To relax from a busy year of academics the FFA/Ag Department will have an ice cream social on May 17 at 6:30 p.m. Parents and students will attend with instructors Johnny Hook and Chris Goen making this a very special event for the department.

Condolences to Mrs. Shaw’s children Norma Rodriguez, Vickie Kincheloe, Christy Shaw, and James Shaw Jr., their families, and other family members.
