Dollars for Devastation

Schmidt

Blue Hill Art Teacher Mrs. Brown put together a costume day to raise money for schools that were destroyed from Hurricane Harvey. Students had the choice to dress up or buy a raffle ticket for $2, that money will then go to schools affected by the hurricane.

Each person that dressed up had the opportunity to win a prize. One student or group from each class was chosen for the best costume. Blue Hill sophomore Madison Kosse said, “Mrs. Schwinn wore the best costume, because she looks just like the character off of ‘New Girl.’

Prize winners were:

7th- Keiera Schmidt

8th- Keaton Mackin

9th- Victoria Schwab

10th- Jasmine and Madison Menke

11th- Brianna Danehey and Colby Karr

12th- Molly Schendt, Peyton Schmidt, and Britney Toepfer.

Staff – Mr. Jones and Mr. Armes.

 

The event raised around $100.

ACTIONS Day

By Becky Cox

Every year in March CCC hosts their annual ACTIONS Day. ACTIONS stands for Academic Competition That Inspires Our Nation’s Scholars. This is the school’s 26th year hosting. This day originated in Sandy Creek, but quickly outgrew the small school.

A day full of taking tests, sound boring doesn’t it? It can actually be pretty fun. Teachers enter their students in a category they tend to excel in. Events range from Notorious People to Genetics to Music. Students can be entered into three different tests and must at least take two. Around 800 students from 26 schools in the Tri City area attended to compete.

Students from Blue Hill that placed are

Michael Hiller- 4th Accounting & 5th Physical Science

Bobcat Speech Team

by Katlyn Brooks

This season, the bobcat speech team has been placing really good. On February 4th they were invited to Aurora to compete. Poetry placed second and sixth, while Oral Interpretation of Drama (OID) placed third and fifth. They were also invited to Sandy Creek’s competition on February 11th, placing even better. While OID placed fourth, poetry placed first! About two weeks later on February 22nd, was the Twin Valley Conference (TVC). OID placed second and poetry placed fifth. Three days later on February 25th, poetry got fifth place and OID got third place. The team will participate in districts on March 14th at Deshler.

“This is my first year working with the speech team,” says Mrs. Schwinn, “so I’m learning a lot about how the competitions actually work. Blue Hill has a small group compared to many other nearby schools so the chances of winning meets is always slim. However, the events we do take always compete very closely with the best in their respective events. Even after multiple practices and meets, the OID still makes me laugh with their Star Wars characters.”
