Strategic Doing Meeting

Just a reminder that our next Strategic Doing Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 21st, 7pm at NCK Tech Student Union.

Betty Johnson will meet with us again as a large group next Wednesday.  During that meeting each group will report back on your progress, what you have accomplished, where you are headed in the next 30/60/90 days and what you have learned.  During those reports you will have time to ask questions, get ideas and comments from others at the meeting.  This will be a time to look at any overlap of projects, break down silos and build collaboration where possible.

It is exciting to see these projects start to come to life and witness the collaboration happen.  Be sure to reach out to others who may want to be a part of this opportunity in Mitchell County.  As always, please let Heather know if you need help.

Thank you for being a part of something new to help Mitchell County grow!

ATTENTION!  April is Child Abuse Prevention Month.  NCK CASA will be raising awareness about Child abuse once again and invites you to join us.  Every child deserves to have a happy childhood.  Join us in promoting child abuse prevention this April.

Why we do this?  Children in our community are being abused and neglected.  Abuse cases filed in 2017, per county:  Cloud-77; Mitchell-32; Republic-14; Lincoln-14; Jewell-6.  These are only the new cases filed in 2017 and do not include ongoing cases from previous years.

NCK CASA is part of a national program that recruits, trains and supports community volunteers to advocate for these children and speak up for their best interest.  Once CASA volunteers are trained they are appointed by a judge to a child’s case.  With staff support, CASA’s are able to make a difference in the lives of children in the communities we serve.

Prevention/Awareness:  Many of you are familiar with the April awareness/prevention campaign we launched last year.  Community involvement not only amazed us at NCK CASA but gained interest at the state level.  We are truly blessed to have participation and support from our community and hope you are able to join in this year’s events.  To better prepare for April we have an order form for items available for purchase to show your support.  This is not a fundraiser for CASA.  These items are sold at our cost to make awareness/prevention the main focus.

Wear Blue Day:  We have several activities planned for April and will kick off the month with our Wear Blue Day event.  Friday, April 6th is National Wear Blue Day and we plan on doing just that with help from you.  Blue shirts are available for purchase or wear your own.  We ask that you take a picture, post it on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, #nckcasablueday.  Make sure to like our page, NCK CASA so we can share it on our FB page.

Schools participating in Blue Day:  Concordia CES-CMS-CHS, Glasco K-12, Miltonvale K-12, Clifton-Clyde K-12, Beloit Elementary and Republic County Elementary.

Super Hero Fun Run:  Saturday, April 7th.  Registration forms will be available soon.
