FFA Forestry Place 2nd at UK Field Day

The FFA team traveled to Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday, April 19th and Thursday, April 20th to participate in the UK Ag Field Day. The team competed in multiple events including having two teams of students judging livestock, quiz bowl members, job interview, demonstrations, horse judging, and forestry. During UK Ag Field Day all of the students that are eligible to participate in their CDE’s go for the day to compete against hundreds of other FFA members.

We would like to congratulate our Forestry team for placing second overall in the forestry competition. We are still awaiting the results for our livestock and horse judging teams.

We are happy that we had the opportunity to travel to Lexington, Kentucky to compete and improve our skills. Congratulations once again to our Forestry team for placing second.

Transition Fair

The Scott County Transition Fair was held this afternoon in McClain Hall. Students with special needs were invited to attend this event which introduced them to the many services that are available to them now as well as when they finish high school.

Numerous parents also attended the fair in order to gather information about employment services and social services for their children.

We appreciate the effort that Dustin Marshall, the Scott 2 Special Ed Director, devoted to the planning and implementation of today's event. We would also like to thank the community members who came to provide information to our students.

The SHS Academic Teams competed this past Tuesday night at the Austin Regional. SHS finished first or tied for first in our class in 5 of the 6 categories. The other category we finished a close second. The theme this year was on the French Revolution. Students studied extra materials to prepare for this year's tournament. Teams qualify for the state based upon the score from the Regional competitions held across the state.

SHS missed qualifying for the state this year by one or two questions in several categories. We want to congratulate our teams for their hard work and great finish to the season. Thanks to all of our coaches for their time and efforts to help prepare them for this competition.

Here's how we finished by discipline:

Fine Arts - 1st

Social Studies - 1st

Interdisciplinary - 1st

English - 1st

Science - 2nd on a tiebreaker

Math - 2nd

In this adapted version for the stage, The Canterbury Tales tells how a group of pilgrims travel from London to Canterbury to visit the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket.
