  • Last Chance for Plants!

    Save an innocent plant from a horrible death!

    The Ag department still has plenty of Geraniums, Gazanias, and Spaghetti Squash for sale. They will be selling them on Monday and Tuesday, May 22nd and 23rd, from approximately 830a until 430p. Stop by during those hours and pick up some of these beautiful flowers and plants. If you can not make it during those hours, call the school 654-2030 or Ag Building 654-2416 to see if arrangements can be made. Sometime on or after Wednesday, the leftover plants will die a horrendous death by dumpster. Only YOU can save them!
