Deon Youd Honored with Crystal Apple Award

English Teachers Ann Dart, Deon Youd with Craig Harvey of Horace Mann

Our extraordinary English and Leadership teacher, Deon Youd, was awarded the Crystal Apple Award on Wednesday, March 7th by Horace Mann.  Colleague and friend, Ann Dart, said this of Deon when presenting the award, "She is consistently “reaching her potential andfulfilling her educational goals.” Deon’s intellectual abilities are evident to all of us as we see her continuallysearching, reading, studying, and learning new things. Deon is definitely a life-long learner. We all know Deon as a hardworking, creative, innovative teacher who is willing to go the extra mile and take on a lot of added responsibilities to help make SFHS the outstanding school it is.  Deon is pleasant and cooperative to work with, and I think that it has been the experience of most of us as we have had the opportunity to enjoy her out-going, fun-loving, unique, and a bit sarcastic personality. Deon is definitely an influence for good, a positive example, and a tremendous asset to our school, and she is richly deserving of this Crystal Apple honor."

Floriculture Students in the greenhouse

Students in Mrs. Smith's floriculture class prepare for the spring by getting their planting started! People don't realize how early you need to start planting for the season. It takes time and effort, but the students in her class really enjoy what they get to do. So far they have planted Cana Lilies, Petunias, Zinias, and all their other bedding plants.  Students have to keep a close eye on things and make sure they get enough water, sunlight and fertilizer. When the flowers get big enough to sale the students will then be in charge of that as well. All together they say the class is a good break from the reality of school, you can be having a bad day but the second you walk in and see the flowers your mood totally changes. Something else that is exciting about floriculture is anyone is able to take the class. You don't have to have any special talents. It looks like its going to be a good season for the floriculture students.
