YEARbook Cover Debut!

IMG_3358.JPG

Sophie Kreklau, WDC Yearbooks editor, is so proud to debut the cover of the 2019 WDCHS yearbook! The cover concept was truly Sophie's brain child. The students in the photos are actual WDC seniors, and Jostens edited the sky to a very WDC prideful blue and gold. It is exciting to show off this amazing cover!

If you haven't ordered your yearbook yet, there is still time. Extra 9-12 ($43) and 5-8 ($12) yearbooks were ordered, so please get your money to Ms. Hawkins ASAP. The elementary yearbooks (PreK-4) are currently being sold, and the final day to guarantee a copy of that book is February 28th; the cost is $12. You can also order your yearbooks online at jostensyearbooks.com.

National FFA week has officially begun!

Agriculture is part of our daily lives — from the food we eat, to the clothes we wear. Nearly 670,000 FFA members across the country will share the story of agriculture as part of National FFA Week. Whether it is through service projects or community gatherings, National FFA Week is a time for FFA members to raise awareness about the role the National FFA Organization plays in the development of agriculture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education.”

A big part of National FFA Week is interacting with the community while also giving back to the people who help supports the chapter day in and day out. FFA chapters give back to their communities through service projects during FFA Week.

Way to go, Wadena-Deer Creek FFA! We salute you!
