The ACCHS FFA Chapter had a wonderful learning opportunity to listen to a presentation with Doug Grimm from Grimm’s Gardens about proper fruit tree installation. Students learned how to properly dig a hole for planting, place the tree, and how to care for it in the upcoming months. They also learned about sustaining the tree for a long life. The students watched as Doug demonstrated and performed the actions he was describing to the students.
The presentation offered a wealth of information for our students. The FFA members were able to assist Doug in planting the first fruit tree for the ACC Outdoor Learning Campus. There will be a total of 12 fruit trees planted—a combination of apple and pear trees.
The 2017 After Prom committee will sponsor a fundraiser dinner before the first night’s showing of Emma! our 2016 all-school musical. Chili, Chicken Noodle Soup, or Loaded Potato soup will be offered for a free will donation from 5:00 – 6:30 pm in the ACCHS Commons on November 4, 2016.
