From Mrs. Richards From Mrs. Richards
We know these are trying times for all of our families.  Please understand that our teachers are working hard to find ways to connect with each student/family.  They are trying to keep the learning momentum moving forward.  However, we understand that this is all new to you too.  Some families have members still working.  Some families have unreliable internet access. We ask that you encourage your children to do the best they can.  Encourage them to ask for help.  Let them take breaks.  We do not expect them to be able to make every zoom or google meeting.  Let them go outside.  Let them play and talk to them about how they are feeling during these uncertain times.  Read More

FFA members attend Leadership Conference
This past weekend, ten FFA members from the Otselic Valley FFA chapter attended the 212/360 Leadership Conference in Syracuse with about 900 other FFA members from across the state. This two-day event’s theme was “Influence.” The conference included sessions where students learned how to define influence and identify the influence process, along with recognize positive characteristics in relationships. Students learned how to determine if someone is trustworthy and explored methods for building others’ trust. They also learned about leadership and purpose. They participated in activities that taught them how to build relationships within their chapter and how to positively influence others. We are proud of all of the FFA members who took time out of their weekend to learn how to be a positive influence for our FFA chapter, school and community. Good job!
