National FFA Week. The Groton FFA Chapter will have dress up days for the student body. Students are also allowed to wear a hat/cap next week as long as they pay $1 per day before school in the library. They will need to put a sticker on their hat to be allowed to wear it. Each day will be a different sticker and teachers will have a picture of the sticker to look for that day.
If a student would like to dress up for a dress up day their outfit must be appropriate and follow the school dress code policy.
Tuesday – Pajama Day
Wednesday – Blue and Gold Day
Thursday – Farmer Day
Friday – Jersey Day
Seniors remember to give $2 to Ms. Erickson today.
