AG UPDATES

October Edition

ADMINISTRATION & COUNSELING UPDATES

It's been a great start to our first official year. We have a very enthusiastic group of freshmen and positive leadership from our upperclassmen. The Gerlach workday was great, students worked hard and accomplished a great deal. We are thrilled with our student's performance at the Ag in Action field trip. The tour guides and presenters did a wonderful job, and we are so proud of them. Just a friendly reminder that school pick-up and drop-off times can be hectic, please use caution and watch your speed when driving on campus, especially around the barn areas.


*Grades are due this Friday, October 15th. Please make sure your students are passing all of their classes, and be sure to monitor attendance.

AG IN ACTION 2021 IS IN THE BOOKS!

Ag in Action was founded back in the 1990s. This year we had 12 elementary schools and over 1200 4th graders visit our campus to watch our students present on horses, horticulture, poultry, wildlife, floral design, sheep & goats, swine, beef cattle, dairy cattle, ag mechanics, and soil & water. Ag in Action is an excellent example of an outstanding student-led educational experience presented by public high school students, staff, and the community!
