When: March 23, 2023
We need at least 10 kids to sign up before they will come.
After the unfortunate sudden collapse and cardiac arrest suffered by the young Buffalo Bills football player, that I’m sure most of us have seen on TV. I would like to at this time let you know that we can come to your school and screen student’s hearts for any abnormalities. Our screenings include blood pressures, EKG, and a limited echocardiogram (which is an ultrasound of the heart). These are then reviewed by a pediatric cardiologist and the results are mailed to the parents. Anyone between the ages 11-34 is able to have a screening done. Cost of the screening is $89.00, if there are multiple children in a family who want it done each additional child is only $44.50. Please feel free to contact Mike King @ email@example.com if you would be interested in having a screening.

This year the Irene-Wakonda FCCLA has decided to make baskets with period products in them to place in community restrooms. Members decided upon this project because they saw a need in the community for feminine hygiene products. We plan to make 20 baskets with donations made by the community. After the baskets have been assembled by members they will be placed in womens restrooms around the area to be used when you're in a pinch.
In a 2021 national survey of college students, researchers at George Mason University and the University of Pennsylvania found that 10% of all female college students are unable to afford menstrual products each month, leading to skipped classes and greater self-reported rates of moderate or severe depression.
We do not want any woman to feel ashamed because they cannot afford menstrual products. Our hope is to supply women the products they need when they need them. Lydian Mews, Katelyn Tallman and Natalie Girard are in charge of this community service project and presenting at the state FCCLA meeting this coming April.
Don't forget we are accepting donations for the baskets until February 3rd. If you would like to donate, leave the products at the high school office or with an FCCLA member. Thank you.
The I-W FCCLA will be selling Valentine's Day candy with a card again this year. Cost is $2 per card/candy order. All orders are due Feb 9th.
Thank you I-W FCCLA
