I would like to invite your high school students to our free virtual college fair for the Midwestern United States! This fair is going on now, it closes on October 10th. The students can log on any time during this week and get information from many colleges. There is a question and answer section for the students to get answers directly from college reps. If you would like to offer your students extra credit for participating in this free college fair I can provide you a list of students from your school that registered and participated in the virtual fair, just e-mail me and let me know if you want a list. The students must go to to the students tab to register this week. This service is completely free and we would love to have your school and students join. Please have your students register as soon as possible if they would like to participate.

SHS takes part in National Manufacturing Day

On Friday, October 2nd Mr. Mullins took his manufacturing classes to American Plastic Molding to highlight National Manufacturing Day. They took a tour of the facilities and learned about the dye making and molding process. The students got to see how everything works from being a client with a product through the dye making and presses on to the final product. Our manufacturing classes are offered at the Mid America Science Park.

Student Council Teaching Leadership

The SHS Student Council spent time this week in the elementary schools teaching leadership workshops. The council members lead the elementary students through several team building and trust activities. Some of these activities include repeat-after-me songs, a Project Pow-Wow, and a team building activity called the spider web. The program ends with an interactive story highlighting the impact that everything you do can have an effect on the people around you.

FFA Kicks Off a New Year.

The Scottsburg FFA Chapter hosted the annual Chapter Kickoff on Thursday, August 20th in the SHS Commons. Chapter Kickoff is a night full of games and fun, all FFA affiliated, as well as a meal prepared by FFA members and the Food Science classes. The event is for all members, but is specifically to welcome freshman or new members. Members had the opportunity to have one-on-one interaction with FFA officers, current members, and advisors. An “Officer Scavenger Hunt” took place, and upperclassmen FFA members shared stories about their favorite memory in FFA. Parents met with advisors were informed about the organization and how our program is run, as well as being informed about events the chapter participates in dates they should remember. The turnout for the night was great and we look forward to a great year with our new members.
