Thank You To Our Community

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Elementary’s School Store Fundraiser. We were completely overwhelmed with the generosity of our community. Students were asked to share the fundraising information with family and friends via email. Anyone wanting to participate in the fundraiser could purchase items, magazines, or make a monetary donation to a specific classroom. Here are a few snapshots of some of the items we were able to purchase for our students to use in our classrooms.

Thanks again, The Elementary Teachers and Students

FFA Greenhand and Chapter Degree Ceremonies

Dear FFA Parents and Guardians,

It is with great pleasure I invite you to join us on Tuesday evening at the Hay Springs School Auditorium for our chapter Greenhand and Chapter Degree Ceremonies at 7:30 pm. Since we were not able to conduct any of our end of the year activities we will be awarding the Greenhand Degrees to twenty-five chapter members. We will also be recognizing those individual students who received district and state level awards during the 2019-20 school year. We will also be presenting Chapter Degrees to fourteen of our chapter members. We will also be recognizing the officer team that served our chapter last year, in our first year of reinstatement, as well as those individuals that have offered their support over the past year. Our final ceremonies for the evening will be the installation of the 2020-21 Chapter officers.

Due to the risk of COVID, we will be limiting our attendance to only the families of our FFA members. We will however be live streaming this event which hopefully will allow for other supporters of our program to observe these ceremonies.  The live stream will be available for viewing at the following address:

The agenda for the evening will be as follows:
-Opening Ceremonies – 2019-20 Officer Team
-Welcome
-Greenhand Degree Ceremonies – 2019-20 Officer Team
-2019-20 Award Recognition
-Chapter Degree Ceremonies – 2019-20 Officer Team
-Appreciation of our 2019-20 Chapter Officers and local supporters
-Installation of the 2020-21 Officer Team

I certainly hope that you can plan to attend this event and support your students efforts.

Sincerely,
Mr. D. Russell Lechtenberg, Advisor
