November 13-17

Tsday, 14 Nutty Day-Farmer Appreciation

 

Dress like a farmer and show some love for farmers and peanuts on this nutty farmer appreciation day! See a FBLA Adviser in the Business Department for a pack of fresh roasted peanuts! (while supplies last).

 

Announcement: Peanuts are a source of folic acid which helps the body make healthy new cells. It is important for women to get enough before and during a pregnancy to prevent major birth defects called neural tube defects including spina bifida. A great source of folic acid is peanuts, whether raw, boiled, or roasted! Have a great and nutty day!


Wednesday, 15 CrAzY Sock Day

 

Looking silly to save babies: pull out your zaniest socks and sport them proudly!

 

Announcement: While the rate of premature births has been increasing, surveys show that most people have no idea how widespread or how serious the problem is. Tell a friend what you have learned about premature birth.

 

        MISSION MOMENT: During 1st Block, colleting pennies to twenties for Babies!



Thursday, 16 PREMATURITY AWARENESS DAY: All out in Purple!

 

See who can wear the most purple – from their toes to their head! Think socks, shoes, shirts, accessories, even hair color… if you can wear it, it should be purple!

 

Announcement: Premature birth is when the baby is born before 37 weeks; a typical pregnancy lasts 40 weeks.


Friday, 17 Blue Jeans for Babies 

 

Wear any Blue Jeans for Babies T-shirt or a Purple shirt and Rock out your best jeans! Throw that denim jacket on too – it’s OK if they’re different denim shades, because it’s all in the name of saving babies.

 

Announcement: Babies born too small or too soon end up in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, known as a NICU. The March of Dimes helped in the funding and the development of NICUs in America in the 1970s.
