    Happy Easter!  Hop into Technology!

    Shout Outs

    Mr. Volquardsen’s 7th grade reading group is currently studying poetry. After reading three poems about dreams, they had to write their own poem about their dreams and present it via Flipgrid. They then watched each others poetry videos and silently voted on their favorite. The winner of the poetry contest was Lillian.

     

    Mrs. Kabe’s 2nd graders used a template from Seesaw to write words with prefixes and suffixes. Tomorrow we will use it to learn about Easter Around the World and fill out a KWL chart Seesaw provided.  On move up day the first graders will be writing and drawing a picture of their future selves using Seesaw, to read on their first day of 2nd grade.

     

    The 7th Graders are using imgflip.com to create Memes to welcome the 6th Graders on Move Up Day.  Here is Mr. Bachman’s example:).

This year the Clarkson-Leigh chapter took 16 members and 2 advisors.

     

    The opening ceremony began on Thursday at 1:00. The attendees listened to a speaker by the name of Holly Hoffman from the popular television show Survivor. This year's theme at FBLA was create, lead, and inspire. Students competed in events on Thursday evening and Friday all day.

    Senior Spotlight: Holly Kuhr

    January 25, 2001, was a day of smiles for Russ and Beth Kuhr as they welcomed their first daughter, Holly Beth Kuhr, into their family in Columbus, Nebraska.

     

    Holly has two older brothers, Zach, age 23 and Ben, age 22, and a younger sister, Brianne, age 12. The Kuhr family also wouldn’t be complete without their dog Chipper.

     

    To get to know this senior a little bit better, Holly says the three best words to describe her are “happy, outgoing, and funny.” Her worst bad habit is “watching TV when she knows she should be doing more important things.”

     

    Holly has many favorite things.  Her favorite subject in school is science. Her favorite movie is Son in Law, her favorite restaurant is Texas Road House, and her favorite sports team is the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

     

    Outside of school, you can find Holly doing something outside, playing cards, or playing volleyball with her sister.

     

    When asked who she admires most in the world, Holly would say her parents because they are very fun people and are always supportive.

     

    Throughout high school, Holly has been involved in volleyball, One-Act, FFA, and speech for four years; yearbook, journalism, and Quiz Bowl for three years; and golf for one year.  

     

    Holly has received honors in many activities. She has been honored as a Cornhusker Girls’ State graduate, served as an FFA chapter officer for 3 years, received Student of the Month, earned Academic All-State honors in Music and Speech, been named an Outsanding Performer at State One-Act for 3 years, and medaled at State Speech for 3 years.

     

    Holly will also be honored at graduation, as she is the Class of 2019 Salutatorian.

     

    With her many accomplishments, Holly says her proudest high school moment was being a lead actress in 3 of the 4 years that the One-Act team made it to the State One-Act Championships.

     

    Holly has had many memories throughout high school, but her favorite would be have to be winning the district final and being crowned district champions in volleyball her junior year. Holly also claims her most embarrassing moment of her high school career is tripping all the time.

     

    After high school, Holly plans to attend Wayne State College for 2 years before transferring to the University of Nebraska Medical Center for 2 years, majoring in Radiography.

     

    Three goals on Holly’s bucket list are to go skydiving, swim with dolphins, and travel. If she could travel anywhere in the world, Holly would want to visit Hawaii where she could lounge on the beach and drink from coconuts all day.

     

    After college, in 10-15 years, Holly sees herself working at a hospital in the area and possibly having a family. If she is fortunate enough to win the lottery, Holly intends to travel, spending the money on trips to Hawaii and Alaska.

     

    Her inspirational advice to underclassmen is, “Make every moment fun, even if it isn’t!”

     

    Congratulations and good luck, Holly!
