A group of seventh grade science students at Paxton School culminated their study of human impact on soil with a visit from Agricultural Engineer Herrika Thornton, from the United States Department of Agriculture's National Resource Conservation Service. Students saw real-world examples of erosion and nutrient depletion and learned how engineers work to design solutions to solve these problems on local agricultural lands. Thank you NRCS for giving back to our students and inspiring a future in STEM careers.
Paxton School honored and celebrated our United States veterans today with a moving and inspiring program. The program included special performances by the Sound of the Pride elementary chorus and the Paxton High School Band, which included the songs March of the Armed Forces, The Last Full Measure, Tribute for Band, and The Veteran's Song.
Principal Brent Jones opened the program and served as host throughout. Selected K-Kids representatives served as presenters of each branch flag.The Key Club presented a special flag folding ceremony and explained the symbolism of the 13 folds.
Special guest speaker of the day was Lt. Col. Kevin Kirby, retired Army, who shared with the students about his time in the service.
The school recognized the guests from the different branches of military service with a special gift. Concluding the program, our own Mr. Jones was recognized with a flag for his service in the military.
Paxton School wishes to thank everyone who helped make today’s special event possible.
