For Thanksgiving the FFA Chapter challenged the whole school to a food drive to help fill the shelves at the Circle of Joy. We are proud to report that we filled five boxes to donate to the food pantry and the winning class was the Seniors!

Voters in the School District of Athens did not approve either of the District’s two referendum questions. The first question asked voters for permission to exceed the District’s revenue limits by $900,000 for 2022-23 and by $1.67 million each subsequent year. The money would have been used to pay for general operating expenses in light of the District’s significant budget shortfalls. The second question asked for permission to borrow $5.525 million to use for deferred maintenance and facility improvements. The Board of Education will discuss the referendum outcomes at its next meeting.

October 26th was the first day of the 95th annual National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. There were over 67,000 FFA members from across the country in attendance, and three of those members were ours. Our Athens FFA members got to tour the Fair Oaks Farm swine facility, walked through and talked to various businesses and colleges at the expo hall, connected with old friends and made new ones, attend sessions where they listened to amazing keynote speakers and retiring addresses, and got to have fun at the trampoline park. They had the opportunity to support our National Central Region Vice President from Wisconsin, Courtney Zimmerman as she gave her retiring address and closed out her amazing year of service.

REFERENDUM UPDATE: If approved, the referendum tax impact decreases due to additional state aid. Why? On October 15, our District was informed of additional state aid that results in a reduction to the property tax mill rate. As a result, the tax impact of an approved referendum has decreased for area taxpayers. Learn more on our referendum website: https://www.athens1.org/page/referendum
