February 16--  The Future Business Leaders of American (FBLA) chapter at Toombs County High School celebrated FBLA week which included raising money for the March of Dimes.

            "Gaining leadership skills! Serving others! Networking and new business experiences!  All were a part of the Toombs County High School Chapter’s FBLA Week!  A special committee of members led by Chairperson Haley Edge planned, organized, and carried out activities to prepare members and business students to be future leaders.

            Activities for the week started with business trivia questions on the daily announcements that earned the winners with the correct answers a prize.

A Clash of the Classes challenge led to donations for the March of Dimes during lunch each day.

Different dress for different days included chapter t-shirts on Member Appreciation Day, Professional Dress for Business Presentation Day, Business casual on Service Day, blue or pink on March of Dimes Day, and green on Go Green Day. Different activities were held in the business classes each day.

A Go Green project taught students tips for helping save the planets by having them create posters with five easy things each person could do to Go Green.           

Presentations about FBLA and an educational presentation about the effects of premature births and the purpose of the March of Dimes were also learning activities for business classes during the week.

Other activities included ice cream for members, treats for the teachers that included candy bars and drinks, a skating party, a pizza dinner, and Bingo with the residents of an area nursing home.

            The week ended with the Seniors being declared the Class Who Loves Babies The Most when the March of Dimes donations were counted. A total of $100 was collected for the mission of researching ways to save babies and prevent premature births.
