Last Friday was the second day of the National FFA Convention. The day's Opening Ceremonies started with key note speaker, Courtenay Dehoff, who talked about striving for great things and adapting when plans change. After that, students were able to explore the agriscience fair posters and Hall of States, learning about agriculture around the country. Then, students attended the second general session where #WatertownWay's very own Brandon Boyd and Ethan Johnson took 2nd place overall in their division for the Agriscience Fair! 🥈 It was a very exciting day and a great achievement for the Watertown FFA! #FFA21 #WatertownFFA

Last Thursday, one of the 3rd grade music classes at Schurz Elementary School was fortunate to have a virtual Q&A time with Staff Sergeant William Samson! Tuba player Staff Sergeant Samson is a member of "The President's Own" United States Marine Band. Prior to the meeting, students learned about “The President’s Own” and watched various concert excerpts. The students were then able to ask Staff Sergeant Samson questions about what it is like to be a musician whose job is to play for White House events. Staff Sergeant Samson even made a deal with the students. If they send him a recording of “Hot Cross Buns” once they learn to play it on their recorders, he will send a recording of him playing “Hot Cross Buns” on his tuba in return. Staff Sergeant Samson encouraged our young musicians to work hard and persevere through the challenges of learning to play an instrument. A special "Thank You!" to Staff Sergeant Samson for providing our students this amazing experience! 💙💛 #WatertownWay
