A summer with the Prosser FFA

By Kassidy Bush
Over the summer, the Prosser FFA Chapter will be very busy. From fairs to leadership conferences, the Prosser FFA Chapter is still hard at work, even when the school year is over. Remember folks, agriculture never stops in this town.
The Washington Agricultural Leadership Experience (WALE) is a conference that a few kids from the chapter will be attending. The conference will be held in Prosser from July 27 through the 29 in the Agriculture Complex at the high school. FFA members will be developing their leadership skills, exploring career opportunities in agriculture, and partaking in hands-on team practices that relate to agricultural sales. Members will also have the opportunity to interact with industry professionals. This will help them better understand career opportunities available to them, as well as the skills needed to earn these.

September 1 is the first day of school and……

Prosser - Freshmen orientation will be Aug. 31 from 8 a.m. 3 p.m. and then the first day of school, Sept. 1, will begin promptly at 8 a.m.
But before all of this, is registration and that will be Thursday, Aug. 27 in the MPR at 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. keep in mind that they will be taking pictures for ASB/ID cards so come dressed for photo.  This is a big change the school will not be taking pictures on the first day of school.

Hello again! The Court traveled to Marysville two weeks ago, for the Marysville Strawberry Festival, where the float received the Mayor's Award; we were pretty excited to receive an award we have never gotten before. This past weekend we traveled to Cashmere for their Founders' Day, Crunch Pak Grand Parade, what a blast!
A couple of Tuesdays ago, Princess Stephanie and I had the opportunity to speak at the City Council meeting. We spoke about what this program is about and the ways we promote the community. It was very nice to hear encouraging words back from some leaders of our community.
Mid-Columbia Libraries will be closed for Independence Day on Saturday, July 4. Have a safe and happy holiday! Looking for a holiday-themed read? Try downloading the inspiring "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand, or, for a somber reflection of what it means to be an American, we recommend "Red Berries, White Clouds, Blue Sky," by Sandra Dallas.
We're seeking small toys for our weekly children's story times, such as plastic or wooden animals, shapes, or vehicles; if you have gently used items that you can donate, they will go to good use! Also, we are always looking to increase our supply of LEGOs for the LEGO Club on Thursdays; baseplates and wheels are especially needed.
