Students in Mrs. Paul’s Arts & Humanities rotation classes created these beautiful butterflies in connection with their study of the art of Japanese origami. Like paper itself, origami actually originated in China but became popular in Japan as early as the 1600’s. Students began by first decorating the paper with original designs. Then they formed their butterflies without cutting by creating a series of folds from a single sheet of paper.

FFA Farm Safety Day

   What is Farm Safety Day? For the Hickman County FFA, its more than just a day out of class, it’s a chance to connect with the younger kids in our school system. Also, it’s a tool we use to teach kids how to safely operate farm equipment. In other words, we give a quick tour of various farm machinery that we have here in Hickman County and show them all the safety aspects of that machine. This is a day that we all look forward to and thankfully, with the support of local equipment dealers, farmers, and the school system, we make it happen. As for the FFA, it’s our way of giving back to the school and the community for all they do.

Student Has a Gift for Art

When a large bookshelf was moved out of English teacher Ann Pettit’s room, she was left with a very gray, blank wall in her bright, colorful classroom. Something had to be done.  Using social media, Mrs. Pettit asked for volunteers who would be willing to fill the space with an inspirational quote and art work.  Ashleigh Trevino, daughter of Wendy Stairs and Ralph French, accepted the challenge.  Ashleigh earned twenty hours of community service that will be beneficial to her as a senior in the college entrance and scholarship application process.  Great job, Ashleigh!!
