King’s Island 2018 Details

April 27, 2018 at 9:05 am

The date for King’s Island is May 25, 2018. The cost is $50. You must have two club fundraisers and two community service credits to be eligible to attend. (If you went on the mall trip, you had at least one community service and one fundraiser or you would not have been allowed to go.)

Current Community Service Opportunity

  1. Totes for Love – You’ll get a community service credit if you bring in two gently used (or new) backpacks, gym bags, or tote bags. These are donated to KY foster care children to carry items when they are in transition. Note: These bags do not need to be fancy or expensive but we ask that they are clean and in good shape.

If you know of a potential community service that you would like to participate in that the advisers might be unaware of, please speak to Mr. Smith or Ms. Neace and as long as it is approved, then you can participate and receive credit toward your King’s Island eligibility.

Current Fundraising Opportunities

Note: To get credit for your club fundraiser, you must raise $10 for the club. Anything you raise past $10 goes toward the price of your King’s Island ticket. And, anything you raise past that, we’ll give it to you in cash on the day of the trip to spend in the park on food, souvenirs, etc.

Also Note: After you have raised $10 for the club, you can pay the $50 for your ticket outright if that’s what you choose to do.

  1. Online Yardsale – Bring in items you want to sell on the ATC online yard sale. You can price the items yourself or let us price them. We will post the item on Facebook, handle payment, and keep track of how much goes toward your tally.
  2. Small Picnic Table Raffle Tickets – We have a small picnic table to raffle. The tickets are $2 each or 6 tickets for $10. You can pickup these tickets to sell from Mr. Smith or Ms. Neace.
  3. Snacks to sell in the Business Classes – Mr. Smith and Ms. Neace can sell pop, chips, snack cakes, etc. out of our classrooms after 1:00 PM. You will be credited with the profit made from what you bring in. For example:
    • If you bring in a 12 pack of Coke or Pepsi products and we sell it, you will get credit for $12 in sales.
    • Individual bags of chips are sold for $0.50 each, so a 32 pack of chips will get you credited for $16.
    • A pack of Zebra Cakes will be sold for $1 each. So a box of 8 gets you credited for $8.
  4. Large Picnic Table Raffle Tickets – These sell for $5 each for a full size picnic table that seats 8-10 adults. If purchased, it would sell for $350-$400. These sell really well.

FBLA Visits Marie Roberts-Caney Elementary to Teach Dollars and Sense

November 1, 2016 at 2:00 pm

On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, thirty members of the Breathitt Area Tech Center Future Business Leaders of America club visited Marie Roberts-Caney Elementary to help with the 4-H “Dollars and Sense” program.

The program simulates budgeting and making smart buying choices. The 4th-6th grade elementary students are given a budget of $135 (in play money) and must visit and make a purchase from each of several stores (operated by the FBLA members). Each store has several buying choices in different price ranges. When students decide what they want to purchase, the FBLA members take payment for the purchase and record it in the students’ check registers.  The students must learn how to make wise choices so they can stay within budget. The young buyers are allowed to return items if they run out of money before visiting all stores. Some of the students learned about tough buying choices since they ran out of money before visiting all stores! At the end of the day, everybody had a great time and learned along the way, while also receiving a 4H piggy bank.

The program was organized by Mrs. Jessica Ritchie and Mrs. Jessica Gross of the University of Kentucky Extension Office 4-H Program. The members and advisers of Breathitt ATC FBLA would like to thank these ladies for the opportunity to participate in this worthwhile activity.
