Congratulations goes out to all the FFA members who participated with our FFA this past year –

At last night’s County FFA Federation Banquet the Auburndale Sr FFA Chapter was awarded 3rd place for the most actively successful chapter in Polk County.  This is a great honor since we are a much small chapter than many others in the county and that most other High school FFA chapter have multiple teachers.  Destiny Blackmon received her trophy for placing 3rd in the County FFA Star Green-hand (1st year ag/FFA member) contest and she received a $100 check from Mr. Donald Bronson for her achievement.  We are very proud of all the accomplishments of our FFA chapter.

AHS Welcomes Judge Bob Doyel

After Mrs. Fountain’s English 2 classes finished up reading “Julius Caesar,” they are now going to put Brutus on trial for the murder of Julius Caesar.  This is going to teach the students skills in the argumentative writing process in a fun and engaging way. In order to learn more about trials and the court system, Judge Bob Doyel was invited to come to speak to her English classes on Friday, May 19th. It was a learning process for us all, and the students were inspired from Judge Doyel’s experiences. We are thankful he came to speak to our AHS students and look forward to him coming back to judge the murder trial against Brutus!
