To start the week, the HS softball team traveled to Mooreland to play a three-way round. They played Seiling in the first game and won 5-0. Then, they turned around and played Mooreland. The Arnett girls won 7-2. 

The HS boys were also on the road Monday. They traveled to Cheyenne to play and lost 12-2. 

Tuesday the JH and HS girls softball team traveled to Cheyenne to play Cheyenne-Reydon. The JH girls lost 8-6. The HS girls played a double header and lost 5-9. 

In 6th grade science, the students have been learning about the structures of plant and animal cells. Tuesday they had the opportunity to build their own edible cell. They each chose a large sugar cookie, and they used icing and different candies to decorate and label their cell. The shape of the cell and  the actual cell organelles had to look very similar to actual cells. After finishing their project, they were able to enjoy eating their model. 

Wednesday twelve Arnett FFA members traveled with Mr. Johnston to Ft. Supply to compete in a sporting clays event. We had three teams enter and compete against some very tough teams. 

Thursday the District games started. The boys traveled to Cheyenne and took on Lookeba-Sickles in the first round. They won 15-2 and moved on to play Leedey in the second round. Leedey ended up beating our boys in the second round of districts, so the Wildcats had to play Lookeba Sickles again. Unfortunately our boys lost to Lookeba. This sadly ended the boys season. They did a great job this season and made our school very proud! 

Also on Thursday, the girls played Tyrone at home. They swept the Bobcats 21-0 and 12-0 and advanced to regionals. They will play Dover in Dover Thursday at noon. Good luck Lady Wildcats!

On Friday, teachers and staff attended a professional development presentation led by Kevin Gray, a school safety and security specialist with the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Mr. Gray offered great instruction over De-Escalation and Options Based Thinking.  Between sessions, Arnett faculty enjoyed a wonderful lunch from Gusto's Italian Grill.

Congratulations to both Eli Coykendall and Adante Smith for being chosen to participate in the WOCDA JH Honor Choir. They will be performing October 23 in Elk City. 

Arnett Beta Club Sponsor, Mrs. Burcham, is also serving as the Oklahoma Jr. Beta State Sponsor 2023-2025.
