Tiger Bees Grant

 We are excited to announce that our FFA has been selected by Tractor Supply and the National FFA Foundation to receive a Tractor Supply Company Grant for Growing Chapters of $3,623. This grant will go towards our Fayetteville Tiger Bees project.

This grant will fund the materials and supplies necessary to establish four honey bee hives on the back of the school campus with the intent to expand and split the hives annually. Ultimately, the goal is to also put hives on residential properties in the community per the requests of residents and our students. This will allow for the establishment of a self-perpetuating student-run agricultural business.

Tiger Tracks is Friday, May 18th!


We will try to get the parade in before the rain as early as possible. We have plans to set up the games inside if it does rain! Permission slips will be coming home for those students who are riding the fire truck or one of the wagons. Get those signed and sent back to school. Thanks so much for your support of this event! Extra Tiger Tracks T-shirts are on sale this week and house bracelets are being sold too! We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday!

President's Day graphic

Happy Presidents' Day!


Did You Know?
Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on 

February 22—Washington’s actual day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.
