CBNA FBLA 2014 Fall Activities

CBNA's Pink Out Event

CBNA FBLA Members Cara La Plante, Alandra Beaver, Meghan Percy, Brittany Guillemette, Daphne Jordan and Katherine Hyland help hand out breast cancer awareness materials at CBNA’s “Pink-Out” day.

The Coe-Brown Northwood Academy chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) has been extremely busy during the first part of the school year. Members Nicole Beaupre, Meghan Percy, Andrew Shultz, Alex Yonchak, Brittany Guillemette, and Daphne Jordan, along with advisor Dr. JoAnn Zylak, attended the annual FBLA Fall Leadership Workshop on Thursday, October 9 at Southern NH University. These six members got a chance to meet the State Officer team, had a workshop by an inspirational speaker on “It’s Up to You!” and attended workshops on Team Building/Leadership Training and on Law Enforcement/ Leadership in the community. The chapter participated in Breast Cancer Awareness on October 22 at CBNA—wearing all pink, giving out pink ribbons, and sharing breast cancer statistics (awareness) through announcements during the week. Members have already been taught to juggle by faculty member Greg Samuel to learn the concept of juggling life activities at an FBLA workshop here at CBNA, and are participating in the LifeSmarts competition online. In the future, the chapter will be Helping Veterans through awareness on Veteran’s Day, by walking in the Veteran’s Day Parade in Manchester, and by volunteering to help serve at a veteran’s breakfast in Manchester. CBNA FBLA also participates in the Multiple Sclerosis Walk and Awareness every April in Manchester and collects throughout the year for the MS Society and the March of Dimes to help find cures, and will have guest speakers at the FBLA Induction Ceremony on Nov. 10 to get more information about these debilitating conditions. FBLA members are also collecting for Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, and have already donated all their “tip” money earned by working at the Farmer’s Market Booth at Deerfield Fair and will continue collecting for CHaD until March of next year to help children in need. Members have made a children’s piggy bank which is available for donations at CBNA. In addition, members are involved with Diabetes awareness activities and hope to have a Virtual Business Challenge going throughout this year. More guest speakers and conferences as well as a spring competition in various business, computer, math, and economic areas are planned.

Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets. Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Clarence “Mugsy” Leggett. Mugsy is one of the world’s extraordinary dribblers and a former Harlem Globetrotter, satiated by the game of Devon “The People’s Choice” Curry and left awestruck by high-flying dunks of Cliff “Jet Blue” Malone, who was featured in the Nike commercial released on Super Bowl Day. Since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the All Time Funny Man and one of Show Basketball’s Greats……. James “Speedy “Williams, who was featured in the movie, “Above The Rim” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin. Speedy was also one of the “Original Nike Free-Style Ballers in the Nike Commercial, he performed live at the MTV Music Awards while Jay Z did his thing, and is better known as The “Crowned Prince of Laughs”. The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.

In this special event to raise money for the Coe-Brown Northwood Academy boys and girls basketball programs, the CBNA Faculty All-Star “Dream Team” has graciously agreed to face the Harlem Rockets.

Advance tickets for what promises to be a fun-filled evening for the community are $8 for students and seniors and $10 for adults and are available from basketball team members or at the CBNA Main Office.

Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Theatre will proudly present the award winning musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on October 23, 24 and 25, 2014 at 7 pm in the Gerrish Gym on the CBNA campus. With lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat tells the Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors which comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father’s favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock ‘n’ roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless. The title character of Joseph is played by junior Isaac Guzofski, and the Narrators of this great story are played by senior Rachel Dallaire and junior Janais Axelrod. Other cast members bring the tale to life include seniors Olivia Anatone, Hannah Grady, Jordan Roach, Colton Rush, and Alec Schleich; juniors Jessica Cooper, Claire Hammond, Damian May, Jared Neal, Emily Therrien, and Ryan Wadleigh; sophomores Cassandra Barnhart, Sierra Brady, Lauren Burrows, William Girard, Joseph Guptill, and Arianna Jones; and freshmen Zachary Helm, Nina Laramee, Kayla Pollak, and Allison Rose. The production is directed by faculty member Elizabeth Lent with musical direction by David Deardorff and choreography by Kolby Hume. Reserved tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students and seniors, and are available by calling 942-5531, ext. 237, by email elent@coebrown.org or at the main office before or after school. This dazzling and entertaining performance is one you don’t want to miss.

Twelve Coe-Brown Northwood Academy students, led by CBNA Spanish Professor Michael Clauss, traveled to Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula in June, 2014 for an educational tour. The group traveled to several Mayan archeological sites, including Chichén Itzá, one of the seven wonders of the modern world. They also visited the Spanish colonial cities of Valladolid, Mérida, and Chetumal, had lessons in traditional dance, tried many types of regional food, visited a traditional Mayan home and experienced eco-tourism by swimming in waterfalls, in underground caves, and at Mexico’s pristine beaches. Collecting photos of VW beetles and items for a photo scavenger hunt rounded out the fun.
