FFA Grant Put to Good Use FFA Grant Put to Good Use

The Hickman County FFA Chapter received a grant from Cargill this spring to purchase 11 laptops for the agriculture classes. Because of the demand on the two computer labs in the high school, the Agriculture Department is very thankful for Cargill allowing us this opportunity to update our program with new technology which will be used for agriculture research and classroom presentations. Along with the 11 laptops, the grant also purchased a computer-charging cabinet which will house all the laptops and ipads, and a wireless printer. With the laptops we are able to conduct research and gain access to student SAE accounts along with filling out Regional and State Officer applications which all have to be submitted online. Also our chapter wants to thank Lynne Deweese for her work in bringing our programs together and for being one of our biggest supporters. We thank Cargill once again for this opportunity to keep us on the cutting edge of technology. (Emily Cooley- Chapter Reporter and Autumn Dillon- Asst. Reporter)

The districts earned the recognition under the fourth year of the Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All accountability system. To qualify as a District of Distinction, a district has to have an overall accountability score at the 95th percentile or higher (based on achievement, gap, growth, college- and career-readiness, graduation rate and program reviews), meet its current year Annual Measureable Objective, have at least a 95 percent participation rate, and not have a Focus or Priority School in the district. The achievement data is based on K-PREP testing in spring 2015.

The Districts of Distinction for the 2014-15 school year are:

 Calloway County

 Floyd County

 Fort Thomas Independent

 Hickman County

In addition, Hickman County, Calloway County and Russell Independent were recognized as High Progress Districts, which means they are in the top 10 percent of improvement compared to other districts in the state.

Biology Teams Up With Agriculture For Reasearch Project Biology Teams Up With Agriculture For Reasearch Project

The students in Mrs. Gardner’s Biology classes are teaming up with Mr. Irvin’s Agriculture classes to research the effect different fertilizers have on tomato plant yield. The Biology students began their project by germinating the plants from seeds the size of a pin head. Once roots appeared, they were transplanted to a container of potting soil and placed in the greenhouse, where Mr. Irvin and the agriculture students have installed an irrigation system to ensure each plant receives a controlled amount of water. The students have become quite attached to their plants, going as far as to naming them and referring to them as their babies or children. The students visit the greenhouse several days a week to collect data and care for their plants. The research project will continue through the month of October and possibly into November.  Click read more for photos of project.

 
Hickman County Schools Provide Meals at No Charge To Students
 

It is with great pleasure that our school announces the ability to provide a breakfast and lunch each day at no charge to students. We have added new meal choices based on student preference, and anticipate options to be of greater quality than ever before. We are also excited to announce that we will begin a grab and go breakfast program in hopes to make breakfast more accessible to each student before beginning their day of learning. We look forward to an opportunity to ensure that no kid will ever go hungry at Hickman County Schools.
