School Climate Project: Officers and chapter members wanted to have more school spirit dress up days and school rallies. They got permission from the principal to have a spirit week for Halloween . Every day of Halloween week was a different dress up day. The officers kept points to see which class had the most spirit. On Halloween they had a school rally and had the cheerleaders performed a dance and games for the classes to battle each other in. The winning class received candy and goody bags.

Oroville High School
Meeting Times: Wednesday at lunch 12:30pm-1:10pm, in room A1
School Climate Project: Oroville High School Friday Night Live members have decided to do holiday complement grams for this year! Friday Night Live will set up a booth during lunch where students can make or choose one of the holiday cards we provide. We will also be attaching candy on the compliment cards and distributing them throughout the school with the help of the attendance office. We also plan on getting the teachers and faulty involved so no one gets left out.
Our Past Project: We had a booth set up with music playing and we had students come up and fill out feathers that will be part of a large mural. On the feathers, students got a chance to write what lifts them up in life. Our goal for this project is to create a sense of togetherness, by identifying the positive things in our lives, while also finding out from others what those important things are in their lives. The end result will be hundreds of feathers in the shape of wings where students can then go and have their photo taken in front of it to simulate being lifted up in the air!

Pleasant Valley High School
Meeting Times: Wednesdays at lunch in room B-3
School Climate Project: It Starts With Me. The “It Starts With Me” movement is an activity where students can pledge what they intend to change, help, or do at their school, for themselves and/or for other students on their campus. For this project the school encouraged our club to “do something more permanent” so our take on this project was a little more unique. During lunch we had a poster that said “It Starts With Me”. Students then had a chance to write on the poster what they are going to change, then the students painted their hand with a bright color and put their hand print on a tree on campus that the club previously painted black the day before. Putting their bright colored hand print on the tree to stand out was the way for the Pleasant Valley students to signify their commitment to making a change that starts with them.
The goal of this project is to spread a more positive and connected feeling among students on the Pleasant Valley High School Campus!
Pleasant Valley FNL is run by Jose Sandoval. To learn more about FNL on PV’s campus, or to see how you can get involved, contact Jose Sandoval at JSandoval@buttecounty.net.
