Submitted photo. Saturday, Oct. 26, the Kimball Area High School's National Honor Society raked leaves for the Schlu- eter Family. Vanessa Schlueter was fortunate enough to win the high- est bid for this yard cleanup at Kimball's Dollars for Scholars silent auction. The NHS used some cre- ative ideas for picking up leaves like using a pickup truck and tarp to carry leaves. With all the volunteers at the leaf raking, the NHS members were able to clean up the yard in almost no time at all. This is one ot many opportunities to volunteer to help the community that NHS takes partin at our school.

On Oct. 24, and Nov. 1, staff members from the organization known as Youth Frontiers came from Minneapolis to hold a Kind- ness and a Courage Retreat at the Kimball Area High School. Youth Frontiers is an organiza- tion that goes to different schools all around the United States and about 740 retreats are held every year for grades 4-12. They teach students kindness, cour- age, respect, responsibility, and wisdom. At the Kindness Retreat Thurs- day, Oct. 24, 160 fourth graders from Kimball Elementary, and Discovery Elementary of St. Cloud gathered at Kimball Area High School. The all-day event focused on promoting kindness to others and building empathy skills. The speakers talked about the pain- ful effects of bullying and how to prevent it. Twenty-six junior and senior high school leaders from Kimball and Apollo High School aided in leading small groups and keeping up the energy, as well as calming down students when many activities that taught kind- ness and they danced to songs such as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," and "Boom Chicka Boom!" Friday, Nov. 1, a Courage Retreat was held for seventh grad- ers at KAHS. There were about 190 students from South Junior High and KAHS. In addition, there were about 30 junior and senior helpers from Tech High School in St. Cloud and KAHS. Students learned how to follow their hearts instead of falling into peer pressure. They learned how to be courageous and stand up to bullies, and also got to hear real stories of students who were bullied. They left know- ing that although people look dif- ferent, everyone can be friends. Students participated in activi- ties such as the "Giant Jump Rope Challenge," and danced to songs like the "Cupid Shuffle." Both retreats were fun, inspir- ing, and taught a lot to students. They kept students engaged and interested throughout the day while learning, about important life lessons.
