2nd Grade "Farm in a Glove"

2nd graders, along with some of Mrs. Fishburn's FFA students, created a 'farm in a glove'. This activity was sponsored by Stacy Cary-Jenkins from Gratiot County Farm Bureau. FFA students read and donated a copy of the book Full Of Beans by Peggy Thomas to each classroom, and students planted 5 different types of seeds in a glove. They were able to take their farm in a glove home and observe them as they grow!

FFA News

10 Breckenridge FFA students attended the Michigan State FFA Convention this year! 2 students competed, Miranda Bloomquist in the Creed Speaking contest and Shayla Jolliff in the Job Interview contest. Miranda earned a gold at the state level and placed 4th! Shayla also earned a gold and placed 5th! These girls put a lot of hard work into their contests and did a fabulous job. Students also received awards at the convention. Three seniors earned their State FFA Degree: Dillon Goward, Cramer Laurenz, and Kara Whiting. The State Degree is one of the most prestigious FFA awards and these students have put a lot of time and effort into their Supervised Agricultural Experiences and their FFA careers! Additionally, we had four students be recognized as Outstanding Juniors - Julie Becker, Marissa Bloomquist, Calista Goward, and Shayla Jolliff! These girls are poised and ready to get their State FFA Degrees next year. Finally, we had many students receive Academic Excellence Awards from the Michigan FFA. Those students were: Dillon Goward, Dakota Hadanek, Cramer Laurenz, Julie Becker, Marissa Bloomquist, Calista Goward, and Shayla Jolliff! Beyond this, students attending were able to watch other State level teams compete to get ideas for next year, interact with other Gratiot County FFA Chapters, and listen to inspiring sessions hosted by the Michigan State FFA Officers! It was a very productive 3 days, and a great one for our FFA Huskies!


Ag Skills contests are this month. We should have several teams competing at MSU on April 22nd.


On March 23rd, FFA Chapter Officers went out to work with students at the elementary in a partnership with Farm Bureau. We visited two second grade classrooms, read through a book, and put together farms in gloves.

BOND UPDATE

As Spring Break comes to an end, we are inching towards a very busy summer. We have a large amount of site work that is on schedule. This includes new courtyards at the high school, new concrete sidewalks at the high school and football fields, a new ticket booth, new dugouts and batting cages at the baseball/softball fields, and fencing at the ballfields and at the elementary school.


As the school year is winding down, we have the majority of work completed in 7 classrooms at the high school and we will be beginning work on 7 more before the end of the school year. Summer interior work will include new ceilings and lighting in the hallways and cafeteria. High school locker rooms continue to be worked.


The elementary addition work continues. The roof work is wrapping up, concrete floors will be poured, and interior work will ramp up in April and May.


Thank you for your continued support of our district. Go Huskies!


-Wade Slavik, Superintendent

Keep the Huskies Healthy!

If your student stays home from school sick, or leaves school early, please keep them home until they have been symptom free for at least 24 hours.


If your student is a close contact of someone at school who has tested positive for Covid, we recommend wearing a mask for 10 days and testing on the 5th day since contact. If your student develops symptoms, your student may test, but must stay home until symptoms are gone. Rapid tests are available upon written request (E-mail or note) of the parent/guardian and will be administered by administration.

If your student is a close contact of someone at home who has tested positive for Covid, we require the student to test for 5 days after contact in order to stay in school.


If staff/students test positive, they must isolate at home for 5 days. They may return after 5 days if they are symptom free, but they must wear a mask for the next 5 days. If choosing not to wear a mask when they return after day five, they must isolate for the full 10 days.
