Cap and Gown Picture Day

Attention seniors!

It is that time of year when we are starting to wrap up the loose ends before graduation. The yearbook staff would like to let you know that Senior Cap & Gown Pictures will be taken on Tuesday, February 27th here at Auburndale High School.  Seniors should have received their information packets from their first period teachers, and will need to stop by room 501 to schedule their appointment prior to Tuesday morning.

Students can also email Mrs. Cobb at regina.cobb@polk-fl.net to schedule an appointment.  The photographer will provide the cap and gown.  There will not be retakes.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Cobb or Ms. Kauwell at 863-965-6200 ext. 261.

We had 3 students exhibit FFA Projects at the State Fair:

Ivanna Tavira showed a hog, which weighed 284 and she received a 2nd place ribbon for her piggy and 2nd place in her class for showmanship.

Breanna Thornton showed her bull calf  and heifer.  The bull received reserved grand champion for the open show (both adults and youth can show in this category) and 3rd place over all for the youth show.

Caleb Nelson showed poultry: 4 Rhode Island red hens.  They got 1 blue and 3 red ribbon and Caleb placed 3rd overall  in seniors for showmanship.

Ciara Kintner also showed open show for a ranch; she won 2 blue ribbons for the open beef show and Division Grand Champion for the open show as well. She showed a heifer and a young bull.

Congratulations to all!

Congratulations to the Student Government Association, who represented AHS at the FASC state competition this weekend in Orlando! Over the past three days the students attended leadership workshops, networked with other schools, and saw some inspirational guest speakers. We received 1st place for citizenship development led by Aby Rausch, third place for health and safety led by Brainard Suttles, and a bronze medal overall for our student government! With schools from all over the state it was truly an honor to represent AHS.
