The first hour class is Applied Science Where we are taking a deep dive into the world of animal science. Right now, we are investigating animals on the cellular level, which in- cludes experiments with osmosis and diffusion. Students are using a unique medium from this par— ticular experiment, gummy bears. Next, we are going to be looking at animal anatomy and getting hands-on experience by dissect- ing fetal pigs. Second hour gets us into met- al work with Agriculture Power and Technology. Students are cur- rently learning the ins and outs of welding techniques, specifically the MIG and stick welding tech— onto some industrial design and practices work. Those practices include a lab that looks for the cor— rect ratios for making concrete. Third Period is Mr. Arndt’s prep period. This usually includes getting labs andrmaterials ready for various classes throughout the day as well as catching up on grading and test preparations. There never seems to be a short- age of things to do when there are six classes in the department, each with its very different cur- riculum. ’You know what they say though — variety is the spice of life and education is no exception to that. Fourth hour begins our brOad look into the Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources, otherwise known as AFNR, field. This class offers an introduction into agriculture, designed for freshmen to upper classmen students. Class topics have included everything from the history and foundation of the FFA organization to learn— ing the basics of public speaking. We are starting our Natural Re- sources unit which will has the students exploring how soil is cre— ated; From there We look at the water cycle and discuss'the dif- ferences between fossil fuels and renewable fuels. niques. We will soon be moving. Fifih period brings us to 7th grade Woodworking. This class is designed to give students an un- derstanding of and proper use of woodworking tools. Because this is a quarter long class, we have just begun our journey through the shop. Students are working on learning common tools in the shop and their proper safety op— eration. Next, we will spend time using every tool discussed and will construct a project. Proj— ect ideas will be brainstormed and voted on by the class. Past proj- ects have included a candy dis- penser and keepsakes box. Upper classmen take over for the remainder of the day, they are broken up into 2 classes. Sixth hour is the Home and Auto class. This class is broken up into 3 ma- jor segments — landscape design, home construction, and finally car maintenance/small engine. Each includes a substantial project stu- dents complete at the conclusion of the unit, putting to use all of the knowledge and skills learned. The landscaping design project gives the students the opportuni- ty to create/design an area for the school, requiring them to calcu- late the volume of materials need- ed to cover that area and the cost associated with their chosen ma- terials. In the home construction unit, we look at basic electrical wiring, simple soldering and framing/construction. Students have the opportunity to do some wiring in various electrical sce- narios commonly found arctind the house as well as assembling mOdel garden sheds to get an un- derstanding of framing. The car maintenance/small engine seg- ment provides the opportunity for students to learn about the work- ing parts in a vehicle. Practicing the hands-on approach, they will be disassembling and reassem- bling a four-cycle engine. To end the day, the Agriculture Department offers Woods class. This class is designed to help stu— dents develop their skills in the various aspects of woodwork- ing design and fabrication. They have'spent the first part of the year looking at various styles of wood- VALLEY-EDINBURG HIGH SCHOOL First Quarter Honor Roll Sunshine Preschool Talking Turkey! the turkey, then put fire on it!

With the re- mainder of the semester, student have chosen their own projects and are taking those concepts into reality. We have a TV stand, a wine barrel table, a chest, a desk, and gun cabinet currently under construction. The hope is to have a project Show during a basketball game in January. An Agriculture Department report would not be complete without talking about the PRAHS FFA chapter. The FFA chapter has been doing a variety of things this fall and are excited about the up-and-coming winter events. We competed in the District 4 Leadership contest in Larimore in October with a strong standing. Freshmen Ian Rutherford recited the FFA Creed earning a silver placing while both Connor Hodek and Justin Jurgens participated in the Demonstration Speaking event. Hodek and J urgens demonstrated the process of readying a steer for a cattle show; they received a silver. Owen Zik— mund participated for his first time in the competition, delivering his speech in the Extemporaneous Speaking event and received a bronze award. Kenneth Porter, the current PRAHS FFA chapter president, competed in the Em- ployability Skills contest and earned a high silver for his efforts. It was a good showing and we are proud of how they did it. The chapter has just wrapped up our F FA fruit drive for the year. We appreciate the continued support from the community and are looking forward to delivering or- ders in the middle of December. Speaking of December, the PRAHS FFA chapter will once again be attending the Universi— ty of Minnesota, Crookston Ag and Natural Resources Day, De- cember 3rd. This event is open to various schools from around the area, offering the opportunity for students to experience firsthand an FF judging contest. There seems to be a lot of student interest this year so make sure to keep an eye out for those results. This spring we will have students competing in Livestock, Agronomy, and Ag Sales contests throughout the state. We look forward to a great year and promising things to come.
