This past Monday, December 6, was the Annual Arnett FFA Labor auction. The Arnett FFA chapter would like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting them! They greatly appreciate your support ! Just a reminder to those who bought someone, you have bought them to work eight hours, and it does not matter how you divide up the time. 

On December 11 and 12, Makale Hamil, Makenzi Hamil, and Luke Wheeler will be traveling to Norman for the FFA Made For Excellence conference, where they will learn public speaking and leadership skills. Emma Knowles and Abigail McReynolds will be going to OKC for Advance Leadership Development to further their FFA leadership roles and bring back new ideas to share with other FFA members .

The 4th, 5th and 6th graders made biography posters this past  week in Mrs. Wheeler's reading classes.  Each student chose a book about a person that they were interested in. The students then created a poster about that person. The posters had to include a title, two pictures, a brief description of the person, birthday and death date (if necessary), and a QR code that was linked to the student's voice.  The students had to record themselves telling interesting facts about their person.
