The classes came out in shifts to put together a total of 60 tie blankets of all different sizes. Chucky Porter explained, "We're giving them to charity and people who need them." Arawen Nelson said that it felt good to be do- ing something for others. Gudmundson said that the students would be de livering the blankets this week as a part of Random Acts of Kindness Week. "We have determined that the blankets will be donated to the Pregnancy Help Center, the Good Sam, and the First Care Hospital/Ambulance Service," she said adding that the third graders, fifth and sixth grades would be making the deliveries. The elementary students also are using Febru- ary as a chance to participate in Pennies for Patients. The fundraising competition being facilitated by the fourth grade class pits the classes in PreK through sixth grade as well as staff and area business up against one another in a competition to raise mon- ey for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Fourth grade teacher Brett Omdahl, who is in charge of the project, said they have a set a goal of $2,015. "The class that raises the most per student av- erage gets a pizza party," Omdahl said. Fourth graders also will be learning how to write business letters, which they will use to help seek out donations. Omdahl said they have planned out spirit days on each Tuesday and Friday throughout the month to raise awareness to the project. February has presented as a perfect opportuni- ty to share the love.

Colton Sko- rheim, and his accomplice, Michael Nord, arrived just shy of fashionably late, as the business meeting was drawing to a close. They were present for the an- nouncement of the material cho- sen for the 2015 Sobak Chal- lenge: cardboard tubes (of the sort used in toilet paper, paper tow- el, gift wrap, shipping boxes & net wrap). They were able to join in the presentation on small engines given by club leader, Mark Hodek, as well. Mr. Hodek also demon- strated the correct way to fill a small.propane tank from a larger one. While the Hayshakers sat enraptured, Mrs. Hodek brought forth an elegant spread of delec- table edibles, including lasagna, garlic bread, deviled eggs, punch, muffins & frosted brownies. The Hayshakers will meet again on February 15th at 1:00 pm. They will assemble at the Hodek Farm, & then travel to the Lake Region Curling Club in Devil's Lake to try their hands at the sport of curling.
