Accepting a check, Tavis Desormiers shakes hands with Cargill representative, Matt Gentry. Cargill Incorporated donated $3,750 to USD 208 to help offset some technology costs for the district.
|The dwarves (Tanner Lowry, Bernard Giefer, Austin Cramer, and Carter Minson) practice their song, “Where’d You Get that Bling.”|
The story begins in the Misty Forest, where a girl is sleeping all alone. But when she wakes, nothing looks familiar to her and she can't remember anything--not where she's from, how she got there, or even her own name.
The girl (played by senior Kacie Dunn) begins a journey to discover who she is, and she meets some fairy-tale characters along the way--Hansel & Gretel (seniors Alex & Lexus Haxton), Rumpelstiltskin (junior Bernard Giefer), Goldilocks (senior Bryn Hafliger) and the Three Bears. There is also Snow White (junior Amiya Schmitt) and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella (senior Cheyenne Nickelson), and Rapunzel (Cassidi Hickson), to name a few.
|Playing Princess Whatsername, Kacie Dunn practices a chase scene. “It is a chaotic but humorous part of the play where we get to ad lib and get the audience involved,” said Dunn.|
Some of the characters are helpful, some are dangerous, and some are just strange, but all have information to help the girl realize her true identity as a princess. As with any good fairy tale, there's also a prince(senior Sean Conness) who is desperate to find the princess, but he's always one step behind and manages to rescue and win the hearts of all the wrong princesses!
The choir is excited to perform this play. They invite all the community to come and watch the performance. Tickets are $5 for adults and $4 for students.

By Adrian Dietz
With senior year coming to a fast close, Molly Moden plans to head to either Kansas State University or Baylor University. “I plan on getting my MBA (masters in business management) and minor in marketing,” states Moden.
Since she knows that this year will be her last spent in high school, Moden intends to “Go all out in everything.” Knowing how quickly the years have flown by, this idea carries over into her advice for the underclassmen to “cherish the moment.”
Reflecting on all the classes she has taken over the last four years, Moden named the student business as her favorite class because she isn’t just sitting around, and she is fond of making and designing products. However, her least favorite class was Spanish because she just wasn’t interested in learning a new language.
Moden admitted that if she could go back, she would have tried harder to maintain good grades and a higher GPA. However, she knows that high school will have a lasting impact on her life. “It’s opened me up to new things,” stated Moden.

Some FCCLA members got the opportunity to travel to Hoxie to attend the District A Fall Leadership Conference on October 5.
Trego had twenty members and one sponsor attend the conference. This year’s theme was “Superstars of FCCLA.”The conference kicked-off with introductions of the district officers. After the opening ceremony, the president introduced the key note speaker, C.J. Luckey. Luckey spent an hour speaking and rapping to the students about bullying and respecting themselves.
After lunch, everybody went to three breakout sessions. These sessions included subjects about leadership, cooking, bullying, and being humble. After the breakout sessions the district president concluded the conference with a closing ceremony.
Adrianne Car, the Co-Publicity officer of the Trego FCCLA organization, commented on the experience.
“I thought the speaker was cool because he was upbeat and really inspiring.”
Community Appreciation Day will be on Wednesday, October 26 and will begin at 8:00 a.m.
Students will meet at the high school, eat breakfast provided by the high school, then go to assigned jobs with an adult sponsor. At this time, we will also be picking up food donations for the Food Bank.
For lunch, everyone will return to the high school for a grilled hamburger lunch which will cost one lunch from the student’s lunch ticket.
After that, they will continue to do community jobs until 3:00 p.m.
We want to continue to say thanks to the community by providing helping hands on odd jobs that anyone in the community may have. Community Appreciation Day gives students the opportunity to give back to their community, work with a variety of people, learn cooperative work skills, apply problem solving, and feel good about helping others.
If you have any questions or concerns, would like to sponsor a small group on that day, have a job for us, or would like to excuse your child from being involved in Community Appreciation Day, please call 743-2061 by Monday, October 24.
