillars of the FWSU Action Plan. It essential that our students, all of our students, learn the traits of leadership such as innovation, collaboration and initiative. At BFA High School students have a variety of avenues to practice and gain leadership  knowledge. Two of those options are the National Honor Society and the Student Council.

Last week both groups worked in concert to pull BFA together after exam week. They developed a plan that built community and understanding through a day of fun and inspiring activities.

Activities ranged from tie-dyeing with Art Teacher Emily Garland, Family and Consumer Teacher Sue O’Brien, and English Teacher Amelia Duffy…


to decorating cookies with Yvonne Eastman from Eastman’s Bakery…


to Clipboard Ping-Pong with Science Teacher Gabe Grant…


to Cotton Candy-Making…


There were many other activities as well but perhaps the one that was talked about the most, and was even being mentioned after the weekend, was the bouncy-house Obstacle Course. The bouncy house was a big hit for elementary and middle school classes, and it gave high school students an opportunity to interact with and serve as role models for students in the younger grades.


Sara Villenueve, National Honor Society Advisor, summed it up well when she said, “Sometimes its important for students to just be able to have fun with each other.” The funding for the activities was provided by the Student Council as a great way to wrap up the semester.
