Meeting Times: Meets during lunch on Wednesdays in the counseling room

EP Project: Biggs FNL is implementing Parent Committed, a program where officers and club members educate parents about underage drinking in Butte County.

School Climate Project: Biggs High School Friday Night Live members decided to do Complement Grams this year. Friday Night Live set up a booth for two days, during brunch and lunch, and the students wrote complements to their peers on festive holiday cards. Later, mini candy canes were attached to the compliment cards and distributed. Teachers made some as well, and were happy with the idea of the compliment grams. FNL made sure that everyone got one so no one would feel left out. Some students even showed their appreciation on social media.

Oroville High School

Meeting Times: Wednesday at lunch 12:30pm-1:10pm, in room A4 (Officer Meetings on Monday at lunch in room A4)

School Climate Project: We will have a booth set up with music playing and we will have students come up and fill out feathers that will be part of a large mural. On the feathers, students will get 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 out 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 goo and have their photo taken in front of it to simulate being lifted up in the air!

Our past project: It Starts with Me, is a project we implemented as a group to set a good example to our peers and those around us by choosing to act on those things, first!

Pleasant Valley High School

Meeting Times: Wednesdays at lunch in room B-1

EP Project: Pleasant Valley FNL is implementing Parent Committed, a program where officers and club members educate parents about underage drinking in Butte County. PV FNL members are working in conjunction with Athlete Committed to present Parent Committed toolkits at Athlete Committed Code Nights. PV Friday Night Live’s goal is to educate parents on how they can help the fight in limiting youth access to alcohol by being a “Parent Committed”.

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 Jenny Castaldo. To learn more about FNL on PV’s campus, or to see how you can get involved, contact Jenny Castaldo at JCastaldo@buttecounty.net.
