Stephanie Floyd - Best Crew Ever
April 3, 2019 -- The high school students sent over to the DEVELOPMENTAL PRESCHOOL were AMAZING!!!! They did such A wonderful job. They raked and picked up several bags of yard debris. Not only does it make the outside look great but it also ensures safety for our students as they are playing on the playground! Thank you for allowing the high school students to reach out to our preschool students and to the community they live in! Much appreciation, Stephanie Floyd, Coordinator/Educator Dent County Developmental Preschool

Skills USA Competition - Construction Trades
March 12, 2019 -- Our students started practicing for the Skills USA district contest that took place on Feb. 22nd right after Christmas break. We had to have an in house contest because I had 4 students that were interested in competing but could only take 2 students to the contest. After the in house contest I asked the 2 students that won how often they wanted to practice, they said they wanted to practice 2 to 3 times a week and they even came on a couple of Saturdays. We would practice for 2 to 4 hours in the evening after school. The students even came in on days that we had gotten off for snow days. They really put the time in and wanted to be ready. The day of the contest I could not have been more proud of my students. They had a good day and it showed. There was 12 contestants total from different schools. There were 5 students out of the 12 that got finished with the project. My students were 2 of the five. I could not have been prouder of them both for completing the task at hand. The time and effort that was put forth in practicing, to get better and better really paid off. It shows how dedicated they both were in competing in this contest.
At the awards ceremony on Feb. 27th they gave out awards for the top three places. Dell Hoffmeister who is a junior in the construction 1 class this year placed 1st in the skills contest. At this time I don't know where the other student placed but as I mentioned both students finished their project.
We also had a district written contest in January for Skills USA. There are 7 schools in our district and they send as many students as they want for each program to take the written contest. Jay Busbey who is currently a senior in my construction 1 program this year placed 3rd in the written contest out of 50 to 75 other students.
Both Dell and Jay now get to go to the Skills USA state contest that will be held on April 4th, 5th, and 6th at Linn Tech in Linn Missouri.
Both Dell and Jay did a fantastic job on their projects and written contest and I wish them both luck at the state contest in April.
