2015-2016 Foxcroft Academy Key Club
The Foxcroft Academy Key Club students are busier than ever this Christmas season.
George Rolleston, Advisor and several FA Key Club students attend our meetings and report on what they are doing to contribute to our community.
Last week they worked at the Center Theatre, shopped for Christmas presents for needy children and families for the Kiwanis Christmas Program, wrapped Christmas presents, worked at the Congregational Church carrying bags of presents for the Kiwanis Christmas Project, had 23 volunteers work at the Reindeer Run which raised $600, and worked at the Hometown Holidays Christmas event.
The Club even had time to clean the trophy case, work at two swim meet events at the PRYMCA, and help with the Backpack Program at SeDoMoCha, as well as participating in the Lt. Governor's election at Foxcroft Academy!!
Thank You FA Key Club!

30 HOUR FAMINE - By Elizabeth Morrison
On March 28th about 50 Foxcroft Academy Key Clubbers awoke and without
breakfast went to school; without lunch the went to sports practice, music
lessons and play practice then without dinner they returned to Foxcroft to
perform community service. From 4:30pm until 9:00pm the hungry students
swept the stairs, washed white boards, set up chairs for an upcoming
concert, made posters and washed buses. Overall participants accumulated
over 160 hours of service cleaning and improving the school and in pledges
raised over $1,300 which will be donated to the children's charities. Through
this event much time was given to the school and money to charity, but
furthermore the children who participated gained a sense of awareness. They
learned what is was like to be hungry, the severity of fatigue and nausea 30
hours without food brings. It was a humbling, yet inspiring event that will
become a tradition for FA key club members.
FA Key Club attends Kiwanis Meeting on March 25th talking about their plans for "30 hour fast" in a quest for fighting famine.
So what exactly are the rules? - by Selina Guo
1: Everyone is encouraged to raise or donate $25 or more. (trying to raise over $1500 for DCON)
2: You are not allowed to eat during 30 hours except the followings:
popsicles, jello, and CLEAR fluids such as water, tea with no sugar/milk. NO MILK!
3: Stay Hydrated, and be healthy
4: Stay after school Friday March 28th at the Student Center for school projects and other fun activities.
Why are we starving ourselves for Community Service Hours??
This event is to bring awareness towards children (in countries such as Syria) who have no food or shelter.
We want YOU to get a taste of what their lives are like.
30 HOURS OF FAMINE
It is the most important project that we are participating now.
It is really FUN!!!
It can help us to raise money for DCON.
It can give you 30 hours of CSH
But first.. why are we doing this...?
If 30 hours is already too much, can you even imagine yourself having no food for days? Not even Popsicles?
Where will the money go?
All the money will go to Camp Sunshine, KPTI and COPI at Dcon
Last year we donated $2000 Dollars and received 2 plaques!!
Seniors who want to wear the Key Club Medallion at graduation will need to be a member of good standing (50hr.) This can help you get your hours.
Anyone who have special requirements that affect you, please let Mr. R know ASAP.
