Middle School has great first day:
A huge box of donuts and encouragement and treats for staff from the Partners in Education (P.I.E.). The students met by grade to take roll, get some quick information and sent to gym, where they wer led in some loud, motivating cheers by Mr. Munford. Then the tradition continued with the VFW Auxiliary #1765 leading the students and staff through the Flag Raising Ceremony. Auxiliary members carried flags into the gym and then member, Glenda Nelson, led the students and staff in The Pledge of Allegiance and read a poem about the Flag and patriotism. Anne Crofford sang the National Anthem. Mr. Huppert did an exciting introduction of the staff followed by some first day instructions from Principal Johnson and some Words of Wisdom from Mrs. Fankhauser, the Guidance Counselor. Mr. Huppert, Mr. Kraft and some student volunteers led in some fun music and movement. Students retired to their Homerooms for further explanation of expectations and then spent time in each of their scheduled classes.
On Sunday August 5th, the Falls City FFA had their first meeting of the 2018-2019 school year. At Hartman field Alumni and current members gathered for a Kickball game, welcoming new members as well as old ones. After the game, a short meeting was held to talk about participation in upcoming events such as Cobblestone and the Demolition Derby. Then a few days later on August 10th, we gathered for our second meeting of the year. We had a bonfire at a member’s house, members came together to enjoy hot dogs and s’mores, as well as get together before they we return to school this Wednesday. The bonfire proved to be a great way to bring together our FFA and discuss what we would like to accomplish during this school year.
